Church celebrates the Hank Williams sound

David Church plays traditional country music and is well-known for sounding like Hank Williams. Hear Church Friday Oct. 4 at the State Theatre in Zumbrota.

Singer/songwriter David Church is known for his uncanny ability to sound like country legend Hank Williams.

Crossings brings Church to the State Theatre in Zumbrota 7:30 p.m. Friday Oct. 4.

Church is a Nashville recording artist who, though best known for his ability to “sound like Hank,” also performs and records originals.

He was surrounded by country and bluegrass music from his birth in Lancaster, Ohio – a small town on the outskirts of Columbus.

He began playing banjo at age 5 and eventually was heavily influenced by Williams’ vocal style.

Church said he remains true to traditional country music and has become a standard-bearer of that sound for all those who long for it but rarely hear it on the radio.

Church has been featured on RFD-TV’s popular show “Midwest Country” for more than seven years. He continues to make regular tours throughout the world.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $28 at the door. To reserve tickets, go to, call 507-732-7616 or stop in to Crossings at 320 East Avenue in Zumbrota.
