NYCS Swag Session: Hunter Phelps

As an artist, Hunter Phelps might just be starting out in the country music genre, however, as a songwriter, he has seen a ton of success. He is a co-writer on Chris Lane’s most recent number one, “I Don’t Know About You”, Florida Georgia Line’s “Talk You Out of It”, and Chase Rice’s current single, “Lonely If You Are”. He just opened for HARDY on his Sirius XM The Highway Finds Tour which we caught when it stopped at Gramercy Theatre in NYC.

Before the show, Phelps stopped by NYCountry Swag for a Swag Session and to chat about growing up in Florida, writing “My Kinda Livin” with HARDY for his Hixtape Vol. 1 and meeting songwriter Ashley Gorley for the first time. Gorley, who was accompanying Phelps for his interview with us, hopped in the shot to chat about writing “I Don’t Know About You” and about signing the rising artist.

Swag Sessions Featuring HARDY

HARDY started out in Nashville as a songwriter for other artists and in the past 18 months has seen major success with four number one songs, “Up Down” cut by Morgan Wallen, “Simple” cut by Florida Georgia Line, “I Don’t Know About You” cut by Chris Lane and finally, most recently “God’s Country” cut by Blake Shelton.

While continuing to write songs, HARDY also decided to release his own music, his debut radio single “Rednecker” consistently climbed the country radio charts and his most recent release, Hixtape Vol. 1  is an album comprised of features, with 17 different artists putting their stamp on the collaborations.

This past week before his very first NYC, sold-out headlining show, the songwriter turned artist stopped by NYCountry Swag to perform his current single “Signed, Sober You” and chat about the tour, the Hixtape and much more. Watch the full video below.

Hunter Phelps Releases Evocative New Single “Take Me To Heaven”

Hunter Phelps

Up and coming artist, Hunter Phelps has penned hits for artists like Florida Georgia Line’s with “Talk You Out Of It” and I Don’t Know About You,” recorded by Chris Lane. Although he has definitely honed his songwriting skills, Phelps is a passionate artist in his own right. His newest song, “Take Me to Heaven,” which premiered on Friday (10/18) showcases his talents as both a singer and as a songwriter.

The new jam follows his summer hit, “You Don’t Want Me.” Co-written with tour mate, HARDY and Ben Johnson, Phelps sings about being a lost soul that finally found nirvana in a woman. The rising artist usually records songs about heartbreak and breaking up, so it is a nice change to see his more romantic and vulnerable side. There’s something enticing and evocative about a song that stems from a personal place like in “Take Me to Heaven.” The singer does not shy away from alluring lyrics or expressing intimacy in a song.

“I was just a lost soul / Couldn’t find solid ground / Burning up a broken road / No signs of slowing down / I heard angels were here and now I know / Because I saw you and saw streets of gold / Now you’re looking at me like you want to / I know you know the way, so won’t you / Take me to Heaven”

We expect to hear more from Phelps going forward, so country music fans should keep their eye peeled for more from the singer. We recently caught his opening gig at HARDY’s show this weekend, where the two even sang their song “My Kinda Livin’” together to a sold-out crowd. You can check out more awesome moments from the show here.

To keep up with Hunter Phelps follow them on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

“Take Me to Heaven” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

HARDY Electrifies New York City on First Headlining Tour

 

Droves of fans headed to New York City’s Gramercy Theatre on Friday Night to support singer-songwriter HARDY on his first ever headlining tour, SiriusXM Presents: The Highway Finds Tour. The rising artist brought along his buddy and fellow singer-songwriter, Hunter Phelps and newly signed, Sean Stemaly to perform for the sold-out crowd.

Sean Stemaly Tour

Tasked with warming up the already packed out venue, Stemaly took the stage first. The up and coming artist quickly got the crowd fired up, playing both party songs and creative love songs. His setlist included fan-favorite, “Back on a Backroad” and “Last Night All Day,” a brand new song that was released the same day.

Independent artist and hit songwriter, Hunter Phelps took the stage next. The singer-songwriter played a mix of his own songs and songs he has written for other artists throughout this forty-five-minute set, engaging the audience the whole way through. His set included “You Don’t Want Me,” and his brand new song “Take Me to Heaven,” which he wrote with none other than the headliner, HARDY.

Hunter Phelps Tour

Fans showed their appreciation for each and every one of Phelps’ own songs, but the energy in the room was unparalleled when he sang his hits as a songwriter. Beginning with what he humbly shared as his “first top ten hit,” as a songwriter, the singer showed off his vocals on his acoustic version of Florida Georiga Line’s “Talk You Out of It,” and Chase Rice’s new single “Lonely If You Are,” which Phelps’ penned. Quickly before singing the smash hit, “I Don’t Know About You,” which he penned for Chris Lane, he shared with fans that on his birthday, “We had the number one song in the country for the first time.” Phelps’ exciting set culminated with his break-out song, “Breakup Sex,” which of course fans knew every word to.

When HARDY finally took the stage, the crowd in Manhattan went wild. Fans were ready to sing along to each and every song, chanting ‘HARDY” multiple times throughout the night. The singer exploded on to the stage with upbeat songs “Boy From The South” and “All She Left Was Me.” Afterward, he took a second to humbly introduce himself, even though no introduction was needed. “First of all my name is HARDY. I grew up in a little town called Philadelphia, Mississippi. I moved to Nashville when I was 19 years old. For a long time, I was a songwriter, before I started singing my own songs, I was writing songs for other people,” adding, “I am very blessed to say I am a hit songwriter at this point in my career.”

Sure enough, he went on to sing the number one song, recorded by Blake Shelton, “God’s Country,” transitioning smoothly into another song off arguably one of the best albums of 2019, Hixtape Vol. 1, “Nothing Out Here.” HARDY kept the party going, singing both “Something a Lil’ Stronger” and “He Went to Jared” also off the new record.

Hunter Phelps HARDY

Since Hixtape Vol. 1 is all about getting a little help from your friends, HARDY made sure to bring both Stemaly and Phelps back to the stage for some epic duets. Stemaly lent his voice to “Y’all Boys,” a song written by HARDY and cut by the boys of Florida Georgia Line, while Phelps performed two songs with the headliner. Calling Phelps one of his best friends and telling the audience how the two “came up together,” in the industry, HARDY and Phelps are no stranger to collaborations, having penned many songs together, including “My Kinda Livin’,” which they performed, and FGL’s, “Colorado.”

About half-way through the set, HARDY slowed it down a bit, dedicating “Signed Sober You,” off his EP  WHERE TO FIND ME, to fans going through a break-up “To anyone who got in a cab and felt lonely, and they got home, and they did not write a note to themselves out of it [contacting an ex]”, leading the whole crowd in a toast. In a rare moment, HARDY showcased his vulnerable side in the exquisite performance of the track.

Throughout the night, fans surprised even HARDY with how well they knew a deep cut of Hixtape, “One Beer.” He performed an acoustic version of the song that originally featured both Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson, just after “Signed, Sober You.” Fans screamed the song as loud as they could, rendering HARDY speechless, as he pointed the mic towards the audience. It was one of the most raw, impactful, and electrifying moments of the entire impressive set.

HARDY Gramercy

HARDY made sure to sing his heartfelt “This Ole Boy” and “I’ll Quit Loving You,” too before accelerating into the metal-inspired tune, “Turn You Down.” Of course, he shouted out his good buddy and fellow country singer, Morgan Wallen on this track, but also when he sang Wallen’s song that he co-wrote, the number one track, “Up Down”. After signing a few more songs like “No Place Like Hometown” and “4X4,” HARDY and his band exited the stage, only to come back with an explosive encore.

“I want to say thank you so much to you guys for coming out, seriously. I want to say this, I put this song out one year ago to the day. This is the only time ever in history that I will ever be able to say that and it’s in New York City at the Gramercy Theatre. So, with that being said, let’s pay homage to that, by singing ‘happy birthday’ figuratively, not literally to the most redneck song ever in county freaking music,” he screamed, before ending the night on a high note with “Rednecker.”

By the time HARDY ended his energetic and dynamic set, it was safe to say that we were in the presence of a superstar in the making. He left each and every fan in awe of his talent, and we cannot wait to see how he continues to evolve as both a songwriter and an artist.

To keep up with HARDY follow him on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Country Music Artists Who Started Out As Songwriters

Behind every one of our favorite songs is a team of songwriters, who are quietly creating beautiful lyrics and enticing melodies. In some cases, like with “Humble and Kind,” by Lori McKenna, a single songwriter is the brains behind the entire song. Lately, it seems songwriters are stepping out into the limelight, releasing their own music to the world as solo artists.

Here are some of our favorite songwriters turned solo artists:

HARDY

HARDY is the man behind several number one songs. Most recently he co-wrote “God’s Country” for Blake Shelton, as well as, “Up Down” for Morgan Wallen. For the last year or so, the singer-songwriter has ventured out on his own, releasing two EP’s THIS OLE BOY and WHERE TO FIND ME, while also creating a masterpiece of a collaborative full-length record called HIXTAPE, Vol. 1. In his short time center-stage, HARDY has toured with the likes of Wallen, Florida Georgia Line, and Dan + Shay. This December, we’ll finally get to catch a full set from the rising artist, when he embarks on his first headlining tour. We are pumped to see what HARDY brings to the table next with his creative and unique music. Check out our interview with him to learn more about his transition from songwriter to artist.

Chris Stapleton

Before he shot to stardom with his debut record Traveller, Chris Stapleton was one of Nashville’s most respected songwriters. Stapleton co-wrote Kenny Chesney’s number one, “Never Wanted Nothing More,” George Strait’s “Love’s Gonna Make It Alright,” and Luke Bryan’s “Drink a Beer.” He’s even ventured out of the genre, both collaborating on songs for Grammy winner, Adele and Ed Sheeran, as well as, performing with Justin Timberlake and P!nk. As a solo artist, Stapleton is the recipient of five Grammy Awards, several Academy of Country Music Awards, as well as, many Country Music Awards. It’s clear that he will continue to be a staple in the music industry for decades to come.

Lee Brice

Since 2006, Lee Brice has warmed our hearts with his lyrics and made our souls dance with his melodies. Before making it as a solo artist, Brice co-wrote songs for Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, and Garth Brooks. It wasn’t until 2010 that he released his debut record Love Like Crazy, which garnered nominations for its title track. Even after finding success with his own music and releasing four albums, Brice still finds time to write for other artists. Most recently he co-wrote “Boy” for Faith Hill. It has been two years since Brice gave us new music of his own, so we’re hopeful that he has more music in the works in 2020!

Maren Morris Songwriter

Maren Morris

One of our favorite songstresses in the industry, Maren Morris, started her incredible career as a songwriter. She penned songs for artists like Tim McGraw, Kelly Clarkson, Jessie James Decker, and Brothers Osborne. Now she is one of the most notable women singer-songwriters in country music. Her sophomore record GIRL has already broken records and the title track was the first song by a female to grab the top spot on country radio in months. As if Morris isn’t busy enough, she continues to expand her platform, spreading the message of female empowerment and strength, as one of the members of the new all female super-group The Highwomen. We admire Morris’ confidence and look forward to her future success.

Josh Kerr

Hit songwriter, Josh Kerr recently exploded on to the scene as a solo artist! In just a month, he has garnered attention for his debut songs, “Still Our Town,” and “Oklahoma,” as well as for proposing to Maddie & Tae’s, Taylor Dye. Musically speaking, Kerr has penned Keith Urban’s top 20 hit, “Never Comin’ Down,” Abby Anderson’s “GOOD LORD,” as well as, “If My Heart Had a Heart” by Cassadee Pope and several songs on Kelsea Ballerini’s debut album. Most recently, he even co-wrote Maddie & Tae’s “Bathroom Floor.” Kerr is already a respected songwriter and producer in Nashville, and we cannot wait to see how his career as a solo artist will blossom.

Ingrid Andress

One of our favorite new songstresses, Ingrid Andress started her career as a songwriter. Before she shared her own prolific music with the world, she wrote for artists such as Alicia Keys, Sam Hunt, and Charlie XCX. Andress even received co-writer credits on Lauren Jenkins record No Saint, which was released earlier this year. She’s one of the most unique vocalists in country music right now, but her exquisite knack for storytelling will always be paramount. We can’t wait to see how her way with words and arrangements will manifest in more of her own music in the future.

NYCS First Impression: HARDY Hixtape Vol. 1

HARDY HIxtape

HARDY is already an established songwriter in Nashville, but he’s surely becoming one of country music’s favorite new artists. He just wrapped up his opening gig on Florida Georgia Line’s headlining tour, just in time to gear up for his own tour. The recording artist continues to keep fans on the edge of their seats with his own music, and his newest project Hixtape VOL. 1 is no exception. Filled will star-studded collaborations, the album is truly a breath of fresh air.

On each of the ten tracks, HARDY had a little help from his friends, collaborating with a total of seventeen artists, who span the country music genre. From Joe Diffie to Keith Urban to Lauren Alaina to heavy-metal legend, Zakk Wylde, HARDY covers the whole spectrum, delivering a record for every kind of country music lover.

Beginning with the countrified track, “Boy From The South,” HARDY leans on Cole Swindell and Dustin Lynch to lend their vocals to the song. He somehow manages to intertwine all the country boy stereotypes into refreshing and rhythm lyrics. The song feels easy, yet packs a punch that fans will definitely appreciate. Keeping with a similar theme, HARDY continues to lament about country living in “Redneck Tendencies” with Trace Adkins and Joe Diffie. Though similar in spirit, the song has a much softer arrangement but is just as enticing.

“Can’t nobody tell me what I’m going to do / Yeah mama tried to raise me right / But she couldn’t raise a hell out of me / I told her rednecks tend to have some redneck tendencies.”

On the contrary, “He Went to Jared” has a more in your face arrangement. Featuring Morgan Wallen, the singer and HARDY trade verses, singing about their experiences losing their perspective girls to a clean-cut guy. The track, as well as, “Nothing Out Here” with Thomas Rhett, was one of the two songs that were released prior to the record, and it has already made a splash on the charts. HARDY collaborates with Wallen yet again in “Turn You Down,” which also features killer guitar skills from Ozzy Osborne’s guitarist, Zakk Wylde. The song has an undeniable charm that makes it nearly impossible to turn it off.

“When you turn me on, I just can’t turn you down / Like a damn good time.”

HARDY honors his Mississippi roots in most of the tracks off the record, but it is especially prevalent in “My Kinda Livin,” “What They Make Backroads For,” and “No Place Like Hometown.” In “My Kinda Livin,” the Mississippi native enlists help from his friends, Hunter Phelps and Jameson Rodgers. The trio pay tribute to rural living in the perfectly crafted mellow tune. Each singer takes a verse, causally expressing how “less busy, more laid back” is their “kinda livin’.”

HARDY, Tracy Lawrence, and Jake Owen also sing about the highs of good ole’ country living in “What They Make Backroads For,” while Keith Urban and Hillary Lindsay help sing praises for his hometown in the edgy “No Place Like Hometown.”

The next song off the record has arguably the most unique sound out of the ten. “Something A Lil Stronger” hooks you right away with the first lyric, “I’m just a good time junkie / always leaving the things that love me / wish I could make it last just a little longer / but I keep looking for something a lil stronger.” Swag session alum, Mitchell Tenpenny and Jon Langston combine their talents with HARDY in this refreshing new track.

Closing out the record, HARDY chooses to show off his vocals and softer side in “One Beer,” a collaboration with fellow “God’s Country,” songwriter, Devin Dawson and songstress Lauren Alaina. Quite possibly the most surprising combination of voices, it may be the most poignant track off the impressive collection of songs. The three singers lament about how so much in life and love can start with just a beer, singing “ain’t it funny what one beer can turn into.”

Overall this record is a perfect interpretation of who HARDY is an artist and as a human. He’s managed to deliver an innovative project, where each and every song could possibly work as a single. Clearly, he is just as loved as he is respected amongst his country music family, and we can’t wait to see what collaborations he has in the works for the next installment.

Take a look back at our interview with HARDY earlier this summer where he talks about his transition from songwriter to artist.

HARDY Drops Two New Songs On His ‘Hixtape Volume 1’

HARDY HIXTAPE

Songwriter turned solo artist, HARDY has written many hit songs for artists in the industry, including Morgan Wallen, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton, and Chris Lane. If you didn’t know his name then, you certainly do now! Between debuting his EP Where to Find Me, to releasing his first radio single “Rednecker,” and being named a VEVO DSCVR Artist to Watch, HARDY is proving that he is the real deal. Most recently(9/6), he released two songs, “Nothing Out Here” and “He Went to Jared” off his new project Hixtape Volume 1 set to be released on September 13th.

The new record appears to be full of collaborations with other country artists. The song art showcasing HARDY with shadowed outlines of other artists and a clear image of the singer being featured on the track only adds to that theory. This week, he released “Nothing Out Here” with Thomas Rhett and “He Went to Jared” with Morgan Wallen.

Although both songs are fun and upbeat, the first track focuses on the pride that HARDY has for his rural upbringing. The Mississippi native proudly sings about all the stereotypes put on people, who are from “the sticks.” It’s definitely an anthem for being unapologetically you and proudly representing where you come from. Rhett adds a surprising element to the already lyrical and sonically enticing tune. The two vocalists combine their sounds for a catchy new one that you will for sure add to your playlist.

“All you’re gonna find windin’ through the country / Is some middle-of-nowhere folks / Makin’ something outta nothin’ out here”

HARDY draws inspiration from his good-ole-boy roots yet again in his collaboration with Wallen, “He Went to Jared.” The two singers are best friends and spent this past year touring together on both FGL’s ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country’ Tour and Wallen’s own headlining tour, garnering a similar, yet supportive fanbase. Co-written together with Chase McGill, the song is a complete jam. The duo trade verses, singing about their own experiences losing their love to a clean-cut man. They make comparisons about the stark differences between themselves and the new man, adding that they “ain’t into girls into guys like that.”

“Thinkin’ about him there with a white horse and carriage / Nearly three karats, he went to Jared / I went to the bar / Yeah, I went to the bar.”

To learn more about HARDY and his blossoming music career, check out our exclusive interview with him, just before he played for New York country fans at Jones Beach back in July, alongside FGL, Dan + Shay, and Morgan Wallen.

To keep up with HARDY follow him on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

“Nothing Out Here” and “He Went to Jared” are now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
