Own Business

Hank Williams Jr. teamed up with Tom Petty, Willie Nelson, Reba McEntire, and the evangelist Reverend Ike to sing this amazing classic “Mind Your Own Business.”

The all-star cast sings the catchy honky tonk classic. It is definitely a strong closing track to his 1986 album “Montana Cafe”. The track is lathered well with what Williams Jr. know how to to do best. He masterfully blends elements of rock, country, and a hefty dose of blues. But he still maintained a few nods to his father’s sound, with twangy electric guitars and a noticeable bayou rhythm. “Mind Your Own Business” is catchy and straight to the point. It is such a good track, it made it to Number one and it spent there for over two weeks!

Take a good listen here!

Like Father Like Son

In the first place, Williams Jr. was hot on the record in the 80’s. He absolutely dominated country music with several platinum and gold-selling albums. His 1979 album “Family Tradition” started the trend, and everything snowballed from there. He quickly proved to everybody that he had his own star, and he wasn’t just a shadow of his father’s equally successful career. 

But, covering “Mind Your Own Business” isn’t without expectation. Williams Jr. was well aware of the pressure that he would have when he covers his father’s song. In the first place, Hank Williams Sr. originally released the song in 1949. His version is the embodiment of real old-style country, compared to that of his junior. It went on to become a Top 10 hit on the Billboard Country and Western Best Seller chart later that year.

Come take a listen!

All in all, the two versions sound drastically different from each other but it is safe to say that both renditions are great. And truly, the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree
