When you think of Hank Williams Jr., the word “rowdy” is one of the first to come to mind. After years in the business, Hank Jr. has earned the reputation as a skilled entertainer, due in large part to the uncontrollable enthusiasm he exhibits on stage.

Hank Jr. also writes plenty of songs that give him the opportunity to get a little wild when he sings. One of those songs is “Feelin’ Better,” which was included on his album The New South: Original Classic Hits, Vol. 2.

Released in 1977, “Feelin’ Better” was the only single Hank Jr. generated from the New South Album. Following its release, the song reached the 38th spot on the country chart in the U.S. and claimed the 40th position on the Canadian country chart.

Filled with detailed lyrics,”Feelin’ Better” celebrates the release that can be found in life on the road. As Hank Jr. sings, he feels better now that he has left his sadness behind and is able to tour again:

“Rocked ’em in Raleigh knocked ’em out in Knoxville just couldn’t do no wrong. People went wild and the band said child better keep on playin’ your songs. I’m feelin’ better now that I’m back on the road…”

After all this time, Hank Jr. still knows how to get a crowd riled up, and singing “Feelin’ Better” is one of the ways to do it. He included the song as part of his set during a 2016 concert in Nashville, and his fans seemed to love every minute of it.

Hank Jr. seemed to be enjoying himself as well, as he sang and strummed along on his acoustic guitar with unbridled energy. “Feelin’ Better” is a song that you have to work hard to sell, and Hank Jr. certainly didn’t disappoint.
