One may never know from the compelling and professional manner that Laine Hardy exhibited when he won American Idol in 2019, making him the Season 2 winner of the newly-renovated, famous singing competition. He has certainly kept busy with music since his victory just 14 months ago. Since then, he has released three singles, and two of those singles have acoustic versions. “Ground I Grew Up On” and “Let There Be Country” were released just three months ago, and set the record straight on what his home in Livingston, Louisiana means to him.
Now, Hardy continues to shine a light on his roots with a brand new single “Tiny Town”, written by Michael Tyler Spragg and produced by Michael Knox. This song embodies a small, country town where people love their neighbors and home-cooked meals are still in surplus. Down to the last strum of the guitar, “Tiny Town” paints a picture of living with the necessities and appreciating the little things like fishing and crowded chapels.
“Yeah that’s living, living in a tiny town / 9 to 5, on Friday nights wearing Main Street down / Yeah, just living, living in a tiny town / Hardwood floors and liquor stores, letters burning out / What I wouldn’t give right about now / To be back in my tiny town”
The simply beautiful instrumental is stripped down even more so in the acoustic version of “Tiny Town”, which is also available now. A music video for the song is forthcoming which, if it follows in Hardy’s previous approaches, may show off some more of his hometown and Louisiana-style activities.
“Tiny Town” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
