Big Loud Records recording artist, HARDY has had major success as a songwriter, co-writing label-mate, Morgan Wallen’s smash hit “Up Down,” as well as, Florida Georgia Line’s songs “Simple” and “Talk You Out of It.” Already deemed, in a recent press release, as “the most exciting new lyricist in County today”, now, HARDY is putting his own spin on country music as a solo artist. The vocalist debuted his second EP, Where to Find Me earlier today.
HARDY’s latest project features four perfectly crafted tracks that feature witty lyrics, confidence, fresh sounds, and undeniable charm. The EP opens up with a creative love song entitled “I’ll Quit Lovin You”. The track puts the talented singer’s vulnerability and cleverness as a lyricist on display. The chorus will have country fans swooning at the heartfelt words and HARDY’s charming vocals. When you look at me / I just don’t believe that some things can’t last forever / I’ll quit lovin’ you / When country roads don’t wind and curve / When cold beer don’t quench your thirst / When there ain’t an ‘Amen’ in Church.”
HARDY continues to play with his traditional country sound in the next track off the EP, “All She Left Was Me.” The up-tempo track, co-written by the singer with rising country star, Morgan Wallen and songwriter Jesse Frasure, features that county boy charm that HARDY is becoming known for. Deemed a “starting-over anthem,” the jam will have fans singing along in no time at a live show.
Next up is arguably the most powerful song on the EP, named, “Signed, Sober You.” Featuring HARDY’s unique vocals and a quiet steel guitar, the ballad will tug at your heartstrings. The song is a take on going through a break-up and missing someone, especially when drunk. It is a reminder from “Sober You” on how to cope with the mixed emotions that are so prevalent, during the demise of a relationship. “I know you think you miss her, but I promise you, you don’t / There’s healing in the lonely / Sit back, kick off your boots / And you’ll thank me in the morning like you always do / Signed, Sober You,” sings HARDY in the lyrical letter to himself. Although the lyrics are still a standout, HARDY really hones in on his voice and talent as a singer on this track.
Closing out the well-rounded EP is the title track, “Where To Find Me”. Written by HARDY with James McNair and Zach Abend, the song is as country as it gets. The bluesy, backwoods, hard-hitting track showcases HARDY’s gritty vocals and unapologetic pride in his home state of Mississippi. “I be staying in the woods or on the water / Top of a hill / Down in the holler / Anywhere where I can unwind / Drink a beer / Disappear / Put the world behind me / Y’all I was born in Mississippi / I’m redneck / I’m a hick / I’m a hippie.”
HARDY has quite the year ahead of him. He is currently on the ‘If I Know Me Tour’ with headliner, Morgan Wallen. The tour hits New York City’s Irving Plaza on February 21st. Additionally, HARDY will join forces with Wallen again on select dates of Florida Georgia Line’s 2019 ‘Can’t Say I Aint’ Country Tour’ kicking off this June. New Yorkers can catch the show at the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theatre on July 20th. Tickets will be on sale via Ticketmaster soon. Make sure to keep up with HARDY via social media.
