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.
