Hank Williams Jr. has the top selling independent album in the country with his new CD, Old School, New Rules.  The new CD debuts at #4 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart and #12 on Billboard’s Top U.S. Albums chart.  This gives the country music legend the highest peak position of his career on the overall chart, surpassing his previous high of #16 achieved by 1964’s “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and the 2006 compilation, “That’s How They Do It In Dixie: The Essential Collection.”

“Old School, New Rules” is the first album on Hank Williams, Jr.’s new label imprint, Bocephus Records, licensed to Blaster Records with distribution by Warner Music Nashville.

“Bocephus delivered a musically brilliant album,” says Tom Porter, CEO of Blaster Entertainment, “Our team worked really hard to build awareness and the audience responded. All the pieces came together for us and we couldn’t be more pleased to celebrate this with Hank.”

“I’ve got some of the best, most loyal fans out there,” say Hank Williams, Jr. “This album was for them; it was their voices that encouraged the writing process for me.”

Hank Williams Jr., known to many American football fans for his "Monday Night Football Song," decided to change the lyrics to "All my Sarah friends are coming over tonight."About Hank Williams, Jr.: With more than 70 albums to his credit, sales of 55 million records, countless awards including 5-time Entertainer of the Year awards (ACM & CMA), BMI Icon Award, a Grammy, and most recently in 2009 the Academy of Country Music “Pioneer Award,” Williams is a living legend. His discography chronicles a bold profile of growth from adored offspring of a legendary father, to titan of the modern country rock movement in his own right. For two decades, America came to its collective feet each fall Monday night when this larger than life superman of a musician looked into the camera and unleashed the national anthem for viewers of Monday Night Football – ‘Are You Ready for Some Football?’ Those simple words have won Williams an entirely new generation of fans and given him the distinction of being the first country performer to ever win an Emmy.
