It may seem like it's always glitz and glam for country music's biggest stars, but they didn't all come by their storytelling ability naturally. Sadly, many singers have encountered great tragedies in their lives, or have overcome sharp odds to get where they are today.
There was a great moment during Wednesday night's Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson show at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville that found Hank Williams Jr. and Kristofferson enthusiastically hugging one another after the younger artist had just finished singing "If You Don't Like Hank Williams," a Kristofferson-penned song from his Habits Old and New album from 1980.
Hank Williams, Jr. will officially be playing the CMA Music Festival this summer alongside Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church and Sam Hunt as part of the Friday night lineup on June 10, 2016.
Putting on a concert isn't cheap. Just ask anyone at the New York State Fair who puts together the entertainment lineup each year. $2.3 million was spent on Grandstand and Chevy Court acts for 2015 with Eric Church costing the most.
Hank Williams Jr. has been touring and playing live shows since he was 8 years old, so he has played just about everywhere. But there is one concert that he says, "really blew my mind." And when you find out what concert it was, it will probably blow yours too.
Fans filled nearly two city blocks to hear Hank Williams, Jr. sing his hits during the NRA Country Jam on Friday night (April 10). Lower Broadway in Nashville was shoulder-to-shoulder from 6th Ave. to Honky Tonk Central on 4th Ave., and the crowd arrived early.
