“That’s How They Do It In Dixie: The Essential Collection.”
“Old School, New Rules” is the first album on Hank Williams,
Jr.’s new label imprint, Bocephus Records, licensed to Blaster Records
with distribution by Warner Music Nashville.
“Bocephus delivered a musically brilliant album,” says Tom
Porter, CEO of Blaster Entertainment, “Our team worked really hard to
build awareness and the audience responded. All the pieces came together
for us and we couldn’t be more pleased to celebrate this with Hank.”
“I’ve got some of the best, most loyal fans out there,” say Hank
Williams, Jr. “This album was for them; it was their voices that
encouraged the writing process for me.”

About Hank Williams, Jr.:
With more than 70 albums to his credit, sales of 55 million records,
countless awards including 5-time Entertainer of the Year awards (ACM
& CMA), BMI Icon Award, a Grammy, and most recently in 2009 the
Academy of Country Music “Pioneer Award,” Williams is a living legend.
His discography chronicles a bold profile of growth from adored
offspring of a legendary father, to titan of the modern country rock
movement in his own right. For two decades, America came to its
collective feet each fall Monday night when this larger than life
superman of a musician looked into the camera and unleashed the national
anthem for viewers of Monday Night Football – ‘Are You Ready for Some
Football?’ Those simple words have won Williams an entirely new
generation of fans and given him the distinction of being the first
country performer to ever win an Emmy.
