Hank Williams Jr. Pens New Song About ESPN, Fox
“America is going down the drain.”
The Hank Williams, Jr./ESPN saga continues. After ESPN and Hank Jr. decided to end a decades-long partnership following comments he made on Fox & Friends about senior U.S. officials, the singer/songwriter decided to write a tune about it. Titled “I’ll Keep My . . . ,” the song calls out ESPN and Fox.
In the song, Hank Jr. contends that Fox & Friends twisted his words: So Fox & Friends wanna put me down / Ask for my opinion / Twist it all around, he sings. The verse ends with a promise: Well two can play that gotcha game, you’ll see.
In the song he also states that America is going down the drain, and encourages listeners to keep Fox & Friends and ESPN out of their homes. As previously reported, the partnership ended after Hank made an analogy that President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner golfing together was akin to Nazi leader Adolph Hitler and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu playing a round.
Hank Jr. is set to appear on The View on Oct. 11, with supporter Whoopi Goldberg. “Whoopi and Joy [Behar] understood what I was saying,” Hank Jr. says on his website. “After watching the clip of their show, I knew I needed to talk to them first. Who knows, Whoopi may run for President and I’ll be her Vice President . . . now that will really stir it up!”
