Nashville, TN (January 9, 2013) – If country music and the great outdoors were to meet, the crossroad would probably result in a camouflage guitar. Such was the thinking of famed hunter and entrepreneur, Andy Ross, star of the Sportsman Channel’s TV show “Maximum Archery.” The custom Krossroad guitar emblazoned in the ever-popular Realtree™ camouflage is now a reality…and thanks to Country Music superstar Hank Williams Jr., Krossroad Guitars™ and Andy Ross, fans will have the opportunity to win one autographed by Hank through a contest on Facebook!!

His discography chronicles a bold profile of growth from adored offspring of a legendary father, to titan of the modern country rock movement in his own right. For two decades, America came to its collective feet each fall Monday night when this larger than life superman of a musician looked into the camera and unleashed the national anthem for viewers of Monday Night Football – ‘Are You Ready for Some Football?’ Those simple words have won Williams an entirely new generation of fans and given him the distinction of being the first country performer to ever win an Emmy.
The entertainer has received 16 songwriting honors from Broadcast Music, Inc., had 10 number one singles, 13 number one albums, 20 gold and five platinum albums and a double-platinum album (Greatest Hits, Vol. I). In1987, Hank won the first of five straight Entertainer of the Year awards voted to him by his peers and won his first ever Grammy. Hank has also been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, is a BMI Icon award winner and one of the best-selling artists in country music history. His current album, Old School New Rules is in stores now and provided the highest charting debut of his career.
With more than 70 albums to his credit, sales of 55 million records, countless awards including 5-time Entertainer of the Year awards (ACM & CMA), BMI Icon Award, a Grammy, and most recently in 2009 the Academy of Country Music “Pioneer Award,” Hank Williams Jr. is a living legend.
Ross, best known for producing some of the world’s best hunting bows and for his television shows “Maximum Archery” is anything but a newcomer to the world of producing quality musical equipment. In the 1960’s, his father, Bud Ross, founded Kustom Electronics and at one time, was the largest music equipment manufacturer in the world, producing Kustom Amplifiers, easily identified by a tuck-and-roll appearance.
As a result, Andy grew up surrounded by legendary artists and developed a personal love for music that parallels his love for hunting.
"It gives me great pleasure to draw on more than 50 years of music equipment manufacturing experience and introduce Krossroad Guitars” says Andy.
