“My good gal left and I can’t stand the pain / When she walked out my teardrops fell like rain / So set-em up joe and give me some dimes / I’ve got an appointment with a friend of mine / I’m gonna get drunk and play Hank Williams all night long,” Hank Jr. kicked off the song.
Brad took to social media to share the performance with a stimple statement. “The LEGEND! @hankjr,” he wrote in the post.
Brad’s next stop will take him to Calgary, Canada for the Calgary Stampede on July 13, while Hank Jr. will make his way to Tulsa, Oklahoma at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casno on July 20.
