In "That Ain't Good," the latest single from legendary entertainer Hank Williams, Jr., the irascible Bocephus bemoans everything from a bad boss to a busted-up marriage. But the reality of the video shoot for the song appears a lot more rosy than those thorny situations. Hank shares behind-the scenes footage exclusively with The Boot (Watch the footage above). Shot on the streets of Nashville, and inside Springwater, one of Music City's best-loved watering holes, director Jim Wright says the clip deals with "past and future Hank" and spotlights the iconic performer and his status as Nashville royalty. The clip also depicts Hank tooling around town in a classic car and obviously having a good time, in spite of the song's contradictory theme. "That Ain't Good" is the first track from Hank's latest album, Old School, New Rules, out today (July 10).
Country music kingpin and patriot Hank Williams Jr. continues to sing of his politics, not to mention his vision for America and its citizenry. The man’s got a new album out Tuesday titled “Old School, New Rules,” complete with a few lyrics that go a little something like this:
“Don’t tread on me, political correctness has run its course’,” “Barack, pack your bags, head to Chicago, take your teleprompter with you,” “I got a list of taxes I thought were a joke — inheritance, death, say, any quarters in that coffin?” All are gleaned from Mr. Williams‘ 12 new songs; see the collection here: www.hankjr.com.
He’s still rowdy. Consider a few of those titles: “Takin’ Back The Country”, “I’m Gonna Get Drunk And Play Hank Williams” — a duet withBrad Paisley) — plus “We Don’t Apologize for America” and “Stock Market Blues”.
