Featuring: Hank Williams Jr., Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley & Jason Derulo
ESPN’s Monday Night Football will feature the return of its iconic anthem this fall when legendary country singer 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 superstar duo Florida Georgia Line and multi-platinum recording artist Jason Derulo.
Williams returns to MNF for the first time since 2011 to perform the show’s opening anthem for an unprecedented 24th season, a ritual that has earned him four Emmy awards (1991–1994) and national acclaim among legions of football fans. Florida Georgia Line and Derulo will be appearing in the MNF video for the first time.
Hank Williams Jr.:
“I started in 1989 when ABC was celebrating the 20th season of Monday Night Football. It soon became a staple that fans grew to expect and wanted to see and hear. I am thrilled to be back and bring the fans such a new and dynamic rendition of this anthem. Are You Ready For Some Football? Cause I sure am!”
Florida Georgia Line:
“This is a huge honor to be a part of such a legendary song and night!” ~ Tyler Hubbard.
“We all grew up watching Monday Night Football and it’s surreal to join Jason Derulo and Hank Williams Jr. on this new version that gives a nod back but also a step forward!” ~ Brian Kelley
“It’s truly momentous to be featured in the Monday Night Football anthem for the upcoming season. I feel the opening song sets the tone and energizes the fans before kickoff, and this year I’m putting my swag on it.”
