Hank Williams Jr. provided Country Radio Seminar (CRS) with a performance unlike any seen this past week.

At an intimate, invitation-only show at the Country Music Hall of Fame, Thursday night, Feb. 16, Hank played classic hits and some new tunes, and regaled the audience with some of his favorite stories. And he did it completely solo, playing only acoustic guitars and piano. Kix Brooks introduced Hank by raving, "I admire him on so many levels. This is really cool."

Hank Jr. took the stage and announced, "I'm gonna do mainly what I want to," and certainly kept that promise. During the show, Hank poked a little fun at the Country Radio Seminar with his "Hillbilly Seminar," a new tune that included the memorable lines, The world don't revolve around Kenny Chesney . . . don't revolve around Tim McGraw, provoking raucous laughter from the crowd. Hank then recalled, "When I was a kid, I thought Fats Domino was God," and proceeded to the piano where he played Domino's classic "Blueberry Hill," and rocked the house with Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls of Fire." Among those cheering on Hank from the audience were Mark Wills, rising young star Trent Tomlinson and Collin Raye.
