Hank Williams Jr. in fifth Super Bowl appearance

Wednesday, January 25, 2006 – Hank Williams Jr., 4-time Emmy award winner for his rendition of Monday Night Football's "Are You Ready For Some Football?", will make his fifth Super Bowl appearance in his 16-year run with ABC Sports. Hank Jr. was in Los Angeles, Tuesday filming the opening intro to the 2006 Super Bowl face-off between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks.

"Not many people can say they have performed during five Super Bowl openings," he said. "I am so happy to have been part of the ABC family since 1989, and with my love for football, this was a win-win partnership."

Williams will attend the Super Bowl in Detroit. "My rowdy rebel son Kid Rock and I will be making some noise in Michigan...everyone should be listening."

The irony of the political focus is that Bocephus uses the image of the "working man" to serve as the choir for his sermon, much like Bruce Springsteen's magnificent ...
Conjuring his trademark Southern rock and country blues sound, Hank Williams Jr. mines areas familiar to longtime fans. In the process, he delivers an album that boasts characteristic poignancy and drive, but occasionally falls flat. The most disappointing moments occur when the 60-year-old Williams proves too winded to convincingly chant the rapid-fire lyrics of Farm Song. The vigilantism implied in Sounds Like Justice plays out distastefully and his southern rocker about a sexy gold-digger, High ...
