Just when you thought no worthwhile musician
would ever support the Republican Party, Hank Williams Jr. comes a courtin'.
After consulting with Tennessee political veterans ex-Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) and Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), the award-winning country singer famous for the hits "Family Tradition" and "Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound" is positioning himself for a Senate run in 2012, according to Townhall.com
Mr. Williams, born Randall Hank Williams in 1949 to mother Audrey and father Hank--who nicknamed his son Bocephus for some reason--has long been a supporter of Republican causes, igniting controversy
at a Colorado rally earlier this month with his statement that President-elect Barack Obama is "not real crazy about" the national anthem.
The main question, however--if Hank Williams Jr. does embark on a grueling Senate campaign through Tennessee--is the question of who will sing the theme song for ESPN's "Monday Night Football?"
I'm thinking Mike Huckabee
