On the heels of announcing his second studio album themockingbird & THE CROW, he announced that he’ll be touring in support of the new half country, half rock record in 2023.
The tracklist for this album will literally be split in half, with all the country songs written in lowercase letters, the title track is also split, and all following rock songs are in uppercase writing.
He previously noted that this project will explore the internal pull he often feels between making the music he was raised on in Mississippi, and exploring the rock side of his personality and the other kinds of music he really loves.
Hardy is also gearing up for his Wall to Wall bar tour this December, and if he’ll be anywhere near you on either trek, don’t miss it.
Tickets for the mockingbird & THE CROW tour go on sale this Friday, and Jameson Rodgers and Blame My Youth will be opening for him, keeping that half rock, half country concept going even out on tour:
