Today, Hank Williams Jr.’s Nash Icon Records album It’s About Time, achieved the highest studio album peak position of his career with a No. 2 album on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and broke the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200, landing at No. 8.
Hank Jr. and his new tour mate, Chris Stapleton, who have the No. 2 and No.1 Billboard Top Country Albums, respectively, will co-headline an eight-date tour of amphitheaters across the American south and mid-west.
The success of It’s About Time surpasses Hank Jr.’s 2012 release of Old School, New Rules, which, at the time, was his highest debut, charting at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and No. 12 on Billboard’s Top 200.
“I really have some of the best, most loyal fans out there. I’m thankful they went out and spent their hard-earned money,” Hank, Jr. said. “We’ve got a whole slate of dates coming up and I can’t wait to rock with them!”
Hank Jr. just wrapped up appearances on Audience All Access on AT&T’s Audience Network, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, CBS This Morning, RFD Rural Evening News, and a performance with Whoopi Goldberg on The View.
The country icon will continue promotional efforts for his 37th album with an exclusive acoustic performance on SiriusXM’s Prime Country, which will include new It’s About Time tracks along with Bocephus and Hank Williams classics.
