Laine Hardy is offering fans a new take on his songs “Ground I Grew Up On” and “Let There Be Country” with the release of acoustic versions of the fan-favorite tracks.

The former American Idol champ was inspired to release acoustic versions of the songs after playing several acoustic shows over the past few months.

“I really wanted to release the acoustic version of these songs cause this is how I’ve been playing them recently,” Hardy shared on social media. “We’ve been performing them stripped down during the #vTour stops and now that I’m quarantined for a bit, I’ve just been playing them by myself at home with my guitar. I hope y’all like them!”

The release of the acoustic tracks comes just after Hardy was forced to postpone the upcoming dates of his virtual tour due to being diagnosed with coronavirus. Though his symptoms are mild, he is remaining in quartine until he is free of the virus.

His virtual tour will resume on July 23 and August 6. Fans can find more information about that HERE.
