Hank Williams Jr.
presented locally by AT&T
Grammy award winner Hank Williams Jr. prepares to invigorate audiences with his new album Old School, New Rules at the Fox Theatre on Friday, June 28 at 8 p.m. Locally presented by AT&T.
A clearly energized Hank will perform songs from his new album Old School, New Rules with a vigor and sense of purpose that makes ample use of his remarkable musicality, instantly recognizable vocals, and always-present charisma. The album contains 11 new songs, 10 of them self-penned.
Williams is empowered by loyalty to his homeland in the USA, and sings songs that are unabashedly patriotic and sung from the heart.
"I am excited about returning to the great city of Detroit and visiting my rebel son Kid Rock. I am proud to play at a venue like the Fox Theatre, a stage deeply rooted in American history." – Hank Williams Jr.
But not all the material on Old School is politically charged. "Old School," one of the album's many highlights, pays homage to the country legends who gave Hank a personal musical education, and is a song only Hank could write truthfully.
Williams has no doubt had a long and successful career and continues to make sparks in the industry. In October 1982, Williams had nine albums on the Billboard music charts at the same time, a feat unequaled by any other living artist. Hank has received 16 songwriting honors from Broadcast Music, Inc., had 10 #1 singles, 13 #1 albums, 20 gold and five platinum albums and a double platinum (Greatest Hits, Vol. I). In 1987, Hank won the first of five straight Entertainer of the Year awards voted to him by his peers, and won his first ever Grammy. As a touring artist, Hank was a pioneer in bringing arena rock production values to country music, and he remains one of the most consistent ticket sellers in music, period, as generation after generation gets turned on to one of the most dynamic live performers ever to take the stage.
