Hardy introduces guitar-smashing ‘Jack’ video

Country star releases rock song

Introducing a friend, critically acclaimed Mississippi singer-songwriter Hardy unleashes “Jack” via Big Loud Rock. Written by Hardy, David Garcia, and Hillary Lindsey and produced by Joey Moi with co-production by Derek Wells, Hardy, and David Garcia, the song has a new bag of tricks on the full-throttle electric sprint – the first true rock song he’s released.

“’Jack’ was originally written before ‘Sold Out,’ so it kind of got the ball rolling,” the country superstar says. “I love the story it tells — it’s got some deep undertones about alcohol and how it can have a strong grip on people and can really bring you down. I hope people can kind of read through that lyric and understand it. It rocks, and I’m excited for the world to hear it.”

The 2022 ACM Songwriter of the Year isn’t slowing down. Last month’s “Wait in the Truck” with Lainey Wilson sent shockwaves through the genre, earning early awards buzz. The single currently sits just outside the Top 30 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts.

Last week, Hardy ignited two nights’ worth of sold out crowds at Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena supporting Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous Tour, creating a country rock crossover moment with friend and Hixtape collaborator Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) on “Boots.”

This December, the 3x 2022 CMA Award nominee will embark on his record-breaking headline Wall to Wall Tour across the Southeastern United States, joined by Jackson Dean for the completely sold out run and “Blurry” hit makers Puddle of Mudd for one night only in Columbia, SC.
