Jeff Swartz on the next big thing in media

Touching on everything and anything to do with media, advertising, and marketing

Almost 20 Years of “Are You Ready For Some Football!”

Mr. Hank Williams Jr. has been apart of the NFL longer than today’s players. Williams has been asking “Are you ready for some football?” on Monday Night Football with a new, sometimes odd, music video since 1989. The song derived from one of Williams’ original songs called “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight.”

I will be interested in seeing his new video when Baltimore takes on Cincinnati this season. The video is said to have music sensations such as: Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi, country singer Gretchen Wilson, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, actor/singer/guitar Drake Bell, John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting, drummer Cindy Blackman, and, returning from last year’s band, bassist Bassist Bootsy Collins. For more information about Williams’ roll in the NFL please look at this USA Today article.

  1. They need to keep Hank and lose the others. They tried using Jon Bon Jovi many years ago but it failed.

    If it ain’t fixed, don’t broke it đŸ™‚
