Laine Hardy’s new song, “Authentic” is available now, July 23rd, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new track.
Country newcomer and 2019 American Idol winner, Laine Hardy released a brand new track today (July 23) called “Authentic.” This southern rock-inspired jam follows his latest single, “Memorize You.” Hardy performed the latter on The Bachelorette earlier this month.
Written by Jessi Alexander, Matt Jenkins, and David Lee Murphy, “Authentic” mentions some of the typical “good ole boy” hobbies, like driving a truck around in a field, wearing boots until they’re completely worn out, and sipping something strong out of a jar. You can hear the Michael Knox production on the track with its heavy use of percussion and electric guitar.
“It’s tried and true can’t buy it new // If you think you can you don’t get it // If it burns your lips when you take a sip // you’re gonna know that it’s authentic”
The Louisiana-native plans on having new music out this fall. He will hit the road this summer for festivals, supporting Toby Keith, and headlining his Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. He will also make his Grand Ole Opry debut on August 28. For tickets, visit his website.
