About Hank Williams, Jr.
As his name makes clear, Hank Williams, Jr. is the son of country music legend (and Honky-Tonk deity) Hank Williams. Williams Jr. started off singing similar beer joint anthems before finding his own voice in the 1970s outlaw country realm. He can also be credited with taking the outlaw sound up a notch to deliver some gritty southern rock songs. Kid Rock cites Hank Williams Jr. as one of his most obvious influences, along with 2 Live Crew.
