Striking back: Hank Williams Jr. writes new song about 'Fox & Friends,' ESPN, heads to TV
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ' Hank Williams Jr. will have his say.
Williams has cut new song "I'll Keep My ...," calling out "Fox & Friends" and ESPN after an interview last week on the show led to the end of his association with the sports network and "Monday Night Football," long home to his "Are you ready for some football?" theme.
He's also scheduled to appear on "The View" and "Hannity" on Tuesday to discuss the uproar that sprung up after he made an analogy that President Barack Obama and House Speaker Rep. John Boehner golfing together would be like Nazi leader Adolph Hitler and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu playing a round.
ESPN decided to pull Williams' "All My Rowdy Friends" intro from last Monday's "MNF" telecast and the move became permanent Thursday.
