Why did Hank Jr. Walk Out on Jason Aldean?


I would have really loved to see Hank Jr. and Jason Aldean sing together, but we're not going to see it.  At least not on the CMT Artist of the Year special.  Why did Hank Jr. walk out in the middle of the taping?  Read the whole story below... 

According to Hank Williams Jr. was slated to perform “Tattoos on This Town” with Jason Aldean at last nights taping of CMT Artists of the Year. After singing only one verse with Jason there was a pause in taping and Hank Jr. walked off stage not to return.

Rob Lowe, who hosted the event, re-introducted Jason and retaped the performance without Hank Jr.

Hank Jr. issued the following statement to, through his publicist:

“I’ve heard people mess up my songs and screw up Daddy’s songs. 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.”

CMT Artists of the Year airs at 9 p.m. ET Dec. 13.
