NASHVILLE, TENN. (August 17, 2020) — Adapting to the times and putting his catalog “ladled with classic-rock, Southern rock and alt-rock influences” (Billboard) on full display, Big Loud Records’ HARDY is launching today his HARDY 360 LIVE series — a revved up collection of full-band performance videos shot in Nashville, TN.
A much-needed taste of live music, HARDY 360 LIVE debuts with an electric, hard-rocking performance of “BOOTS,” the inaugural early-release from his buzzed about LP A ROCK, available everywhere September 4. Called “a tune whose electric musculature will immediately appeal to fans” (American Songwriter), the live shot delivers on what “BOOTS” is known for — “searing guitars and a grandiose melody, the song leans more toward hard rock and even grunge” (Taste of Country).
Charging on toward release day while current single “ONE BEER” feat Lauren Alaina & Devin Dawson heats up Country radio’s Top 20, HARDY’s garnering critical acclaim as anticipation builds around A ROCK. His latest “lump-in-your-throat preview” (Sounds Like Nashville) of the project, “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL,” was an overnight hit, with its music video racking up 1 MILLION views in the first week alone. This week, Billboard profiled the hitmaker’s songwriting ascent with an “In Demand” feature, calling him “Country’s Hit Songwriter” — read the full breakdown here.
