Hank Williams Jr. Offers ‘Bocephus Bailout’
Between scrambling to file taxes before the April 15 deadline and the endless news stories detailing the struggling U.S. economy, Americans just need a break. Hank Williams Jr. wants to offer his own kind of help.
The country icon took to the airwaves to unveil an economic stimulus plan of his own on Wednesday, with an appearance on the early-morning show 'Fox & Friends.' Hank Jr. performed his new single, 'Red White and Pink-Slip Blues,' and also announced plans for what he calls the Bocephus Bailout Package. But he won't be taking details of this bailout before Congress; it's actually a contest giving one lucky fan the opportunity to become an honorary member of the singer's crew for a day, along with several other enticing "earmarks."
In addition to crew-member status, the winner of the Bocephus Bailout Package will take home $1,000 in spending money, plus an additional $1,500 toward travel and hotel expenses to the concert location, along with two premium seats to the show and a meet-and-greet with Hank Jr. backstage.
But the stimulus doesn't stop there. The package also includes a limited-edition collector's tin containing three of Hank Jr.'s classic CDs -- 'Family Tradition,' 'Whiskey Bent & Hell Bound' and 'The Pressure Is On.' There's also a limited-edition 'Monday Night Football' guitar and an autographed copy of the 'Red White and Pink-Slip Blues' single.
