Hank Williams Jr. has charted for his sixth consecutive decade on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, due to his new single, “Are You Ready For the Country?”

The single is a duet with Eric Church and the first release from Williams’ first album for Nash Icon Records, a division of the Big Machine Label Group. The track enters at No. 58 on this week’s chart.

“It’s surreal to stand back and take in the fact that Hank Williams Jr. is on our artist roster,” said Scott Borchetta, President/CEO Big Machine Label Group. “His music means so much to so many and he truly defined numerous moments in country music over the last six decades. It is our true honor to be part of the next chapter as he continues to blaze his own unique musical trails. Message to ALL Hank Jr. fans–you are going to love this music–this is the good stuff.”

Nash Icon Records will release Williams’ album, It’s About Time, on Jan. 15. The country legend re-recorded “Born to Boogie” for the project with Brantley Gilbert and Justin Moore, with Brad Paisley on guitar. Williams’ debut album was released in 1964.
