JIMMY HALL AND THE PRISONERS OF LOVE
Jimmy Hall formed Wet Willie, and was signed by Capricorn Records. Hall shared the studio and stage with artists such as The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jeff Beck Group, Grand Funk Railroad, and a host of others while Wet Willie gained the reputation as one of the hardest working bands on the road. Gregg Allman once said that Hall “…is the hardest man to follow on stage that I ever worked with”. As Wet Willie helped to create the Southern Rock genre they scored a major radio success with Keep on Smiling. This record solidified their place in rock and roll history, and Wet Willie’s hits are still being played on the radio today. Hall has gone on to record many other records with Wet Willie, as a solo artist, and has worked with many others in the studio and live, including Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks (Allman Brothers Band), and Chuck Leavell (Allman Brothers Band, Rolling Stones) in BHLT. It was, however, his featured vocals in 1986 on the critically acclaimed Jeff Beck album Flash that Hall received his greatest accolade: a Grammy nomination for Best Male Vocalist. In 1981 Hall moved to Nashville to raise his family, hugely influencing his three sons as they grew into their own remarkable musical talents. During this time Hall worked as bandleader, vocalist, saxophonist, and harmonica player for Hank Williams, Jr. Next, Hall formed the Prisoners of Love with top Nashville musicians and recorded the outstanding Rendezvous CD. Gregg Allman later recorded one of the album’s tunes, the Hall-penned Rendezvous with the Blues.
Jimmy Hall has numerous television performances under his belt including American Bandstand, Solid Gold, and recent CMT specials such as Crossroads (with Hank Williams, Jr. and Kid Rock), CMA Music Fest (with Hank, Jr.), Summer Fest (with Hank, Jr.), The Jeff Foxworthy Show and CMT’s Artists of the Year. He also appeared in numerous interviews on Greatest Moments with Hank Williams, Jr. and was featured on backing vocals, harmonica, and sax in the first televised Outlaws concert.
Wet Willie released a new live CD in January of 2012, and Jimmy continues to tour with Wet Willie, as well as Jimmy Hall & Friends, Hank Williams, Jr., as a special guest with other well known bands and musicians, and as a duo at select house concerts and listening rooms.
