What’s the difference between a country boy and a city boy? If you guess it’s that one wears a cowboy hat or maybe that one rides a horse and the other a subway, you’re on your way to being right.

A Country Boy Through And Through

Hat or no hat, on the subway or highway, wearing boots or wingtips, Hank Williams Jr. is a country boy through and through.

Hank Jr., or Bocephus as his friends and fans call him, wrote and recorded “A Country Boy Can Survive” way back in 1981.

Bocephus Honored As A Giant

During a special CMT production honoring “The Giants” of the genre, Toby Keith had the honor of paying tribute to Hank Jr. by singing one of the country legend’s best known hits.

Based on his reaction, no one could’ve done it better. A grateful Bocephus nodded in approval, saluting Toby before moving up on stage to confirm his appreciation with a brotherly hug.

Signature Song

This signature song of the celebrated son of the legendary Hank Williams was written as a reminder to others of the understated and often overlooked beauty of the everyday life of country folks.

An Incredible Testimony

Can you imagine being honored by a country star singing a song that you wrote and previously recorded?  It’s an incredible testimony to the talent of the one, the only Hank Williams Jr.
