It’s no longer Hank Williams Jr. to you, good sir. It’s Country Music Hall of Famer Hank Williams Jr., who will be taking his show out on tour in 2023 for select dates, and bringing Old Crow Medicine Show along with him.
Hank Jr. is not one for touring very much these days. He’d rather spend his time in a deer blind or out on a dock as opposed to doing just about anything else. But he’s always good for a couple of weeks of tour dates each year to keep the money rolling in, and to keep the fans happy. We already knew he was headlining Under The Big Sky Fest in his old haunt of Montana this mid July. But on Tuesday (1-10), he dropped a slew of new tour dates for the upcoming year.
You know we’ll get a rockin’ show from Rockin’ Randall Hank, but a question a few Hank Jr. fans will have is if he will showcase any of the blues material that he recorded with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys on the 2022 album Rich White Honky Blues. Aside from a couple of secret shows he played at the American Legion Post 82 in Nashville, Hank Jr. did not tour behind the record at all.
We’ll have to see if a blues set makes its way into the mix, and the pairing with Old Crow Medicine Show makes for interesting conversation too.
Tickets go on sale Friday, January 13th via TicketBastard.
