LAINE HARDY RELEASES BRAND NEW SONG
“TINY TOWN” TODAY
Studio and Acoustic Versions Available Now
Nashville, TN – July 10, 2020 – Rising country music star Laine Hardy released his brand-new song “Tiny Town” today, July 10. Both a studio version and a stripped-down acoustic track are available at https://smarturl.it/LHTinyTown. The “Tiny Town” acoustic music video is set to go live on July 17. Written by Michael Tyler and produced by Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett), the down-to-earth lyric rings with humble honesty coming from the Livingston, Louisiana (pop. 2,000) native.
YEAH THAT’S LIVING, LIVING IN A TINY TOWN
9 TO 5 AND 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
ONE OF THESE DAY I’LL ROLL ON OUT
HOME TO MY TINY TOWN
The new music is a welcome bit of good news, as the singer announced a Covid-19 diagnosis last month. The 19-year old is thankful for what has been a mild case and successful recovery.
“What a crazy summer. I am lucky to be feeling better and want everyone to stay safe and healthy out there. It is more important now than ever for younger people to step up,” says Laine. “Thanks for all the well wishes from my own hometown community and beyond. I’m grateful to still be able to get music out over the summer and hope you guys enjoy ‘Tiny Town.’”
Laine plans to continue his virtual tour with a second leg this summer. Tickets and information for last season’s winner of ABC’s American Idol upcoming digital dates are available now at https://lainehardy.bubbleup.live/.
The virtual performances follow a highly successful online tour, garnering over 2 million views spanning April and May around the launch of two brand-new songs. Music Row proclaims “(Laine) brims with sincerity on this love letter to his hometown” on “Ground I Grew Up On,” while “feel-good anthem” (Sounds Like Nashville) “Let There Be Country” dials up the fun. Both tracks, a definitive nod to Laine’s deep Louisiana roots, are now available on all streaming platforms via Hollywood Records/Industrial Media’s 19 Recordings. Newly released acoustic versions of the tracks, also produced by Michael Knox along with brand new videos, are available now at https://smarturl.it/GIGUOAcoustic/Vevo.
Fans can catch the day-in-the-life official music video for “Ground I Grew Up On,” which has racked up over a million views and counting, filmed earlier this year on the picturesque bayou in his home state at https://youtube.com/lainehardy.

About Laine Hardy:
A native of Livingston, Louisiana (pop. 2,000) Laine Hardy was six when he picked up his first guitar and later joined his brother playing in local clubs and bars for upwards of six hours a night, inspired by artists ranging from Morgan Wallen to Luke Combs and Elvis Presley to Mark Broussard. After winning American Idol in 2019, Laine focused on songwriting and touring, headlining shows in Denver, Indianapolis, Sacramento, Lexington, Minneapolis and more. While Louisiana is home, Nashville is where he is destined to be. There he met producer Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett) and the pair went to work on several new sides releasing in 2020. “Ground I Grew Up On” (Brandon Kinney, Josh Thompson, Brett Beavers) and “Let There Be Country” (Jason Afable, Steve Moakler, Tim Nichols) — released April 10 on Hollywood Records/Industrial Media’s 19 Recordings — tell the stories of Laine’s childhood on the bayou where on an average day you’ll find him fishing, riding his four wheeler, spending time with his family, dogs, and feasting on jambalaya or his Korean grandmother’s homemade kimchi.
