Various artists have been enlisted as support for a few dates here and there. Included are George Thorogood, Martina McBride, Montgomery Gentry and Uncle Kracker.

According to Williams folklore, the Almeria Club was an Alabama nightspot where, in 1947, Hank Williams’ (Sr.) performance was interrupted by a gun-wielding man who planned to shoot his wife and another man in the audience. Williams “dropped his guitar, grabbed his adored Miss Audry, Jr.’s mother, around the waist and literally headed for the hills.”

So, in tribute to his ma and pa, Williams Jr. named his 2002 album after the club.
