Who Is Hank Williams Jr

Hank Williams Jr. launched his country music career imitating his father’s traditional style. But into the 1970s, he went his own direction with hard-driving music that incorporated elements of Southern Rock and Outlaw Country.

American singer-songwriter and musician Hank Williams Jr has a net worth of $50 million dollars, as of 2020. His music is known to blend Southern rock, blues, and country.
  • The nickname “Bocephus” was given to Hank Jr. by his father — after the pint-sized dummy of ventriloquist/comedian Rod Brasfield.
  • Williams sung the theme song for Monday Night Football. It was a reworking of his rowdy hit “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight.”

In 1949, Hank Williams Jr. was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, to country legend Hank Williams and his wife Audrey. Hank Williams died in 1953, when Hank Jr. was three years old; he never got to know his famous father.

From a young age Hank began performing onstage, with a repertoire made largely of his father’s songs. At age 11 he debuted on the Grand Ole Opry. He released his first album in 1963, Songs My Father Left Me, which continued his walk in his father’s footsteps.

Sick of being a nostalgia act, Hank Jr. took his music into a more rock-influenced direction in the early 1970s — culminating with his breakthrough album Hank Williams Jr. and Friends in 1976.

Shortly before the album’s release, he suffered from a fall from a mountain that nearly took his life. Hank Jr. had serious facial injuries that it took several years, and numerous rounds of surgery, to recover from.

He returned to the country fold with 1977’s One Night Stands, followed in 1979 with two of the biggest records of his career: Family Tradition and Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound.
