He was supported by his band, ''The Heartbreakers,'' for the majority of his career. He occasionally released solo work, as is the case with 2006's ''Highway Companion,'' on which he performed most of the backing instrumentation himself. However, members of The Heartbreakers have played on each of his solo albums and the band has always backed him when touring in support of those albums. He has also toured with ''Mudcrutch'' in order to promote their debut album. Petty has been managed by Tony Dimitriades since 1976. On February 3, 2008, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers performed at the Super Bowl XLII Halftime show.

He had a minor but credited acting role as a mayor in Creator/KevinCostner's post-apocalyptic (and [[SnarkBait box office]]) disaster film ''Film/ThePostman'' and was the voice of Lucky (Luanne Platter's redneck boyfriend turned husband) on the later seasons of the Creator/{{FOX}} sitcom ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' (though the first time Lucky appeared on a ''King of the Hill'' episode was "The Redneck of Rainey Street," which focused on Kahn and Minh becoming trailer trash after Kahn, Jr. gets rejected from a college prep summer school program).
