The Normal CornBelters, presented by Illinois Corn Farmers, are excited to announce another musical act for the 2016 DuPont/Pioneer Summer Concert Series. Country music artist Hank Williams Jr. will be taking The Corn Crib stage on Friday, June 17 at 7 pm. Gates for the concert will open an hour and a half before the show.

Williams, the former opening act for ESPN’s Monday Night Football, has strung together numerous hits throughout his extensive musical career. He released 21 albums between 1979 and 1992 that were all at least certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Williams has earned the top spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs ten times, with his hit single “All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)” (1981) also solidifying the No. 1 spot on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart. In 1984, he released “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight” that would later be reworked to fit the opening music video for Monday Night Football in 1989.

In 1987 and 1988, Williams earned consecutive awards as the Entertainer of the Year by the Country Music Association. He won the same award from 1987-1989 from the Academy of Country Music. In 1991, Williams became the first country artist to win an Emmy award. His performance on Monday Night Football was awarded best composed theme; his first of four consecutive Emmy awards.
