Getting dropped from ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” telecast doesn’t seem like it’s done much to tone down Hanks Williams Jr.
The controversial country crooner’s new album, “Old School, New Rules,” is out Tuesday, and judging by just a few lines from some of his new tunes, it sounds as if Williams is as feisty as ever.
Appearing on Fox News Channel’s morning show, “Fox and Friends,” in October, Williams said of a golf game in which

Williams confirmed later in the interview that he was indeed comparing Obama to the late Nazi leader, telling anchor Gretchen Carlson, “I’m telling you like it is.”
A press release about his new album includes a track list and some lyrics from the record. In one ditty, Williams sings, “Barack, pack your bags, head to Chicago … take your teleprompter with you.”
He also sings, “Don’t tread on me … political correctness has run its course.”
Some song titles include: “We Don’t Apologize for America,” “Stock Market Blues,” “Takin’ Back the Country” and “Cow Turd Blues” (although we have no clue whether that last one’s political in nature or just has a silly-sounding name).
