“Merle is one-of-a-kind,” says Hank Williams Jr. “His music resonates with fans just like mine does. Making this song was simple, it maybe took two takes. Then we spent the rest of the time laughing and telling old road stories. Merle and I are for the everyday working man and that’s something we have in common.”

Hank Williams Jr. likes NASCAR and many NASCAR fans like Hank Williams Jr. Well known for his "Are You Ready for Some Football" theme song to Monday Night Football, Williams performed a pre-race concert at Bristol Motor Speedway this summer and has performed at many NASCAR events.
The country singer discusses his career, country music and the possibility of writing an introductory song for NASCAR in this week's Six Pack of Pop.
Q: If you were to write an introductory song for NASCAR, what might it be like?
A: If I did that for you, then I would be doing that for free. I get paid to write songs; ABC and ESPN paid me well for "Are You Ready for Some Football!" The BIG thing is that I own that song, so now that I own it and ESPN is not using it, I could easily turn it into "Are You Ready for Some NASCAR, It's a Sunday afternoon party!" ... maybe there is something there.
