Hank Williams Jr. is returning this fall to kick off “Monday Night Football!”
Six years after being dismissed from “Monday Night Football,” country artist Hank Williams Jr. will return to welcome all his rowdy friends as part of the game’s opening.
ESPN tweeted Monday (June 5), “Are you ready for some football? After six years, Hank and all his rowdy friends are back on Monday night.”
Williams’ “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight” opened “Monday Night Football” from 1989 – 2011. In 2011, Williams was abruptly let go from the game’s coverage after he made controversial remarks about President Barack Obama.
Our own beloved Philadelphia Eagles will appear on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” twice during the 2017 season. They will host their division rival Washington Redskins on October 23 and then the Oakland Raiders on Christmas Day.
