Jason Aldean might have something that all the guys want. He was on ESPN showing off his “mancave” and being a life-long fan of Georgia football, even though he lives outside Nashville. Jason introduces his fans to his bulldog, Athens, whose grandfather was one of the Georgia Bulldogs mascots. He jokes that she might be a “weird crossbreed” because of one of her bad habits. See why in the interview below and let us know what you would have in your mancave:

Hank Williams Jr Finding Out Breakups Aren’t Easy

Hank Williams Jr.

Just to stir the pot a little more, Hank Williams Jr released yet another statement saying he’s decided to pull “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight” from ESPN’s Monday Night Football.  The announcement comes after ESPN announced their decision to suspend Hank’s song on October 3rd following his statement comparing President Barack Obama to Hitler.

In his statement, Hank said:

“After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision. By pulling my opening OCTOBER 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the toes of THE FIRST AMENDMENT FREEDOM OF SPEECH, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It’s been a great run.”

ESPN decided to take the classier route with their statement, following his statement (are you still following me here?):

“We have decided to part ways with Hank Williams Jr. We appreciate his contributions over the past years. The success of ‘Monday Night Football’ has always been about the games and that will continue.”

Looks like ESPN is going to have to find a new theme song. So what song would you pick for the new Monday night theme?
