ESPN parts ways with Hank Williams Jr., ‘Monday Night’ theme

ESPN has decided to part ways with Hank Williams Jr. and his song “All My Rowdy Friends” after his remarks on Fox News earlier this week.

The song will no longer serve as the opening to “Monday Night Football” and no replacement is known at this time.

In a statement, ESPN said, “We have decided to part ways with Hank Williams, Jr. We appreciate his contributions over the past years. The success of Monday Night Football has always been about the games and that will continue.”
