With every new release, Big Loud Records’ HARDY puts his signature loud-and-rowdy stamp on modern Country music as both an artist and a songwriter. Following the release of HIXTAPE VOL. 1 – 17 all-star collaborations on 10 tracks, including current single “One Beer” featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson – the unprecedented compilation album was praised as “one of the most ambitious projects of the year” (Billboard). The countrified mixtape follows career-launching EPs THIS OLE BOY and WHERE TO FIND ME, and earned HARDY acclaim as a Vevo DSCVR artist, a MusicRow 2020 Next Big Thing artist, and “One To Watch” by CMT, Rolling Stone, Amazon, Pandora and more. The pride of Philadelphia, MS is “one of Music Row’s most consistent hit-makers on the rise” (CMT), tallying writing credits on four PLATINUM-certified #1 singles in 18 months – Morgan Wallen’s 2X PLATINUM “Up Down,” FGL’s 2X PLATINUM “Simple,” Chris Lane’s “I Don’t Know About You” and Shelton’s 2X PLATINUM “God’s Country.” Gaining recognition, HARDY has received the elite CMA Triple Play Award honoring Country Music’s greatest storytellers, and is a first-time ACM nominee up for both Songwriter of the Year and Song of the Year (“God’s Country”). HARDY is on the road now supporting Cole Swindell’s DOWN TO EARTH TOUR, and will join Thomas Rhett’s CENTER POINT ROAD TOUR this summer.
