Hank Williams, Jr. Launching ‘Loud and Rowdy’ Radio Show
Conservative country star Hank Williams, Jr. is getting his own radio show just in time to weigh in on the presidential elections. The outspokenly gun-loving, liberal-hating singer is getting set to produce three two-hour radio shows that are slated to air in the weeks before Election Day.
Titled 'Loud and Rowdy,' the radio specials will feature news, politics, music, and Williams "speaking his mind," a spokeswoman for the singer tells the Washington Times. Williams is apparently offering the program free to any station that wants to air it in an effort to get his message out to voters prior to the upcoming presidential election.
There's no word so far as to the actual content of the shows, but it's probably safe to assume Williams won't be coming out in support of President Obama, whom he has attacked repeatedly in interviews and onstage at his concerts for his belief that the president is a secret Muslim who is plotting against America.
"I mean, the guy is the worst,” Williams said in an interview in July. “Giveaway programs, hates America in the first place, forget about the flag ... You know, we’ve got a President that does a call to the Quran or Mecca or whatever.”
Williams' new album 'Old School, New Rules' features a number of songs inspired by the now-infamous incident in which his music was pulled from ‘Monday Night Football’ after he went on ‘Fox & Friends’ and compared the president to Hitler. The singer has continued to express similar opinions from the stage at several recent concerts. “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!” he said during an Aug. 17 performance at the Iowa State Fair.
The first of three installments of 'Loud and Rowdy' is scheduled to be ready by this weekend.
