Hank Williams, Jr. walked off of stage during a taped performance of “Tattoos on This Town” with Jason Aldean Tuesday night, according to The taping was of CMT Artists of the Year.  Apparently, Hank was having a hard time tithe the first verse.  His publicist issued a statement saying, “I was here to honor Jason, a kid I really like.  When I walked out there, it didn’t feel right, it didn’t sound right.  I didn’t want to disrespect him.”  The CMT Artists of the Year is set to air December 13th at 9pm.


A Davidson County judge decided yesterday that Tim McGraw can in fact record for another label, other than Curb Records.  McGraw believed he had fulfilled his contract with Curb.  The label filed a temporary injunction request in an attempt to prevent him from recording with anyone else.  However, he is now free to do so.  A jury trail on the breach of contract lawsuit is scheduled for July.  Until then, we can expect some music from Tim.

Here’s what Tim had to say about writing great country music:
