The third volume of the PettyTest™ celebrates the music of one of America’s most treasured icons – a rock-n-roll heartland legend who gave us a river of unforgettable songs over a career that spanned nearly half a century.

From his 1976 self-titled debut to his final studio release, Hypnotic Eye (2014), Petty served up a contagiously singable mix of arena-anthem rockers and heart-aching ballads in as authentic and unique a voice as you’ll ever hear.

Rest in peace, Tom. You’re an American hero!
