Cody Canada And The Departed Return With New Single “Hard As It Seems”

Get a little red dirt in your soul.

Cody Canada and the Departed just released their brand new single titled “Hard As It Seems,” and with a recent resurgence around the conversation of Red Dirt music, it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Author Josh Crutchmer is about to release a book titled Red Dirt: Roots Music, Born in Oklahoma, Raised in Texas, at Home Anywherefeaturing an in-depth look at the Red Dirt music scene, its history, its cornerstone artists like Cody, and even features a new interview with Evan Felker of Turnpike Troubadours.

And of course, Kane Brown made headlines recently when he said that red dirt fans “can’t stand” him, although I’m not sure Kane even knows what Red Dirt Country is, but that’s neither here nor there…

Either way, Cody and the fellas are back with a new single and that’s always great news. It’s the band’s first release since their 2018 album, 3.

Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
