Country Boy Hank Williams, Jr. shows he can survive and thrive as he officially signed to Nash Icon Records, a joint venture label between Big Machine Label Group (BMLG) and Cumulus. Hank’s fellow icons, Reba, Martina McBride and Ronnie Dunn, are also on the label which launched in 2014. These four artists combined have sold over 186 million albums worldwide.
Official quote from Hank Williams, Jr.:
Country music singers have always been a real close family and today the Nash Icon family has added me as a new member. I have done shows with Ronnie Dunn, recorded a hit record with Reba and absolutely love Martina McBride, I am writing songs better than ever and am signed with a label that is already making history … it’s an exciting time!
Following up his 2012 OLD SCHOOL NEW RULES release, Hank will record his 37th album on Nash Icon Records with music expected later this year. His five-decade career continues to add accolades to an extremely impressive resume, which has spawned 70 million albums sold worldwide, 20 gold albums, six platinum albums and 13 chart-topping albums. Hank has been named ACM Entertainer of the Year, CMA Entertainer of the Year and BMI Icon in addition to winning a GRAMMY and being inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Hank isn’t slowing down with a rigorous tour schedule that has him entertaining fans on the road throughout the fall.
