Hank Williams, Jr. has the top selling independent album in the country with his new album, Old School, New Rules.  The new CD debuts at No.4 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart and No.12 on Billboard’s Top U.S. Albums chart.  This gives the country music legend the highest peak position of his career on the overall chart, surpassing his previous high of No.16 achieved by 1964’s Your Cheatin’ Heart and the 2006 compilation, That’s How They Do It In Dixie: The Essential Collection.
Old School, New Rules is the first album on Hank Williams, Jr.’s new label imprint, Bocephus Records, licensed to Blaster Records with distribution by Warner Music Nashville.
“Bocephus delivered a musically brilliant album,” says Tom Porter, CEO of Blaster Entertainment, “Our team worked really hard to build awareness and the audience responded. All the pieces came together for us and we couldn’t be more pleased to celebrate this with Hank.”

“I’ve got some of the best, most loyal fans out there,” say Hank Williams, Jr. “This album was for them; it was their voices that encouraged the writing process for me.”
