    Never one to stay silent for long, country music Icon, Hank Williams, Jr., is set to embark on a multi-city tour throughout the country kicking off on March 3 in St. Augustine, FL. With 16 dates (and more to be added) and a new album on the horizon, the outlaw is sure to make some noise while sharing his timeless music with new and old fans alike! Hank does things his way, like Frank Sinatra.

    Fans can look forward to hearing new material, written within weeks of his 2011 controversial remarks. In case you forgot, HW Jr. made a comment about President Obama on a FOX news show, comparing him to Hitler and the uproar ensued, which resulted in his song being yanked from Monday Night Football after years of usage and familiarity. His rallying cry, "Are you ready for some football?," became synonymous with Monday Night Football. It was permanently yanked from broadcasts last fall. Hank responded by writing songs and he was not a shrinking violet. He owned his comments.
