October 4th: Jett Williams
Jett Williams says if she made up the story of her life it wouldn’t compare to the real thing; others agree. She was born Antha Belle Jett in Montgomery, AL on January 6th, 1953, the daughter of Bobbie Jett of Nashville, TN and Hank Williams. Her birth came five days after the untimely death of her famous father and two days after his funeral in Montgomery – an extravagant event attended by some 25,000 fans and friends. Hank's mother, Lillian, adopted the baby after a two year ordeal and renamed her Catherine Yvonne. Lillian died two weeks later, and Jett became a ward of the state. She was adopted again and raised without a clue as to her true identity.
In the early 1980’s, Jett went on a search for her true identity. Dead end after dead end and failure after failure led her eventually to Keith Adkinson, an investigative attorney from Washington, DC, whom she later married. After many years she finally learned of her heritage. She made her professional singing debut on June 4th, 1989 in Evergreen, AL and began touring the world shortly thereafter backed by her dad’s old band, The Drifting Cowboys. Jett wrote her autobiography in 1990 and made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry in December, 1993. She has performed at over 800 across the globe and has made over 1,000 major media appearances. Jett and Keith make it a point to “give back” to their community by, among other things, being the largest scholarship donors in their county. She is also a motivational speaker. Jett’s saga is truly the stuff movies are made of. And truth is better than fiction.
