On what was his rowdiest project yet, Hank Williams Jr. released an appropriately titled album in 1995 called Hog Wild. On it included the hit songs “I Ain’t Goin’ Peacefully”, “Wild Thing”, and “Tobacco Road”.
It also included the title track, which more or less explains exactly why everybody knows that Hank Jr. is “Hog Wild”. His reasoning is because he was “born at a party in a barn with a guitar strapped across [his] arm“. He also expresses that he enjoys playing his music loud, and is a country boy through and through.
The music video for “Hog Wild” is a true testament to the meaning of the song. Hank Jr. plays his guitar and sings the songs in different parts of a barn while a woman tells his fortune, which brings three attractive women out of thin air for a choreographed line dance.
Hank Jr.’s fortune teller also brings out his backwoods band consisting of the most redneck men you could ever imagine!
