It's New Music Friday, and what a week it has been! We are beyond thrilled to kick off the new year with some amazing releases from our favorite country music artists.
The talented HARDY has just dropped his latest single, "Quit!!". In this song, he references his 2022 ACM Honors speech, where he accepted the ACM Songwriter of the Year award for the first time. He shares a funny anecdote about finding the word "quit" on a napkin in his tip jar, and how it made him chuckle. This heavy-rock infused country anthem takes us through his journey, including his early success with Florida Georgia Line and Morgan Wallen.
Concerned about HARDY changing his sound? Well, fear not! He sings, "And when it comes to the king, that's the radio. If you don't like my s--t, don't play it. I don't give a f--k. I'm still gonna book arenas and fill 'em up." His unapologetic attitude is sure to resonate with fans.
To support his new single, HARDY has also announced a 15-date tour called QUIT!! with special guests Kip Moore, Travis Denning, Ella Langley, and Stephen Wilson Jr. This tour will follow the release of his project on March 29th, Hixtape Vol. 3. This is a tribute project to Joe Diffie and features collaborations with Post Malone and Wallen. Tickets for the QUIT!! tour go on sale on January 19th at 10 am local time, with select fan pre-sales starting on January 16th. You can find the full list of tour dates on hardyofficial.com.
In addition to HARDY's release, there are other buzz-worthy songs that we can't stop listening to. Chris Young's "Right Now," Conner Smith's "Meanwhile In California," Scotty McCreery's "Can't Pass That Bar," Dylan Schneider's "Bad Decisions," and Peytan Porter's "Lemonade" are all on repeat.
Brian Kelley also dropped a new single titled "Trucks, Ducks, Bucks & Beer," inspired by his time in the countryside with his wife Brittney in Georgia. We're also loving Hannah Ellis's highly-anticipated debut record, "That Girl," and Jordan Davis's acoustic version of his single "Tucson Too Late."
This week has been a treat with releases from Josh Ross, Catie Offerman, Georgia Webster, Troy Cartwright, Anella Herim, Brit Taylor, Zach Top, Shane Profitt, High Valley, Julia Cole, Ryan Kinder, and Maggie Baugh.
