GRAND FORKS — Hank Williams Jr., a nationally acclaimed country star and Country Music Hall of Fame artist, is coming to Grand Forks' Alerus Center.

The Alerus Center made the announcement Tuesday morning, saying Williams is scheduled to perform on May 29, supported by New Female Artist of the Year Lainey Wilson.

According to a press release sent by the Alerus Center, Williams has six certified platinum albums and 20 gold albums.

"As a touring artist, Hank was a pioneer in bringing arena rock production values to country music, and he remains one of the most consistent ticket sellers in music, period, as generation after generation gets turned on to one of the most dynamic live performers ever to take the stage," the release said.

“It’s about that time, and you better believe I’m ready, brothers and sisters,” Williams said in a statement included in the release. “We’re bringing some blues, some rock and some country back to country.”
