About Hank Williams Jr.
With more than 70 albums to his credit and 55 million albums sold, Williams has a fascinating career for a legend still in his prime. 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. He has amassed 5 platinum albums, 20 gold albums, 13 chart-topping albums, and 10 number one singles. Country classics like “A Country Boy Can Survive,” “Dixie on My Mind,” and “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight,” are all part of his illustrious career.
Williams has received 16 BMI songwriting honors and even a Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Collaboration in 1989. 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.
Williams has also been named Entertainer of the Year five times, and was the recipient of the prestigious 2009 Academy of Country Music “Pioneer Award.” In 2012, Williams launched Bocephus Records and immediately signed a licensing deal with Blaster Records, distributed by Warner Music Nashville. He has dominated social media with more than 1.4 million likes on Facebook and over 85,000 twitter followers. Needless to say, his career is one for the history books. In his personal life, Williams is an avid sportsman, cigar aficionado, and Civil War enthusiast.
