Big Loud Records’ booming upstart HARDY broke new ground in 2020 with acclaimed debut album, A ROCK, “an album that owes as much to AC/DC as George Jones” and “one of the most self-assured full-length debut albums in years” (Billboard). The project follows 2019’s countrified mixtape HiXTAPE VOL. 1, and career-launching EPs THIS OLE BOY and WHERE TO FIND ME. Nominated for three 2021 ACM Awards –New Male Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, and Music Event of the Year (“ONE BEER” feat. Lauren Alaina & Devin Dawson)–one of CRS’ 2021 New Faces of Country Music, a CMA Triple Play award recipient and a Vevo DSCVR artist, the pride of Philadelphia, MS has earned his reputation as “Nashville’s most clever new redneck songwriter” (Rolling Stone). The 2020 AIMP Songwriter of the Year has co-penned EIGHT #1 singles since 2018: FGL’s 2X PLATINUM “Simple,” Chris Lane’s 2X PLATINUM “I Don’t Know About You,” Blake Shelton’s 3X PLATINUM “God’s Country,” Morgan Wallen’s 2X PLATINUM “Up Down” and PLATINUM “More Than My Hometown,” LOCASH’s GOLD “One Big Country Song,” Jameson Rodgers’ GOLD “Some Girls,” and his own first-ever #1, PLATINUM “ONE BEER.” Current single “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL” is a hard charged tribute to a fallen friend, making a statement as the most-added single of the week at Country radio upon launch. HARDY has shared the stage with FGL, Chris Lane, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell and more.
