Bocephus takes fans for a journey like no other in this rare 1977 performance of a ballad that will speak straight to the soul of anyone who has ever felt lonely before…
Appearing on an episode of the hit television variety show Pop! Goes The Country, Hank Williams Jr. showed up and stole the show in typical Bocephus fashion – but this time it wasn’t with a rowdy party tune! Instead, Hank Jr. melted the hearts of the audience with a tender ballad that tells the story of a man wishing for just one thing: a phone call from his sweetheart.
Featured on his 1977 album, One Night Stands, this gripping classic country ballad was part of his repertoire right before his career skyrocketed to even greater heights with “Whisky Bent and Hell Bound”, but needless to say – “Honey, Won’t You Call Me” was a hit in its own right.
Soaring through this twangy, yet rock-infused tune, Hank Jr. shows off his endless musical talent with this incredible live performance.
If you’ve always loved this song of his, or this is your first time hearing it – you certainly won’t be disappointed!
