Hank Williams Jr. Books Shows With Lynyrd Skynyrd, Aaron Lewis
The new tour kicks off April 20 at the PGA Tour Champions Bass Pro Shop’s Legends of Golf Tournament in Montana and continues through September, with 20 dates that take the country star to major cities like New Orleans, La., Raleigh, N.C. and more. Williams Jr. will bring country rocker Aaron Lewis out on the road with him as a supporting act, with Lee Brice appearing as a special guest in Atlanta, Ga.
The tour also finds the singer co-headlining dates with legendary rock group Lynyrd Skynyrd at places like the Dam Music Fest in Kansas, as well as in New York, New Jersey and other locations.
Bocephus announced a handful of tour dates in early 2017.
It’s About Time debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart after its 2016 release, giving the country star his highest ranking on the chart since his 1990 album, Lone Wolf. The new release also cracked the Top 15 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 chart. It includes the single “Are You Ready for the Country” featuring Eric Church — a cover of the 1972 song originally by Neil Young.
