article imageReview: Hank Williams Jr. back with new country album 'It's About Time' Special

Veteran country music star Hank Williams Jr. is back with his latest studio effort "It's About Time," and it is a solid release.
It opens with the mid-tempo "Are You Ready For The Country," where Hank Jr. collaborates with country star Eric Church. It is followed by the upbeat and fun "Club U.S.A.," which has a Brooks & Dunn vibe to it.
"God Fearin' Man" is an autobiographical tune for "Bocephus" and "Those Days Are Gone" is traditional-sounding and nostalgic. In "Dress Like An Icon," he makes an allusion to Steve McQueen and B.B. King. "God And Guns" has a country outlaw feel to it, while "Just Call Me Hank" is another tune where he pays homage to his roots.
In the soothing "Mental Revenge," he showcases his soft side, with its witty lyrics. The title track "It's About Time" is another keeper. He shows his fans how to have a good time on "The Party's On," and the album closes with "Wrapped Up, Tangled Up In Jesus (God's Got It)" and "Born To Boogie," the latter of which is a collaboration with such modern country artists as Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore and Brad Paisley.
