Justin Timberlake Stops By A Hank Williams Jr. Show! Justin Timberlake along with his best friend/WilliamRast business partner Trace Ayala were hanging out backstage in Mississippi last Friday night with country music legend Hank Williams Jr. Williams was in town doing a concert in Southhaven, Mississippi, where Timberlake along with fiancee Jessica Biel, mother Lynn Timberlake, and buddy Ayala all took in a night of some ‘Rockin’ Randal.’ “What a great guy! Justin is a friend of my rebel son Kid Rock. He sure is a good country boy. We talked about girls, guitars, turkey hunting, going on cruises and how much we hate them, even though Bobby (Kid Rock) is on one right now and loving it, ugh! Hell, Justin and I even taking about recording a blues song sometime.” -Hank Williams Jr.
Hank Williams Jr. And Jamey Johnson Perform At The AMP In Fayetteville, Ar. This past Saturday (April 28) Hank Williams Jr. and Jamey Johnson performed at The AMP in Fayetteville, AR. The show was part of the Taking Back The Country tour and made for a perfect start to my 2012 spring/summer concert season! This year the AMP was moved to a larger area and good thing, because these two country music outlaws filled the space with more than excited fans! As always, Johnson killed it! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, he is one talented son-of-a-gun. Each time I see him perform he proves to me that I have good taste! He sings his songs with such ease and confidence, that it makes fans angry when his set list reaches the end. Williams took the stage and proved to everyone (even though he needs to prove nothing) that he’s still got it! Performing all of his classic Bocephus tunes and throwing a few surprises in there, he had the crowd going insane! My favorite part of the night was hearing fans shouting how many times they have seen the “Born To Boogie” star in concert. “This is my sixth time to see him,” a couple people said. Williams has probably got some of the most loyal fans out there, and it is a great thing to see their excitement and passion flow when they speak of him. For those of you who have the tour heading your way (Evansville, Dayton, Bossier City, Wichita, Cheyenne) get yourself a ticket! You are sure to have a great night that you’ll never forget, or maybe you will…depending on what you drink! This show has HaleighT’s stamp of approval with an overall grade of an A+!
