Hank Williams, Jr. to Release ‘Old School, New Rules’ July 10
Hank Williams, Jr. has set a release date for his latest studio album, 'Old School, New Rules.' The new tunes -- the entertainer's first studio effort since his 2009 album '127 Rose Avenue' -- will hit store shelves and digital retailers on July 10.
“I’m excited about this new album,” Williams says of the project (quote via Webster & Associates PR). “I’m definitely ‘Old School,' and I am making music with ‘New Rules.' People know I’m gonna say exactly what I think and this album is exactly that.”
The 12-song collection, which is already available for pre-order, is the first project under the singer's own imprint label, Bocephus Records. The album includes two duets: 'I'm Gonna Get Drunk and Play Hank Williams' with Brad Paisley and 'I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink' with fellow country icon Merle Haggard.
Also included is the project's lead single, 'That's All Good,' which has already been serviced to country radio. An accompanying video clip will be released in the coming weeks.
To date, Williams has released 70 studio albums, selling more than 55 million copies. The legend has garnered an array of awards, including five Entertainer of the Year trophies and the Pioneer Award during the 2009 ACM Awards ceremony.
