Hank Williams, Jr. sings loud and proud at recent NRA gathering

Country legend Hank Williams, Jr loves guns — and the NRA.

“I have a conceal and carry permit baby since 1971,” he yelled to the crowd gathered at the 5TH Annual NRA Country Jam, presented by Bushnell with Folds of Honor in Nashville on April 10. “Bocefus is packing!”

The night was capped off with presentations by Folds of Honor and Lone Survivor Foundation in recognition of our military men and women and their families.

Williams Jr. wasn’t the only one declaring his love for the NRA during the festival, which gave tens of thousands of fans more than 25 hours of free concert acts from country favorites such as Colt Ford, Sunny Sweeney, Tyler Farr, Josh Thompson and Bucky Covington.

To say Nashville was rocking would be the understatement of the year.

Taking place during the 144th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits presented by MidwayUSA, the festival was topped off with the sold out concert “NRA Presents ALAN JACKSON’s 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR” with special guests Jeff Foxworthy and Jon Pardi.
