Country music star Hank Williams Jr. treated fans to an exceptionally upbeat performance when he broke into a cover of one of country music’s biggest hits! The crowd was nothing short of eager when the iconic intro to “White Lightening” flooded the venue and sent them swarming with excitement! 

Sporting his black cowboy hat and stellar shades, Williams opened up his electrifying performance with the riveting lyrics, “Well, in the North of Carolina, way back in the hills/ Me and my old pappy and he had him a still/ He brewed white lightnin’ till the sun went down/ And then you’d fill him a jug and he’d pass it around.” As the song progressed, the singer thrilled the crowd as he imitated original singer George Jones’ iconic “Ssh, white lightening”! 

The song was previously released in 1959 by Jones, serving as the first no. 1 hit of his career! Although covered by a variety of artists inspired by the riveting number, Jones’ version has continued to set the bar at quite a high expectation. With that said, we think Williams did a killer job of making George proud and giving his fans one moment they’ll never forget!
