NASHVILLE, TENN. – Big Loud Records’ genre-bending, platinum heavy hitter HARDY continues his “country-rock rebellion” (SPIN) today, collaborating with gold-selling rock band Beartooth on new single “The Better Me (feat. HARDY),” out now via Red Bull Records. Listen here.
The epic collaboration is a product of the friendship and mutual musical admiration between HARDY and Beartooth frontman Caleb Shomo. HARDY spoke about their relationship and getting Shomo’s advice on best scream / singing practices with Billboard earlier this year, in tandem with the release of his half country, half rock sophomore album, the mockingbird & THE CROW.
“I’ve always been a Beartooth fan,” HARDY says. “I’m excited we finally got to do something together and I’m honored to be part of their new record.”
About the song, Shomo adds: “There are times where we feel like there is a way better version of ourselves somewhere deep inside that we need to find and bring back to the forefront of our lives. This song is about going through the things that brought me to that conclusion. Simply put, I made a choice to be a better me.”
Both Beartooth and HARDY are currently in the Top 15 on the Active Rock radio charts and climbing, with Beartooth’s “Might Love Myself” up two slots this week to No. 14, and HARDY’s “SOLD OUT” at No. 11.
