There is some good news for all the lovers of Country music as the legendary singer of this genre, Hank Williams Jr., will conduct a performance tour all across North America. These shows will be conducted in order to promote his upcoming release, “127 Rose Avenue.” The album will be launched on 16th June by Curb Records.

All those are interested in this genre of music will surely know that the lead single of the album is ” Red, White and Pink-Slip Blues.” This single has been reigning all the country music charts. It has already spent four weeks on the Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and is still going strong. In addition to this, the video is undergoing continuous rotation on the CMT.

The probable reason for the immense popularity of this song is the fact that it is based on the present economic scenario of the whole world, especially the United States of America. It must be mentioned that the economic downturn has induced artists of various genres to come up with their own version of the crisis. The song has been written by Arthur Tower and Mark Stephen Jones. The release of the upcoming album is greatly awaited because it will be coming after a long gap of almost 6 years since Hank Williams Jr.’s last single. One of You, was released in 2003. Williams is also scheduled to perform in the Expo Center on June 13, during the biker rally.

Hank Williams Jr. is probably best known for his rendition of the theme song for Monday Night Football, based on his 1984 hit, “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight”. Williams’ opening themes for Monday Night Football earned him four Emmy awards from 1991 to 1994. He even won a Grammy award in 1990 for Best Country Vocal Collaboration.
