Hank Williams Jr., who has sold more than 70 million albums around the world, emerged in the footsteps of his father, the legendary Hank Williams. The son found his greatest success during the late-1970s and into the 1980s with songs such as “Family Tradition,” “A Country Boy Can Survive,” “All My Rowdy Friends are Comin’ Over Tonight,” “Born to Boogie” and many more.
Williams most recent studio release was the album “Old School New Rules,” which was released on his own Bocephus Records/Blaster label in July 2012. The disc, which peaked at number 4 on the U.S. Country albums chart and number 12 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, features the single “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink,” a collaboration with Merle Haggard.
In April, Williams signed a deal with Nash Icon Records becoming the fourth artist to join the label. Williams, whose labelmates include Reba McEntire, Martina McBride and Ronnie Dunn, is scheduled to record his first album for the new label this year, his 37th album overall.
