Hank Williams Jr. Fires Back At ESPN With New Song

Our Country

Hey, if Taylor Swift can write songs calling out ex-boyfriends, it's only to be expected Hank Williams Jr. can do the same...about ex-business partners, that is. After having his longtime Monday Night Football theme song cut by ESPN due to controversial comments on a Fox talk show, Williams is exacting revenge in the form of a song.

The tune, titled "I'll Keep My...," was written on Friday and Williams plans to release it this week on iTunes. Reportedly, the song discusses how the U.S. is "going down the drain" and is "socialist"--and also includes the verse, "So Fox & Friends wanna put me down/Ask for my opinion/Twist it all around...Well two can play that gotcha game you'll see."

He's also put up a new item for sale on his official site: "Hank Jr. For President" t-shirts.

Williams is scheduled to make appearances on Hannity and The View on Tuesday to discuss what started all of this in the first place--his comment last Monday on Fox & Friends comparing President Obama and John Boehner golfing together to Adolph Hitler and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doing the same.

The View's liberal-minded Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar were unlikely supporters of Williams last week, triggering him to comment, "Whoopi and Joy understood what I was saying...Who knows Whoopi may run for President and I'll be her Vice President...now that will really stir it up!" Indeed, Bocephus. Indeed.

Are you itching to hear Hank Jr.'s scathing new song, or do you wish he'd drop all of this, already? Be sure to let me know your thoughts.
