Hank Williams Jr. and I definitely aren’t going to agree on politics very often, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy his music. And if this is what his new stuff sounds like, it’s going to be hard not to keep enjoying it.
This is “.44 Special Blues”, the oldest sounding new song I’ve heard in a very long time. They really don’t write ’em like this anymore. Maybe that’s not a bad thing in general, but now and then a little bit of old timey whorin’ around and threats of death for doing so still sound good to me. I’m very much looking forward to having a beer or three and listening to the rest of “Rich White Honky Blues” when it comes out on June 17th.
