Last night in Nashville, Hank Williams, Jr. and Brad Paisley took the stage together during the CMT Music Awards to sing a new song called “I’m Gonna Get Drunk And Play Hank Williams.” The song will be faeatured on Hank’s new album, “Old School, New Rules,” that will be available everywhere on July 10.
Hank and Brad played to a crowd of nearly 30,000 people on the streets of Nashville as they played on a stage outside of Bridgestone Arena, where the Awards took place.
Tonight was a special night! Having Brad perform with me and especially on my new album is something special…It’s a good ‘ole honky-tonk song that Brad-cephus and Bocephus had a lot of fun playing tonight! – Hank Williams, Jr.
I count as one of my greatest blessings in this career being able to get to know Hank…When I heard the song, I said, ‘This is perfect’. It’s such a great tribute to his dad. The idea that two of us from this generation are getting together to forget a woman with the music of his father is too much fun! It’s a highlight for me! – Brad Paisley
“I’m Gonna Get Drunk and Play Hank Williams” is available now as a digital download on iTunes. You can preorder Hank’s new album at www.hankjr.com.
