6. "My Name Is Bocephus" By Hank Williams Jr.

Lynyrd skynyrd Songs | 6.

It doesn't get any more "country" than Hank Williams Jr. He's one of the genre's biggest stars, and his crossover appeal is so great that those in the Southern rock community also consider him as one of their own. 

Williams' legendary father gave him the nickname "Bocephus" after the dummy that Grand Ole Opry comedian Rod Brasfield used on the show. It's a nickname that Williams fully embraced as he developed himself as an artist and country music "outlaw." He even mentions the nickname in the title of one of his songs from the 1980s, called "My Name Is Bocephus."

But Williams' own name isn't the only name drop in the song. He also makes mention of Skynyrd at about the halfway point:

"I learned something from Lynyrd Skynyrd, from my Daddy and Ernest Tubb too. I do country-rock. I do blues."
