Singer/songwriter Hank Williams, Jr. has proven himself a worthy successor to his father’s legacy, producing some of the most memorable country songs of his generation. A creative and versatile performer, Williams is a longtime favorite with ticket buyers for his straight-shooting live concerts that span the breadth of his catalog, from wistful love ballads like “The Last Love Song” to hard-edged honky-tonk anthems like “Hotel Whiskey.” In the summer of 2013, Williams embarked on a nationwide tour to promote Old School, New Rules, a 12-song album that encapsulates Williams' no-nonsense style with its mix of gravel-voiced blues and ballads.
The son of the iconic Hank Williams, Williams, Jr. debuted at the Grand Ole Opry at the ripe old age of 11. By 14, he had cut his first single, a version of his father’s classic “Long Gone Lonesome Blues.” Joining MGM Records in 1970, he began to carve out his own sound, culminating in 1979 with the album Family Tradition, which quickly went gold. Williams' output in the '80s included six consecutive No. 1 albums and the iconic hit “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight,” which was famously used as the NFL's Monday Night Football theme for many years. As a performer, Williams has stood the test of time, impressing fans at his 2013 shows and building anticipation for his 2014 tour dates. It’s a sure bet that wherever Hank Williams, Jr. is playing, all his rowdy friends will be there cheering him on.
