Hank Williams III Goes Straight To Hell

NASHVILLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hank Williams III is going straight to hell on his upcoming CD and he couldn’t be prouder.

The country rebel is getting ready to release a two-CD set on Feb. 28 called Straight To Hell and says one disc is “done right and the other is done wrong.”

By that, Hank III means that the first disc is recorded with all the musicians that he “can’t afford to take on the road” and the other is one long track featuring his road band “doing everything you’re not supposed to do.”

But while Hank III calls it a “Jekyll and Hyde” release, he’s hoping it shows off both sides of his songwriting: the traditional country side and the side of him influenced by hardcore punk and metal.

He also hopes the CD will be enough of a success to ensure a major label release of Assjack, which is his punkiest album and, therefore, the most controversial.

But that may not be a bad thing. As he puts it, “I’ve already sold 10,000 copies of that album just at shows.”
