NASHVILLE, TENN. – Closing out the mockingbird & THE CROW chapter of his buzzy, genre-bending ascent, HARDY celebrates the acclaimed No. 1 album and its making with new short film “becoming THE CROW,” available everywhere tonight at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT.
Directed and led by frequent collaborator Justin Clough, the 22-minute short takes fans through two book end show days from his record high 2023 – one on Jan. 23 at his album release double-header in Los Angeles, playing the album across iconic venues The Troubadour and The Roxy in one night; another on Oct. 26, the first night of his three-night stand of sold-out arena shows at Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium.
The film gets up close and personal with HARDY, filled with interview content that highlights the inspiration behind his lauded, two-faced project and the award-winning entertainer’s unique take on artistry, as well as feature interviews with producers Joey Moi and David Garcia, label head and manager Seth England and manager Troy “Tracker” Johnson, HARDY’s band mates, touring camp, and many more.
Stay tuned for more HARDY news coming soon.
Big Loud Records’ heavy-hitter HARDY has never been just one thing. Uncaging his latest chapter earlier this year, HARDY soared to new heights with the release of the mockingbird & THE CROW, his critically acclaimed half-country, half-rock sophomore album, adding to four billion career streams. The dichotomous, 17-track effort debuted top five all-genre on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and kinged seven additional Billboard charts in its first week, including Top Country Albums, Top Rock Albums, and Top Album Sales. The pride of Philadelphia, Miss. has earned his reputation as “a promising purveyor of keeping the spirit of classic heavy Southern rock alive” (American Songwriter), “capable of writing the big hits for radio, obstinate enough to do something completely unexpected, and savvy enough to find the throughline for it all” (Rolling Stone). A 5X ACM award winner and 2X CMA award winner, HARDY has also won three CMA Triple Play awards, was named the 2022 BMI Country Songwriter of the Year, and is a three-time AIMP Songwriter of the Year. HARDY has written 13 No. 1 singles including his own double platinum No. 1 single “ONE BEER” feat. Lauren Alaina + Devin Dawson, chart-topping, platinum Dierks Bentley + BRELAND collaboration, “Beers On Me,” and game-changing platinum duet “wait in the truck” feat. Lainey Wilson. He’s previously toured with Thomas Rhett, Morgan Wallen, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Cole Swindell, and more, and wrapped 2023 on his sold-out headline arena tour, the mockingbird & THE CROW Tour.
