HARDY, Wilson team up for "wait in the truck'

Friday, August 26, 2022 – ACM Songwriter of the Year HARDY and ACM New Female Artist of the Year winner Lainey Wilson are out today with the single "wait in the truck."

A dark country fable at its core, the back-and-forth ballad written by HARDY, Hunter Phelps, Jordan Schmidt and Renee Blair, which was produced by Joey Moi with co-production from HARDY, Derek Wells, and Jordan Schmidt, employs an acoustic guitar pluck and a gospel choir.

"'wait in the truck,' my next single, is one of my favorite songs I've ever written - probably the best song I've ever written to be honest," HARDY said. "It hit me so hard the first time I heard the demo back, and no other song had done that before. Very excited for the world to hear the song, excited for the song to give people a platform to maybe speak out about stuff that might be going on in their own homes. Thank you to Lainey Wilson for doing this song with me. She crushed it. She crushed the music video. I just can't wait for the world to see this, and I can't wait to play it live."

"I always love working with HARDY, but this track is extra special," Wilson said. "I am so proud to be part of 'wait in the truck' because it's such a powerful song and story, and I really do think it will change lives."

A cinematic music video also was released. The video was directed by Justin Clough and shot in Carthage, Tenn. earlier this summer. As he wrote the song, HARDY also conceptualized the treatment for the official music video.

CD review - the mockingbird & The CROW Although much has been made of the two HARDY personality traits revealed via "the mockingbird & THE CROW" album – part country, part hard rock – the more one listens to this extensive, 17-track album, the less musical style actually seems to matter. This is because we get to know HARDY's writing style well while listening to it, and he leaves a distinct, unique personal fingerprint with it. Even though he worked with co-writers for most of these tracks, they're ...
CD review - Bell Bottom Country Lainey Wilson was named Billboard's Top New Country Artist of 2021, ACM 2022 New Female Artist of the Year, CMT's 2022 "Breakout Artist of the Year" and scored six CMA Awards nominations, some impressive achievements for a relatively new face on the country music scene. This new album only confirms that she is a unique talent with her own sound in a genre that usually rewards conformity and sameness. There is as much rock 'n' roll in these tunes as there is country ...
CD review - A Rock There's a special form of alchemy going on with certain country stars these days. Take some Goodwill Store fashion, electric guitar love and mix it with the simple life concerns of a down-home good 'ole boy. Grunge meets Country...Gruntry? Take Michael Wilson Hardy, for example. He's way more likely to look like he just worked on your car than just had his hair feathered. If he owns a 10-gallon hat, it's in the back of his closet with the tag still on it. ...
