Hardy has come onto the scene recently with his debut single “Rednecker.” His stamp has been all over country music though. He wrote Blake Shelton’s number one hit this year “God’s Country,” as well as Blake’s new song with Trace Adkins “Hell Right.” You can add Chris Lane’s new single “I Don’t Know About You” as well as hits from Florida Georgia Line and Morgan Wallen. Hardy is now getting set to release his own mixtape “Hardy Hixtape Vol. 1” which is set to come out this Friday (Sept. 13). Looks like it is going to be full of a bunch of collaborations. The first two songs released Hardy teamed up with Thomas Rhett for “Nothin’ Out Here” and Morgan Wallen for “He Went To Jared.” Anytime an artist is an extremely talented song writer it gives them a leg up. I expect Hardy to stick around country music for awhile.
