HARDY has announced his debut album, A ROCK, available on all digital retailers and streaming platforms September 4th.
Sharing the news exclusively with Rolling Stone, HARDY details the process of how the 12-track collection – entirely co-written by the ACM and CMA award-nominated songwriter – emerged as a years-in-the-making debut while developed and finished during this unprecedented time.
Produced by ACM Producer of the Year nominee Joey Moi and co-produced by Derek Wells, with additional production on select tracks by David Garcia and Jake Mitchell, A ROCK features a diverse cast of Nashville’s elite songwriters – from mainstay hitmakers Hillary Lindsey, Jessie Jo Dillon, David Garcia and Ashley Gorley to hot-on-the-rise newcomers Hunter Phelps, Jake Mitchell and Zach Abend – and dives deep into every corner of HARDY’s influence.
