Hank Williams, Jr. turned 70 years old today on May 26th. Having been put on the road when he was just 8 years old, a young Hank Jr. was destined for a life of both high times and hardships. With many making predictions regarding his career throughout much of his early life, some insisted that he would never amount to much. --- But, here we are today 6 decades later, and the man nicknamed Rockin' Randall Bocephus aka Thunderhead Hawkins has become a household name in country music who still sells out in every city he performs.
From surviving a 540 foot fall down Ajax Mountain, --- to forging a path all his own upon stepping out from behind the shadows of his legendary father, --- or puttin' asses in seats when filling some of the most iconic stadiums, arenas and amphitheaters around the world when performing to thousands of adoring fans. Hank would ultimately go on to prove that a country boy can, in fact, survive. Here's to ya, Bocephus! 🥃
