Hank Williams Jr.
Republican? Democrat? Other? Some country stars aren’t saying, but a few have made their views on the 2012 presidential election public.
Headliners at the 2013 Stagecoach Festival in Southern California include Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, and the Zac Brown Band.
When the “Hard To Love” singer was a struggling songwriter in Nashville, he got a chance to play music, drink whiskey, and talk about the Civil War with Hank Jr. “It was the night of my life,” he says.
In a new Rolling Stone interview, Hank Williams, Jr. thanks ESPN for his career resurgence and says President Obama is “the worst” and “hates America.”
And after referring to the country as the “United Socialist States of America,” Williams sings “I’ll keep the USA and y’all can keep the change,” an apparent reference to President’s 2008 campaign slogan.
“Are you ready for some football?” Well, yes. We are. But Monday nights will be without Hank Williams Jr.’s familiar refrain.
Are you ready for some… wait, what? Hank Williams Jr.’s classic Monday Night Football anthem was nowhere to be heard after the singer used an analogy to Hitler in discussing President Obama.
