For most artists, their number one hits are generally their most well-known songs. However, such is not always the case. It certainly isn't when it comes to country music icon Hank Williams Jr. 

Although Hank is no stranger to earning number one hits, one of his signature songs never reached the top spot on the chart. That song was "A Country Boy Can Survive," which was released in January 1982.

While "A Country Boy Can Survive" didn't hit number one, it got as close as it could get. It reached the second spot on both the U.S. Hot Country Songs chart and the Canadian RPM Country tracks chart.

Despite the fact that it never hit number one, "A Country Boy Can Survive" is the best-selling single of Hank's entire career. The song was was certified Platinum by the RIAA in February 2016, meaning it has sold a total of one million units. It is Hank's only single to earn Platinum status.

As you would expect, "A Country Boy Can Survive" is a fan-favorite part of Hank's shows. He decided to switch things up a bit for his performance of the song at a concert in 2016, and the crowd couldn't get enough.

Leaving his band behind, Hank sat up at the front of the stage with his acoustic guitar in hand. Hank plowed through his signature song with nothing but the sound of his own guitar and the enthusiastic singing of the crowd to back him up.

Even if you've heard "A Country Boy Can Survive" a thousand times before, this is one performance you just can't resist. Go ahead and check it out below! Hank starts singing around the 3:25 mark.
