Hank Williams Jr. Tells ‘Fox & Friends’ and ESPN, ‘I’ll Keep My …”
The Obama-Hitler comparison made on ‘Fox & Friends’ by Hank Williams Jr. a while back forced ESPN to sack the singer’s opening theme song from Monday Night Football.
Now, according to sources who spoke with the Associated Press, the 62-year-old has fired back at both ESPN and ‘Fox & Friends’ in a new song titled ‘I’ll Keep My …,’ which he recorded in a Nashville studio on Friday.
“So Fox ‘n Friends wanna put me down/Ask for my opinion/Twist it all around. Well two can play that gotcha game you’ll see,” Williams sings in the tune, available for download on Tuesday from iTunes.
Many figures on both political sides came to the country star’s defense, including Whoopi Goldberg and Sarah Palin, saying that ESPN breached Williams’ freedom of speech. Williams will appear on ‘The View’ and ‘Hannity’ this Tuesday to further the debate.
Here’s the segment that started it all.
