Hank Jr. Releases Album Of Conservative Zeitgeist

July 13, 2012 by  

For conservative country music fans looking for a song to psych them up for an end to the Presidency of Barack Obama in November, Hank Williams Jr. has you covered.

The country-music superstar and son of a country-music superstar has a new album in stores now entitled “Old School, New Rules” that is sure to please fans of his classic-country sound the Nation over. Though Williams has joined the ranks of living country legends, his new album — his first in three years — takes notes from some of America’s most iconic artists as he captures the spirit of the times in a few politically charged tracks.

In the album’s opening track, “Takin’ Back The Country,” Williams has a clear message for Obama: “Hey Barack, pack your bags…” Later in the album, the singer reminds Americans that they needn’t apologize for being fortunate enough to be citizens of a country built upon the principles of freedom and liberty in “We Don’t Apologize For America.”

In a track that sounds as if it could have been part of Presidential candidate Ron Paul’s campaign message or pulled from one of Ayn Rand’s iconic works on the value of Objectivism, Williams ponders “Who’s Takin’ Care Of Number One”?

In just more than 40 minutes of material, Williams takes on the President, the mainstream media and the Federal government’s assault on core American values with the skill of a seasoned editorial writer, and he still manages to include a couple of good drinking songs.

Listen to the full album below:

 

 

Last fall, Williams made national headlines when the cast of “Fox and Friends” took issue with the artist’s description of the relationship between Obama and Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner as being similar to Adolf Hitler and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu being buddies.

 

 

The statement later caused ESPN to drop Williams’ decades-old “Are You Ready For Some Football” intro from its televised Monday night NFL games. But the singer said he emerged from the media-stirred controversy in the months following with a growing fan base.

      • restorefreedom

    God Bless You, Hank! We love your new CD!!! Go Hank!!!!

  • MAP

    Hank sounds off, telling it like it is, and puts the liberals’ panties in a knot. You gotta love it! Let the crying and whining begin. Har!

      Actually I think the Dixie Chicks are great.

        Yeah, G. Bush was a poor president. But they were wrong in saying that they were ashamed he came from Texas. Bush is a Conn. carpetbagger, not a Texan. He was also not a conservative. But then, Obama isn’t an American and is a truly rotten president. Bush destroyed Iraq; Obama destroyed the US. I woldn’t raise my voice to defend either one of them.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “MAP,”

        HOW DID President George Walker Bush DESTROY IRAQ?

    Hank is just as relevant to the political dialog as Ted Nugent or Lady Gaga… not at all. He has his own ax to grind and I’m glad he has the right to do it, but spare me the BS that “Hank speaks for me” when I am sure he isn’t doing it for any other reason than to sell a few records. If he was serious about changing the political landscape, he’d run for office but he probably doesn’t have enough money to do that since our country was put up for sale to the highest bidder.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “DAK,”

      YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE PURPOSE OF ART. WHEN AN ARTIST CREATES, HE IS EXPRESSING HIS INTERNAL FEELINGS OUTWARD. EVERYDAY PEOPLE IN AGREEMENT WITH THAT EXPRESSION SEE THEMSELVES THROUGH THAT ARTIST.

      SO, LIKING Hank Williams, Jr.’s’ MUSIC IS SAYING, “HIS EXPRESSION IS YOUR EXPRESSION.” EVERY EXPRESSION DOES NOT HAVE TO BE REALIZED THROUGH POLITICS.

    DAK Little Hank fell off of a mountain some years back and lost a lot of gray matter.We have to cut him a little slack in his effort at politics and especially the math. 1+1=3, he’s good, reminds me of Palin.

  • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

    WHENEVER I SEE ARTICLES LIKE THIS, I ALWAYS THINK ABOUT ONE OF MY FAVORITE TELEVISION SERIES – Beverly Hillbillies. OF COURSE, THE STAR OF THE SHOW WAS, Irene Ryan (“Granny”) – HER “White Lightening,” “Spring Tonic,” AND LOVE OF President Jefferson Davis MADE “Granny” QUITE LOVEABLE.

    PEOPLE SEEM TO CONFUSE SOUTHERN BIAS WITH SOUTHERN CULTURE. ANY FAN OF, Monday Night Football, UNDERSTOOD Hank Williams, Jr.’s JINGLE WAS “ROWDY FUN&GAMES” DESIGNED TO “HYPE YOU UP” FOR THE GAME.

    “OFF-COLOR” HUMOR IS JUST THAT – “OFF-COLOR” HUMOR.

    I’m sure the Obama camp will be screaming and spitting nails over the new album. Tough-tit, Obama. Hank is saying what many of us are feeling and we love him – unlike what we feel for you, D-head. You keep shoveling your lies about Romney and you bury yourself deeper. Keep it up and learn how much we detest you and all your lies. It’s going to be a really tough lesson for your oversized ego to handle. I relly don’t think your slight grip on sanity can handle the defeat. Too bad.

  • teaparty13

    I’m not a hugh Hank Jr fan, but after hearing the cd on this link, I bought it from Itunes. Hope Romney & other GOP candidiates use some of the songs on their campaigns.

  • Jeremy Leochner

    I don’t feel it was right to drop his iconic intro just for expressing his honest views. I disagree with him and his views. However his intro should not have been gotten rid of simply for him expressing them. And besides it left all of us dangerously unprepared for some football.

  • rick

    Hank Williams Jr. is just telling it like it is, in the best way that he can, through his music. Hes standing up for his beliefs and what he thinks is right, you dont have to agree with him or his message but you have to love his honesty. If more people would grow a set and speak out against what they think is wrong, instaed of what they think is politcally correct we wouldnt be in this mess.
