HARDY ‘the mockingbird & THE CROW’ – Album Review

HARDY’s new album, the mockingbird & THE CROW is out now, January 20th on all streaming platforms. Take a listen and read our full review below.

There are singers, songwriters, and artists, HARDY is all three, an absolute superstar in the making.  While every one of his projects to date have been incredible, HARDY has created a brand new and innovative concept with his country-rock album. Today, the highly anticipated record, the mockingbird & THE CROW is officially here.

The seventeen-song record may be the most exciting thing HARDY has ever created. In a recent press release the singer shared, “’the mockingbird & THE CROW’ is, in my opinion, is the best thing I’ve made so far. I had a lot of time to get in the weeds making this record with some of my favorite people in Nashville, and it truly captures every part of who I am as an artist. I’m honored that I get to share it with you next year; can’t wait to hear what you think about it.”

The record combines HARDY’s love and appreciation for country music with his mutual feelings for rock music. Each of the first 8 songs signify his country-side, ‘the mockingbird’, while the last 8 songs are incredible rock songs aka, ‘THE CROW.’ Of course, the middle song, the title track is a combination of HARDY’s country-songwriter side and entertainer-rock side, making it one of the best songs on the record.

“I’m a mockingbird // Singing songs that sound like other songs you’ve heard // Like Friday nights and headlights on some backroad red dirt // And how Mississippi’s home // I’ve always been a mockingbird but // Now I’m a mockingbird with a microphone”

On the country side of the record, fans get a taste of the singer’s incredible skills as a lyricist, as he weaves words and phrases into stories that appeal to the masses. The songs speak to nostalgic times in life, as well as, around heavier themes such as alcoholism, the death of country music, and getting caught up in forgetting to show appreciation.

The opening track, “beer” is a letter from the drink to someone that maybe has drank a little too much, while “wait in the truck,” featuring Lainey Wilson has been dubbed a “murder ballad,” and one of the best songs to come out at the end of last year. Of course, the other country feature on the project, “red” with Morgan Wallen is likely to be one of the most listened to songs on the project. The twosome combine their talent to create a song about celebrating small-town living in a way that feels like a breathe of fresh air.

“I ain’t talking politics, I’m talking small town // And if you’re from one you know what I’m talking ‘bout // It’s everywhere I swear from the courthouse bricks // To a crushed bud heavy can fading in the ditch // Like the book of John, like a barn door // And heart your hands over cause you’re thankful for // Every shipped off soul that was born to fight // For a wind torn flag that’s blue and white And red”

Another stand-out track is “drink one for me.” In a recent interview, HARDY confirms that the beautifully crafted song was written intentionally from the perspective of the person who passed away in “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL”, off HARDY’s debut album. It is both heartbreaking and comforting, a combination that is not easy to achieve. HARDY chooses introspection yet again on his solo-write, “happy,” a song all about personifying the feeling.

On the rock side of the record, HARDY runs the gamut all the way too heavy metal music, featuring Jeremy McKinnon on the stage-ready, “RADIO SONG.” Softer rock songs like the “JACK” and “TRUCK BED” help to bridge the gap between the country songs and the heavier stuff. Both previously released songs showcase HARDY at his absolute best, both as a singer and as a songwriter. On “TRUCK BED” fans will appreciate the reference to his song, “BOOTS.”

“I woke up on the wrong side of the truck bed this morning // With a bone-dry bottle of Jack I was pouring // Damn, she got some nerve, when she kicked me to the curb // Guess you can say I got what I deserve // ‘Cause I woke up on the wrong side of the truck bed this morning, yeah”

HARDY continues to bring the energy on songs like “.30-06.” The song feels reminiscent of an old-school punk rock song from the 2000s, sure to entice every millennial in his fanbase. Similarly, “I AIN’T IN THE COUNTRY NO MORE,” feels like it could fit into that time too. Both songs will be exciting to hear live.

HARDY ups the ante adding more heavy singing and screamo to the later songs on the record. On “KILL SH!T TILL I DIE,” the singer combines country lyrics about things like hunting with a wild explosion of emotion and energy. HARDY continues that vibe on the final song on the record, “THE REDNECK SONG,” proving that the country and rock genre are a perfect coupling for his music.

the mockingbird & THE CROW is one of the most unique albums out there right now. HARDY authentically fits in with both genres and finds a way to blend them effortlessly in a cohesive project. The entertainer clearly cares about every aspect of his artistry, and it shows through all of the seventeen tracks. If you have not yet jumped on the HARDY bandwagon, what are you waiting for?!

If you’ve lost someone, HARDY’s “drink one for me” is the song for you…

HARDY’s sophomore project, ‘the mockingbird & THE CROW’ is out now, January 20th. Complete with 17 tracks, HARDY cuts the project in two halves, giving fans a half-country, half-rock album. Much like HARDY has continuously proved in his songwriting, each song possesses its own licks of lyrical genius.

For Country Swag, an immediate standout track on the project is “drink one for me”. Within almost all of HARDY’s songs, each has its own unique story within a story and “drink one for me” is no different. Upon first-listen, HARDY fans may recognize a similar storyline to “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL” off of HARDY’s debut album. While “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL” harps on singing to a lost friend in heaven, “drink one for me” answers from the opposite perspective.

“but if there’s one way to keep my memory alive til the day y’all meet me here // it’s drink one for me // just know I’d be there holdin’ one in the air // if I didn’t have somewhere to be” 

In our recent interview, HARDY confirms that the idea to write a response to “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL” was completely intentional for the project. “Once we had the idea that we wanted to write about somebody dying, we said we should write it from the perspective of the guy that died in “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL.” That was said out loud in the room. That was on purpose.” HARDY tells us. 

While the emotional and sentimental track ties the two stories together, for those dealing with grief of their own, the cleverly written lyrics may help to serve as a form of validation in all of those moments where you can’t help but wish that that person was there with you, drinking a beer. 

Listen to “drink one for me” on HARDY’s brand new album ‘the mockingbird & THE CROW’, out now. Learn more about the project in our full album review here.

5 Things to Expect from HARDY’s New Album ‘the mockingbird & THE CROW’

We chatted with country singer, HARDY about his new album, the mockingbird & THE CROW, out Friday, January 20th. Here are five things to expect from the upcoming project.

  1. The album may be a half country, half rock album; however, the mockingbird THE CROW will always be rooted in country music.

“It definitely was more freeing, but I want people to know although it’s half a Rock and roll record, it’s also a little bit of my take or my spin on country music as well, because if you really dig into the lyric, THE CROW side has a deeply rooted country lyric […] I kind of opened the door for doing the rock ‘n’ Roll thing, but it opened the door for me to do a country thing, country lyrics over a really rock ‘n’ roll sonic production.”

  1. HARDY is a co-producer on every single track on the upcoming project.

“Every project that we go into the studio, I have felt more free to speak my mind or throw out ideas. […] Joey [Moi] has taught me a lot about filling the space […] That’s something I have really picked up on, helping Joey with ideas for filling gaps, and I’ve definitely grown a lot with that.” 

  1. The album’s title track was the last song that was written for the project; and changed the title of the album.

“’the mockingbird and THE CROW’ was the last song I wrote for the record, and I did not necessarily have a title for the record. The record was originally 8 songs and 8 songs. […] We ended up just writing the whole song that day and it ended up being the last song for the record.”

  1. HARDY’s rock-heavy song, “Jack” was the first song he wrote for the album, and “happy” was the first solo song he wrote since 2013.

“The first song I wrote for this project was “JACK,” two years ago. And for obvious reasons, no one else was going to cut that shit. That was the minute that I was like this is cool, what do y’all think about this […] I had been wanting to try to get one by myself just to know that I still could. […] I had this weird idea about personifying the word happy and turning happy into a person.”

  1. “drink one for me” was written from the perspective of the guy who died in “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL” from HARDY’s debut album.

“Once we had the idea that we wanted to write about somebody dying, we said we should write it from the perspective of the guy that died in “GIVE HEAVEN SOME HELL.” That was said out loud in the room. That was on purpose.”

**Bonus note, HARDY shared that he WILL collaborate with Morgan Wallen & Ernest on a song in the future.

HARDY: New Music, New Album, New Tour

HARDY surprised fans with three brand new songs ahead of his newly announced, upcoming album ‘the mockingbird & THE CROW’, out this January, and a forthcoming tour. Learn more here.

As if we could not love HARDY anymore, the singer-songwriter surprised fans with not one, but THREE brand new songs. In addition, HARDY announced details for the release of his next studio album, the mockingbird & THE CROW, out January 20, 2023.

Joining the likes of previously released tunes, “SOLD OUT,” “JACK,” and “wait in the truck,” (ft. Lainey Wilson), the singer drops, “here lies country music,” “TRUCK BED,” and the album’s title track.

Fans can anticipate that the upcoming record will feature both country and rock songs. HARDY, not one to fit a mold, is shattering any thoughts of what he should or should not do. The title track, “the mockingbird & THE CROW” is the perfect song to describe this concept. Sitting at the number nine spot of the seventeen-song project, the song is the literal middle ground between country music and rock music.

Like, “wait in the truck,” “here lies country music,” is one of the eight ‘country songs’ on the upcoming project. The new track is a unique ode to country music, a perfect songwriter’s song. On the other hand, “TRUCK BED” fits in with its predecessors, “SOLD OUT” and “JACK.” Not to mention, fans are sure to go wild for the catchy melody and the “BOOTS” mention.

HARDY-JACK

HARDY Drops Brand New Country-Rock Song “JACK”

HARDY’s new song, “JACK” is out now, September 30th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.

In this new era of HARDY music, HARDY continues to prove why he is one of the best songwriters in the country music genre and one of the most entertaining performers. While “SOLD OUT” set the stage, “wait in the truck” ft. Lainey Wilson further proved that the singer-songwriter has what it takes to go the distance. HARDY’s latest release, “JACK” is just icing on the cake.

Featuring enticing lyrics and a rock melody, HARDY absolutely crushes this new song. Written by the singer with David Garcia and Hillary Lindsey, “JACK” is literally a personification of what alcohol can do to you.

According to HARDY, “‘JACK’ was originally written before ‘SOLD OUT,’ so it kind of got the ball rolling. He later shares in a recent press release, “I love the story it tells — it’s got some deep undertones about alcohol and how it can have a strong grip on people and can really bring you down. I hope people can kind of read through that lyric and understand it. It rocks, and I’m excited for the world to hear it.”

“Don’t listen to momma // Hell I ain’t the devil // Ditch me when you wanna // But if you need a little // I can fix your problems // Always got your back // I can make you famous // By the way my name is….”

We are huge fans of HARDY. He truly is single-handedly bettering the genre. With each release, he proves that country music can be gritty, fun, and meaningful. “JACK” is just another example of that to add to the entertainer’s growing catalog of music.

Written by: HARDY, Ashley Gorley, Hunter Phelps, Jameson Rodgers

“I Don’t Know About You” was Chris Lane’s second number-one single. Featured on Chris Lane’s sophomore album, Laps Around the Sun, fans gave this song an alias by this one lyric. “What’s your wrist tattoo bible verse say?”. It’s recently become a popular TikTok trend.

 

One Big Country Song” – LOCASH
Written by: HARDY, Ashley Gorley, Jesse Frasure

“One Big Country Song” was Locash’s second single from their third album Brothers. This track instantly will put you in a good mood.

It reminds everyone, that we all are going through similar things and when those things are difficult, we have to make the best of it.

 

“God’s Country” – Blake Shelton
Written by: HARDY, Devin Dawson, Jordan Schmidt

With “God’s Country”, this scored Blake Shelton his 26th number-one single of his career. The edgy song pays tribute to the land that God created and makes you proud of where you came from. Shelton has credited this track to re-energizing his career.

 

“Some Girls” – Jameson Rodgers
Written by: HARDY, Jake Mitchell, and CJ Solar

“Some Girls” was not only Jameson Rodgers first number one but also his first single sent to country radio. The emotional lyrics tell the story of a breakup in today’s times. From mentioning following someone on social media to late-night texts, this song is super relatable.

 

“More Than My Hometown”- Morgan Wallen
Written by: HARDY, Morgan Wallen, ERNEST, and Ryan Vojtesak

Friends supporting friends. Written by Hardy, Ernest and Ryan Vojtesak with Morgan Wallen, “More Than My Hometown” became Morgan Wallen’s fourth consecutive number one song. This was the first single off Wallen’s sophomore album, Dangerous: The Double Album. It may be a breakup song but such a catchy tune to sing along with.

 

“Single Saturday Night”- Cole Swindell
Written by: HARDY, Ashley Gorley, and Mark Holman

“Single Saturday Night” became Cole Swindell’s tenth number-one single. Written for his new album Stereotype, this track is a fun twist on finding your person.  With a shoutout to the popular hard seltzer, White Claw, it makes you think when will your last single Saturday night be?  

 

“Sand in My Boots”- Morgan Wallen
Written by: HARDY, Ashley Gorley and Josh Osborne

“Sand in My Boots” became Morgan Wallen’s sixth number one. It was his single that returned him to country radio. With more dialogue than most songs, it shows the true talent of songwriters as they know how to incorporate it just right.

 

“One Beer” – Hardy Featuring Lauren Alaina & Devin Dawson
Written by: HARDY, Hillary Lindsey and Jake Mitchell

This one is special for Hardy because not only did he co-write the song with Hillary Lindsey and Jake Mitchell, he is the lead vocalist. This was his first number one as an artist, showing the world he is one of many talents.  The fan-favorite track shares how a young romance can change in an instant.

 

“Beers On Me” – Dierks Bentley ft. HARDY and Breland
Written by: HARDY, Ashley Gorley, Breland, Luke Dick, Nicolle Galyon, Ross Copperman, Ben Johnson, Dierks Bentley, and Niko Moon

Claiming the 11th spot of HARDY’s number one hits, is his first track to hit number one where he is a featured artist on the song. Dierks Bentley’s “Beers On Me” ft. HARDY and Breland hit the number one spot in April 2022. The mega collaboration is a feel-good track that is relatable and fun.

 

Eleven number ones is incredible. HARDY has helped so many artists thrive and make a name for themselves. On top of being an award-winning songwriter, HARDY is continuing to stand out as a singer. We can’t wait to see what’s next in his career as we are sure there will be many songs to add to this down the line!

Dierks Bentley, BRELAND & HARDY Hit #1 with “Beers On Me”

Dierks Bentley, BRELAND, and HARDY’s song “Beers On Me” officially goes number one at country radio this week. Check out the #1 song here…

Back in July, Dierks Bentley floored us with a mega collaboration. The superstar shared the spotlight with two incredible rising artists, BRELAND and HARDY. The three entertainers impressed on “Beers On Me,” which is now the number one song at country radio.

“Beers On Me” is a feel good song! It is no wonder that both radio and its fans fell in love with it. Each artist brought something different to the song. Bentley provided the consistency, while HARDY brought the country-rock element to the song. BRELAND provided even more differentiation, adding a little bit of country-trap to the talking parts of one of the verses.

“Come on down // swing on by // Bring whatever’s been on your mind // Locals on tap / and bottles on ice // livin’ on feel-good standard time // My card’s on the bar // you’ve got nowhere to be // If you don’t come through // buddy, that’s on you // ‘cause the beer’s on me”

This is a major accomplishment for all three of the men. Congrats all around on the #1!
