Hank Williams, Jr: So you think you know ol’ Bocephus? Well, get ready for the most outspoken, controversial, flat-out rowdy Hank Williams, Jr. album in years with Old School, New Rules. A clearly energized Hank tackles 11 new songs—10 of them self-penned— with a vigor and sense of purpose that makes ample use of his remarkable musicality, instantly recognizable vocals, and always-present charisma.
The ideas for the songs that became Old School, New Rules flowed like a river, and Hank started churning out songs quickly—on an iPad these days. “When I came up with that line, ‘they made a huge miscalculation about the mood of this nation,’” he says, citing a lyric from the impeccably titled “Cow Turd Blues,” “I thought, yep, time to get the iPad out and put this down. I really got pretty motivated.”
