The legendary Hank Williams, Jr. and southern rock royalty, Kid Rock, got together and tore up the stage with their fantastic duet version of Hank's timeless hit, "Family Tradition"! 

"Family Tradition" was both written and recorded by Hank Williams, Jr. and is perhaps his signature song. Released in 1979, it peaked at #4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singleschart. This popular song is known to be Williams' statement of rebellion. He talks about how drugs and alcohol are a way of life when it comes to his family, and even though he's been disowned by his "kinfolk", he's not going to change how he is because it's "family tradition".

The two stars performed this song like great friends, answering each other and just having a great time. While Hank Jr. performed the chorus, Kid Rock echoed with the popular words that over the years have become a tradition when the chorus is sung: "Why do ya drink?" "To get drunk!"

Y'all have to check out this entertaining performance!

LYRICS BELOW

Country music singers have been a real close family,
But lately some of my kinfolks have disowned a few others and me.
I guess it's because I kind of changed my direction.
Lord I guess I went and broke their family tradition.

They get on me and want to know Hank why do you drink? Why do you roll smoke?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?
Over and over everybody makes my predictions.
So if I get stoned, I'm just carrying on an old family tradition.

I am very proud of my daddy's name
All though his kind of music and mine ain't exactly the same.
Stop and think it over. Put yourself in my position.
If I get stoned and sing all night long it's a family tradition.

So don't ask me, Hank why do you drink? Hank, why do you roll smoke?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?
If I'm down in a honky-tonk some ole slick's trying to give me friction.
I said leave me alone I'm singing all night long it's a family tradition.

Lord I have loved some ladies and I have loved Jim Beam
And they both tried to kill me in 1973.
When that doctor asked me, Son how did you get in this condition?
I said, hey sawbones, I'm just carrying on an ole family tradition.

So don't ask me, Hank why do you drink? Hank, why do roll smoke?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?
Stop and think it over, try and put yourself in my unique position.
If I get stoned and sing all night long, it's a family tradition!
