Watch Hank Williams Jr. Fans take over Tampa Waffle House.

Hank William played a packed show Friday at the Mid-Florida Credit Union Amphitheater.  After the show, a ton of fans went to the Waffle House for some late night food.  It was obvious that many were at the show, so someone busted out singing Hank’s big hit “Family Tradition”.  That sparked everyone in the restaurant to start singing along.

The video was posted on TikTok around 2am after the concert.  It seems that late night cravings and Hank Williams Jr. go together.

About Hank Williams Jr.

Randall Hank Williams, born in Shreveport, Louisiana is the only son of Audrey Williams and country music superstar Hank Williams. His father nicknamed him “Bocephus” after comedian and Grand Ole Opry Star Rod Brasfield’s ventriloquist dummy. Williams would often close shows by saying, “Don’t worry, Bocephus, I’m coming home.”

After his father passed away, his mother knew he was going to follow in his fathers footsteps and at age 8, he began playing shows.

By 1960 he was playing the Grand Ole Opry, singing his father’s hit, “Lovesick Blues.”  In 1969. Hank, Jr. and Johnny Cash join together for a sold-out show at Detroit’s Cobo Hall, playing the highest-grossing country music show to date.  Hank, Jr.’s album: Songs My Father Left Me becomes his first top-charting country album.
