News on Hank Jr., Enrique Iglesias, Manu Chao
Although as well known for his rowdy country music as for his annually updated theme to ABC's "Monday Night Football," the culinary skills of Hank Williams Jr. are rarely noted. That has all changed with "Hey, Good Cookin'!," a no-nonsense cookbook assembled by the musician.
"I just threw together a collection of the favorite food I like to eat," Williams said in a statement. "A lot of the recipes came from friends, fans, and my longtime family cook who fed me when I was growin' up. It's what I know best -- down home country cookin'."
Among the included recipes are "Super Bowl Salad," "Monday Night Cheese Ball," "Chicken A-La-Hank," "Mary Jane's Potato Pie," and "Merle Kilgore's Wolverton Mountain Sweeter Than Honey Kisses." The cookbook can be ordered from Williams' official Web site or by calling 731-642-7455.
On Sept. 9, Williams will kick-off the "Monday Night Football" season with a live performance of his "Are You Ready for Some Football" theme prior to ABC's broadcast of the Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots game.
