New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Following an epic 2019, winning ABC's "American Idol" and a successful run of sold-out shows, rising country music star Laine Hardy is set to launch two brand new songs with "Ground I Grew Up On" and "Let There Be Country" available on all streaming platforms on April 10 via Hollywood Records/Industrial Media's 19 Recordings.
The biographical songs, written by Brandon
Kinney, Josh Thompson, and Brett
Beavers ("Ground I Grew Up On" ) and Jason Afable, Steve Moakler, and Tim Nichols ("Let There Be Country"), and produced by Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Thomas
Rhett, Eric Church) are a definitive nod to Laine's deep Louisiana roots, weaving the story of his childhood on the bayou.
"I am so excited to finally be able to release this new music! I hope these songs give you an idea of where I grew up on the Bayou, running through the fields with my cousins and fishing on Lake Maurepas. Louisiana is always going to be in my heart, and I want to just keep making Louisianans proud," says Laine. "My family is all staying home together, including my cousin who is also my drummer. Makes sense to make some music while we're at it. Really miss being on the road and can't wait to share these new songs online."
As announced by The Tennessean earlier today, fans can catch Laine performing live online on "Ground I Grew Up On Virtual Tour" with more than 15 online stops through the end of May. Laine will perform new music and chat with fans during each of the virtual tour stops.
