After being crowned the winner of American Idol in 2019, Laine Hardy is ready to showcase his new music with the release of two brand new songs: “Ground I Grew Up On” and “Let There Be Country.”
Releasing April 10, the new songs were written by Brandon Kinney, Josh Thompson and Brett Beavers (“Ground I Grew Up On” ) and Jason Afable, Steve Moakler and Tim Nichols (“Let There Be Country”) and offer a tip of the hat to Hardy’s Louisiana upbringing.
“I am so excited to finally be able to release this new music! I hope these songs give you an idea of where I grew up on the Bayou, running through the fields with my cousins and fishing on Lake Maurepas. Louisiana is always going to be in my heart, and I want to just keep making Louisianans proud,” he shares. “My family is all staying home together, including my cousin who is also my drummer. Makes sense to make some music while we’re at it. Really miss being on the road and can’t wait to share these new songs online.”
To celebrate the release of his new music, Hardy will embark on the Ground I Grew Up On Virtual Tour, which will make 15 stops through the end of May, including a stop on Country Now‘s Facebook page on May 4. During the virtual tour stops, Hardy will perform new music and chat with fans.
Laine Hardy’s new songs are available for pre-save/pre-add.
