HARDY, Corbin release new music

Friday, January 20, 2023 – HARDY is out with his sophomore effort today, while Easton Corbin returns to action with a new CD.

HARDY, who has enjoyed much success as a songwriter, returns with "The Mockingbird & The Crow" on Big Loud Records. The disc, which contains the hit "Wait in the Truck" with Lainey Wilson, crosses genres with more of a rock side and one that is country. HARDY wrote with Hillary Lindsey, David Garcia, Ashley Gorley, Jessie Jo Dillon, Jordan Schmidt, Brett Tyler and Hunter Phelps. The Philadelphia, Miss. native also shows influences from Soundgarden, Puddle of Mudd, Pink Floyd, Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park and Matchbox 20. HARDY has written 12 number one singles since 2018, including his own double platinum single "One Beer" featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson, and chart-topping Dierks Bentley and BRELAND collaboration, "Beers On Me."

Easton Corbin, who is more of a country traditionalist, releases "Let's Do Country Right" on Stone Country Records. The 14-track release is Corbin's first full-length since 2015. He penned songs with Rhett Akins, Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson, Adam Craig, Rodney Clawson and Shane Minor.

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. ...
CD review - Where To Find Me There is a logical fallacy known as guilt by association. In the case of Hardy, it may be easy to harbor prejudice of Hardy because he's spent time writing songs with major bro country offenders, Florida Georgia Line. Hardy's "Where To Find Me" quickly and decisively puts any guilt by associations to rest with its opener, a beautiful country song called "I'll Quit Lovin' You," which is both smartly written and heartfelt. This project - his second EP - is ...
