Hank Williams Jr. has officially signed to Nash Icon Records, a joint venture label between the Big Machine Label Group (BMLG) and Cumulus. He joins the distinct voices of Reba, Martina McBride and Ronnie Dunn on the label which launched in 2014.

“Country music singers have always been a real close family and today the Nash Icon family has added me as a new member. I have done shows with Ronnie Dunn, recorded a hit record with Reba and absolutely love Martina McBride,” said Williams. “I am writing songs better than ever and am signed with a label that is already making history … it’s an exciting time!”

Williams is working on his 37th album, which is expected to be released later this year. It is the follow up to his 2012 Old School New Rules release. He also has a rigorous tour schedule through the fall. See dates at hankjr.com.

“We are all absolutely thrilled and honored to have Hank Jr. join us at Nash Icon Records. His passion for making new music has never been stronger and creatively he is on fire!” exclaimed Nash Icon Records General Manager Jim Weatherson.

Williams’ five-decade career has spawned 70 million albums sold worldwide. He has been named ACM Entertainer of the Year, CMA Entertainer of the Year and BMI Icon, in addition to winning a Grammy and being inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Already making an impact, Nash Icon Records scored its first No. 1 country album this month with Reba’s Love Somebody.
