Riley Green Delivered A Kick*ss Cover Of The Hank Williams Jr. Classic, “Family Tradition” Over The Weekend

Okay, I am HERE for this.

It looks like Riley Green has been practicing a few classics during his downtime off the road over the past year or so, and it’s everything I love about country music and more.

He’s back touring in the states where he can have live shows right now, and he did a completely kickass rendition of Hank Williams Jr.’s 1982 classic hit “Family Tradition” over the weekend… and I want to know where I can sign up to have it injected directly into my veins.

Known to do a solid cover or two at concerts as a regular part of his set list, including songs like “Dixieland Delight” and “Good Directions”, I hope this one’s going to become a part of his regular rotation now, too.

Maybe I just missed live music a little too much, but I think stuff like this is what we’ve all been wanting to see since COVID started last year and understandably put in-person events on hold for a while… I mean, just listen to that crowd singing along in the background.

Even Hank Jr. himself seems excited to be back, because he recently sang the same song at a headlining show with Miranda Lambert, Kid Rock and his son Sam Williams at Billy Bob’s Texas recently.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to have videos like this popping up again.

Riley covered it at a show in Gainesville, Florida, and it’s definitely the best thing you’ll watch all damn day:
