Hank Williams Jr. Writes New Song in Response to ‘Monday Night Football’ Controversy
We haven't heard the last from Hank Williams Jr. The country legend is taking his dispute with ESPN and FOX News to iTunes, announcing that he'll release a new song called 'I'll Keep My …' for download later today or early Tuesday. Williams is also ramping up a media tour, with scheduled appearances on 'The View' and 'Hannity.'
The AP reports the song takes 'Fox and Friends' to task for twisting his words. "So Fox `n Friends wanna put me down / Ask for my opinion / Twist it all around," he sings before finishing the verse with, "Well two can play that gotcha game you'll see." While the initial report indicated the song could be available at any time in the next 24 hours, a new post at Wiliams' website indicates that Tuesday is the more likely target.
Early in the song Williams says the U.S. is "going down the drain," and later encourages listeners to keep both television networks out of your home. In addition to the song, Williams has announced an addition to his official online store. Fans can now get a 'Hank Jr. For President' t-shirt. The white tee is emblazoned with the Hank Jr. logo and comes in multiple sizes, but just the one color.
Williams' interview with 'The View' is scheduled for Tuesday, October 11. “Whoopi (Goldberg) and Joy (Behar) understood what I was saying,” he says on his website. “After watching the clip of their show, I knew I needed to talk to them first. Who knows Whoopi may run for President and I’ll be her Vice President…now that will really stir it up!”
