Hank Williams Jr. Scores Milestone Hit With Eric Church Collaboration

(Webster) Hank Williams Jr. hit another milestone in his legendary career. His new single "Are You Ready for the Country" featuring Eric Church made history with it's chart debut.

The track, which comes from his forthcoming album "It's About Time" (Out January 15th), debuted at No. 58 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart giving Williams his 106th charted single of his career.

More significantly, the chart debut also gave the country star the distinction of joining the small elite of artist that scored chart his over six decades. Other artists on that list includes George Jones, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Eddy Arnold and Merle Haggard.

"It's surreal to stand back and take in the fact that Hank Williams, Jr. is on our artist roster," said Scott Borchetta, President/CEO Big Machine Label Group. "His music means so much to so many and he truly defined numerous moments in Country music over the last six decades. It is our true honor to be part of the next chapter as he continues to blaze his own unique musical trails. Message to ALL Hank Jr. fans - you are going to love this music - this is the good stuff."
