Hank Williams Jr. is back in the country game with a new single. The lead track off his upcoming album It’s About Time is a cover of Neil Young‘s “Are You Ready for the Country”, and features Eric Church. Waylon Jennings also recorded this song on his 1976 album of the same name.
Bocephus’ roadhouse-ready, rock-driven version is sure to please his core fans. It’s got chunky guitar riffs, fiddle, backing vocals from a gospel choir, and fellow country outlaw Eric Church. Overall, it doesn’t bring anything new to the table, and it sounds a lot like the same old same old. Let’s hope the rest of the album brings some fresher material to the table.
