A beautiful thing happened in Tampa over the weekend, after a Hank Williams Jr. show at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
It was around 2AM on the morning of Saturday, May 20, and the vibe at a local Waffle House was ... well, lively If there was ever any doubt that the Hank Jr. love still going strong, let this video remove that doubt:
The restaurant was packed house following Hank Jr.'s concert, resulting in a beautiful singalong rendition of his classic hit, "Family Tradition". In the video above, you can see people from all age groups and seemingly all walks of life partaking in a late-night meal, while all at the same time belting out the Hank Jr. song.
It was a special moment, where everyone was getting along and having a great time together. Hank Williams Jr. is on a long and lengthy tour currently, which is taking him all across America. He is promoting his current album, Rich White Honky Blues, released in June of 2022.
While promoting this new album, the star even stopped by the Taste of Country Nights studio in Nashville, and we spoke about life, love, music, Johnny Cash and cigars, among other things. He revealed to us the true inspiration behind the album title and who gave him the idea for it.
With Hank Jr. on tour for the foreseeable future, and a younger generation learning about his music on social media, don't be surprised if more and more of these videos pop up.
