NASHVILLE, TENN. – Kicking down the door on his next chapter of music, Big Loud Records / Big Loud Rock heavy-hitter HARDY returns today with “QUIT!!,” an autobiographical and referential spoken word track that recaps his journey to becoming “Nashville’s nü-metal king” (Los Angeles Times).

Calling back to his infamous 2022 ACM Honors speech accepting his first-ever ACM Songwriter of the Year award, HARDY’s “QUIT!!” continues to push the boundaries wide on his bombastic, genre-less, and wide-reaching appeal. SPIN puts it simply: “For HARDY, a rock-loving country star, shocking his audience in this way is exactly the point.”

“Thank you for inspiring me to be great,” HARDY says. “I guess sometimes holding a grudge is a good thing.”

Listen to “QUIT!!” here and watch the song’s visualizer here.

Taking “QUIT!!” and more new music to come directly to fans, HARDY also announces today his 15-date summer Quit!! tour produced by Live Nation, bringing Kip MooreTravis DenningElla Langley, and Stephen Wilson Jr. with him to amphitheaters and arenas across North America, headlining the largest venues of his career.

Big Loud Records’ heavy-hitter HARDY has never been just one thing. Kicking down the door on his next chapter of music now, he returns with “QUIT!!,” an autobiographical and referential spoken word track that recaps his journey to becoming “Nashville’s nü-metal king” (Los Angeles Times). HARDY soared to new heights in 2023 with the release of critically acclaimed half-country, half-rock sophomore album the mockingbird & THE CROW, adding to nearly 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 2X platinum No. 1 “ONE BEER” feat. Lauren Alaina + Devin Dawson, chart-topping, platinum Dierks Bentley + BRELAND collaboration, “Beers On Me,” and game-changing 2X platinum duet “wait in the truck” feat. Lainey Wilson. He also kinged the rock radio charts with “JACK,” and Top 5 single “SOLD OUT.” He’s previously toured with Thomas Rhett, Morgan Wallen, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Cole Swindell, and more, and just announced his 15-date Quit!! tour, headlining amphitheaters and arenas across North America all summer.




Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Kip Moore recently released his fifth studio album DAMN LOVE, out now. Praised by Holler as “the best album of Kip Moore’s career.” Moore’s DAMN LOVE WORLD TOUR in 2023 saw more play sold-out headlining shows – including stadiums – in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, The U.K., Europe, and the U.S. Known as “one of country’s more thoughtful artists” (Billboard), Moore has toured the world earning acclaim and a rabid fanbase as an all-in performer in each setting, consistently selling out headlining shows internationally with huge followings. Praised by Noisey as “an uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders” Moore has blazed his trail, with “a bit more Southern rock than traditional country… to be a Kip Moore fan suddenly became a marker of your having a certain refinement in your country-music taste” (Chicago Tribune). Moore first splashed into the mainstream with the double-Platinum “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” in 2012, then followed up with three more best-selling No. Ones (“Hey Pretty Girl,” “Beer Money” and “More Girls Like You”).




A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, singer / songwriter and Mercury Nashville recording artist Travis Denning first made waves with the release of his Top 40 debut single “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs,” which has also been certified Gold by the RIAA. He celebrated his first No.1 and Platinum certified single with the “shadowy” (Rolling Stone) “After A Few,” from Denning’s debut EP Beer’s Better Cold, which debuted in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart. The track “Buy A Girl A Drink,” off the EP Might As Well Be Me is a candlelit confession that features Denning’s tender lyricism, marking Denning’s highest streaming debut to date. His song, “Strawberry Wine And A Cheap Six Pack,” is Denning’s second highest debut and has amassed over 7M global streams. Denning’s songwriting extends to other artists – he has co-written for Morgan Wallen, Michael Ray, Chase Rice, Jason Aldean, and Justin Moore. Denning has previously headlined his own “Heartbeat Of A Small Town Tour,” toured with Brother’s Osborne, Cole Swindell, Dustin Lynch, Alan Jackson, Riley Green, Dierks Bentley, and Jake Owen. With 800 million steams worldwide, Denning has been spotlighted for his head-turning sound and is making his mark withing the industry, being previously selected as one of CRS New Faces, an Opry NextStage recipient, and a CMA KixStart Artist. Denning’s debut full-length album will be released this spring. For more information, visit travisdenning.com.




Ella Langley is just the kind of maverick country music needs. She’s got a rafter-reaching voice, but she’s also a straight-shootin’ songwriter who pulls no punches when it comes to life, love, and everything else under the sun. Spiking her unfiltered true stories with unapologetic rock ‘n’ roll grit and unassuming pop appeal, she’s quietly emerged as a phenomenon with millions of streams and a growing fan base. Hailing from Hope Hull, Alabama, she tirelessly gigged in bars and at local festivals before relocating to Nashville in 2019. 

She built an audience on social media with a series of singles. Her songs “If You Have To” (2021), “Damn You” (2022), and “Country Boy’s Dream Girl” (2022) have continuously fueled her momentum with tens of millions of streams on each track. Simultaneously, she landed high-profile cuts behind-the-scenes. She co-wrote Elle King’s 2022 single “Out Yonder” in addition to four more tracks on Come Get Your Wife. As a formidable performer, she toured with the likes of Jon Pardi, Riley Green, Koe Wetzel, Randy Houser, Cody Johnson, and Jamey Johnson in addition to sharing the stage with Morgan Wallen, Lainey Wilson and Parker McCollum. Meanwhile, she made her debut at the Grand Ole Opry, and Spotify pegged her as a Hot Country Artist to Watch for 2023.Flexing showstopping vocals, a razor-sharp pen, and no filter whatsoever. 

She formally introduced her signature style on her 2023 debut EP, Excuse The Mess [Columbia Records / Sony Music Nashville]. The EP clocked over 120 million total streams in less than a year’s time, earning praise from The TennesseanWhiskey Riff, and more. Turning the page on her next chapter, she is named one of Amazon’s 2024 Breakthrough Artists to Watch and CMT named her to their 2024 LISTEN UP rosterElla will continue to stir up a ruckus on her 2024 debut album, letting everybody know what’s on her mind loud and clear.




Stephen Wilson Jr.’s journey from the hollers of southern Indiana to Nashville, Tenn. has been a winding road that’s taken many detours: He’s been an Indiana State Golden Gloves boxing finalist, a scientist, and a lead guitarist and songwriter in an indie rock band. In 2016, he ditched his laboratory nine-to-five and signed a publishing deal with BMG Nashville where his alchemic song craft immediately made waves, earning cuts from Caitlyn Smith, Old Dominion, ‪Tim McGraw, Sixpence None the Richer, ‪Leigh Nash, and more. 2023 proved to be Wilson Jr.’s breakthrough year, signing with Big Loud Records and releasing his debut double album søn of dad: a triumphant, genre-spanning set of 22 songs dedicated to his late father and given to the world on the five-year anniversary of his death. The album was named the No. 1 album of 2023 by Holler who called it “a record for the ages,” and earned a spot as one of the best albums of the year from Whiskey Riff, Wide Open Country, music critic Grady Smith, and Rolling Stone. Last year, he toured with Brothers Osborne, The Cadillac Three, Midland, Hailey Whitters, and The Lone Bellow, with debuts at the Grand Ole Opry, Stagecoach, the Ryman Auditorium, CMA Fest, and Red Rocks. This year, he’ll hit the road with HARDY, Brothers Osborne, and The Cadillac Three with festival appearances at C2C, Tortuga, Country Thunder, and more.
