HARDY releases new song, “wait in the truck,” with Lainey Wilson, out now, August 26th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.
What happens when you combine the 2022 ACM Songwriter of the Year and New Female Artist of the Year? You get an instant classic.
HARDY and Lainey Wilson have teamed up together for HARDY’s new single “wait in the truck”. While it contains a sensitive subject matter, these two singing together is the perfect combination.
Written by HARDY, Hunter Phelps, Jordan Schmidt, and Renee Blair, “wait in the truck” showcases the singer-songwriter’s incredible storytelling talent. It tells the story of a man who is lost and runs into a woman who has been beaten up by her boyfriend. The driver goes to seek justice, allegedly shooting the abuser.
The ballad begins with an acoustic guitar that immediately makes you feel like you’re in a movie. The grim sound is intertwined throughout the whole track helping bring the story to life.
HARDY displays his astonishing vocals on the song’s verses while Wilson shows off her talent on the chorus. When their unique voices are blended throughout, especially during the powerful bridge, vocal magic is made instantly. Throw in an addition of a gospel choir and “wait in the truck” has all the segments of a true masterpiece.
“I don’t know if he’s an angel // Cause angels don’t do what he did // He was hell-bent to find the man behind // all the whiskey scars I hid // I never thought my day of justice // would come from a judge under his seat // But I knew right then I’d never get hit again when he said to me // wait in the truck.”
HARDY said in a TikTok on Wednesday that this is the best song that he’s ever written and we may have to agree.
