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).
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 Year, Single of the Year, Music Video of the Year, and Musical Event of the Year, all for double platinum, career-changing hit “wait in the truck” feat. Lainey Wilson.
