Hank Williams Jr apologizes for his comments, Miranda sings about Blake's late brother

Hank Williams Junior has issued an apology after being yanked from Monday Night Football for making a comment on Fox and Friends that seemed to compare President Obama to Adolf Hitler. He says, "I have always been very passionate about politics and sports, and this time it got the best or worst of me. The thought of the leaders of both parties 'junkin' and 'high fivin'' on a golf course, while so many families are struggling to get by, made me boil over and make a dumb statement, and I am very sorry if it offended anyone. I would like to thank all my supporters. This was not written by some publicist."

I can't wait for Miranda Lambert's new CD, Four the Record, to come out so I'm scouring the net for any details I can find. I just read that the CD is going to features a special song...a tribute to Blake Shelton's brother Richie, who died in a car accident when Blake was 14. Miranda and Blake co-wrote "Over You," because according to Miranda, "I think maybe we had been talking about the wedding, saying, 'I wish Richie could be here.' It just kind of came to us." She tried to get Blake to record the song, but he was afraid he would be too emotional. Four the Record comes out on November 1st.
