In the past year or so, Hardy has made a name for himself a one of mainstream country’s most prolific songwriters. Penning huge Blake Shelton singles including “God’s Country” and “Hell Right,” along with Morgan Wallen’s “Up Down,” and cuts by Florida Georgia Line, Chris Lane, Jake Owen and more, his resumé is now starting to fill up with his own songs.
His debut single “Rednecker” cracked the top 25 and his current single, the John Prine-inspired “One Beer” featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson, is about to break the top 20 on the Billboard Airplay charts.
His Mixtape Vol. 1 record featured collaborations with some of the biggest artists in country music and even the late, great Joe Diffie, but now, he’s gearing up to release his first (or second, I guess) studio album titled, A Rock.
In addition to “One Beer,” and his most recent release “Give Heaven Some Hell,” the new album will also feature “Boots,” a hard rocking breakup anthem reminiscent of something from the early 2000s punk era. Personally, it gives me some Relient K vibes (if you’re familiar with them). If you’re not, don’t worry about it.
Anyways today, Hardy released a live performance video of the song.
“Been working on some live videos & I’m excited to share the first one with ya. Only thing that would have made these better is having y’all in the crowd.”
