Bocephus speaks! (Well--as if he's ever had a problem with speaking his mind?) But this time, much to the pleasure of his loyal rowdy friends out there, he's speaking about his first new album in three years, Old School, New Rules.
In these two exclusive clips, Hank Jr. explains to Yahoo! Music the thoughts, stories, and songwriting processes behind each track on the new album. Junior's fired up in general this year after his much-reported split with ESPN in 2011 following a controversial appearance on Fox And Friends--and he's got plenty to say about the messages he's conveying on this record, including commentary on the military, markets, political talk shows, and the general state of the country.
But, true to form, Hank Jr. keeps it fun as well as directive. Keep an eye out for fellow legend the Hag (who appears on the new record) in these videos, as well as Jr.'s opinion on Waylon Jennings's take on a Hank Sr. classic. Oh yes, and why you should never kick a cow turd on a hot day (there is a presidential reference here--although don't worry, it's funny, not offensive!).
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).
