Jett Williams' performance Friday at the American Music Theatre will be one of her first since the June 19 death of her husband, Fletcher "Keith" Adkinson.
"Someone offered to let me out of the contract," Williams says during a telephone interview from her Nashville, Tenn., home, "and I said, 'You know, I really believe my husband would be more upset if I didn't continue.'
"We thought we had all the time in the world."
Williams, the daughter of country music icon Hank Williams, will perform as part of the Ladies Night Show, which includes singers Crystal Gayle (her band will accompany all the artists), Barbara Fairchild, Norma Jean, Shelly West, Jan Howard, Ava Barber and Leona Williams.
