Well, that whole apology thing from Bocephus didn't last too long. Here's what Hank, Jr. posted on his website earlier today:

After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision. By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE.  It’s been a great run.

I guess that's all there is to say about that.
