NASHVILLE, TENN. –  Notching three nights of wall-to-wall sell-outs at Nashville Municipal Auditorium, Big Loud Records / Big Loud Rock heavy-hitter HARDY proved an exceptional outlier and one-of-one entertainer over the weekend, performing for crowds that could only be his – ones that bring “metalheads and country fans into the same mosh pit” (Alternative Press).

Taking flight, his sets hit every note, bringing fans along for a 90-minute thrill ride of “airtight country hooks and….pure rock-fueled adrenaline” (SPIN). From backroad debut EP deep cut “4X4,” to chart-topping hits “wait in the truck” performed with opener Lainey Wilson and “ONE BEER” with pop ups from collaborators Lauren Alaina + Devin Dawson, and his sister Madison Dennis on Saturday night, to crowd-pleasing aggro rock risers “RADIO SONG” and “KILL SH!T TILL I DIE,” to current hard-charged radio singles “TRUCK BED” (Top 25 at country) and “SOLD OUT” (Top 5 at rock), the night solidified HARDY’s reputation as “a force in the bigger and more lucrative world of country” (The New Yorker).

The Tennessean put it simply in their rave review of the headline show: “If there are two things Michael Wilson Hardy can do, it’s write a song and put on one heck of a show.”

Making history, HARDY’s weekend of consecutive sell-outs puts him in legendary company as the artist with the second-most ticket sales in a single run at Nashville Municipal Auditorium behind the King of rock ‘n roll himself, Elvis Presley, and the artist to play the most shows in a single weekend at the venue.

Soaring to new heights, the accolades keep rolling in for HARDY, who earned his first-ever Billboard Music Awards nomination for Best Rock Album with the mockingbird & THE CROW last week. He is additionally nominated for four 2023 CMA Awards at next week’s Nov. 8 ceremony for Song of the YearSingle of the YearMusic Video of the Year, and Musical Event of the Year, all for double platinum, career-changing hit “wait in the truck” feat. Lainey Wilson.
