Before Hank Williams Jr. had the rowdy Nissan Stadium crowd in unison to “Family Tradition,” the country icon was presented with a Gold RIAA plaque for more than 500,000 sales of the single as well as a Platinum RIAA plaque for more than 1,000,000 sales of “A Country Boy Can Survive.”
Hank Jr., who recently released his 37th studio album IT’S ABOUT TIME (Nash Icon Records), also performed his latest latest single, “The Party’s On” and “Are You Ready for the Country” with Eric Church. Bocephus also brought Justin Moore and Chris Janson on stage to perform “Born to Boogie.”
Hank Jr.’s 2016 shows have all been SOLD OUT and he continues to add additional dates (see tour schedule below). This summer Hank Jr. will co-headline a special limited summer tour with Chris Stapleton when the two music renegades visit 8 cities with dates lined up in Houston, Austin, West Palm Beach, Detroit (Clarkston), Cleveland, Indianapolis and Cincinnati.
