It's generally no secret around these parts that I'm not a football fan, but I am a Hank Jr. fan. That said, even though the event wasn't my bag, I was bummed to hear that his iconic theme song was nixed from Monday Night Football some years back. Now, confirming some rumors that were swirling, news just hit Rock Father HQ that ESPN’s Monday Night Football will feature the return of its iconic anthem this fall when Hank Williams Jr. kicks off the weekly Monday primetime game by asking NFL fans: “Are You Ready for Some Football?” Every Monday night during the 2017 NFL season, Williams will perform his hit song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night” with Florida Georgia Line and Jason Derulo.
The title pretty much says it all: With the release of his new video for "Last Time For Everything," Brad Paisley just unleashed the music video that I've wanted to make for myself since 1985. Indeed, the nostalgia factor is high, from the title sequence and bikes inspired by the Netflix Original Series Stranger Things, to the inclusion of walkie talkies, a boys-only clubhouse, a DeLorean, the Ghostbusters' Ecto-1, a SONY Walkman commercial, UFOs, dinosaurs, and appearance by my idol, David Hasselhoff and K.I.T.T. from the greatest television series of all-time, Knight Rider. Best of all, the action is all captured in beautiful VHS quality, dated October 26, 1985. But I have to ask... Brad, what's with the life preserver?

"A Physician-Musician on a Mission" - that's how Kenny Davin Fine quickly describes himself, the truth being that the singer-songwriter, medical doctor, and spiritual Journeyman may take the term "multi-hyphenate" to new and unexpected levels. With his new album, Brand New Road available now, he's got a collection of country, rock and blues ready to be heard, but also a message of "Finer Health" - not just for grownups, but for kids, too! To celebrate the new album, Dr. Fine has teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine to offer a special Prize Pack featuring his signature "Dr Blueberry" Organic Freeze-Dried Blueberries from The Organic Alternative, plus his new album and his previous children's record!
Let me tell you a story about the time a moose, a shark, a chicken and a purple alligator entered a barn somewhere in Canada...
That was the scene earlier this year when Alberta's Dan Davidson filmed a video for "Found," a single released in May that found an audience this summer, cracking the CMT Top 20 in Canada, and racking up over 320,000 global plays on Spotify. Nearly five months in, the $500 music video is still gaining steam, and now it's starting to make a rumble here in the 'States.
