Songwriter HARDY announced that ‘HIXTAPE Vol. 2’ will be arriving soon.  HixTape Vol. 1 was released in 2019 and featured 16 artists including Morgan Wallen, Mitchell Tenpenny, Keith Urban, Lauren Alaina, and many more.  Hardy’s first number one as an artist, “One Beer” featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson, appeared as part of HixTape Vol.1

HARDY explained on the Hixtape Instagram page that Hixtape Vol. 2 will feature 14 songs and 33 artists/bands, however, HARDY will only be singing on 6 of the tracks, while the other tracks will feature the “most talented and rowdiest people Nashville has to offer,” according to the video clip.  Hardy explained in the clip: “I know a lot of y’all have been asking when Hixtape No. 2 is coming out. Look Hixtape No. 1 was awesome, 10 songs, 16 of my good friends, I sang every single song. This time we’re going to do it a little bit different. Get this, 33 artists and bands, 14-songs. Now, I’m only singing on 6-songs but the rest of the songs are awesome and it’s people singing that are some of the most talented and rowdiest people Nashville has to offer and here’s what we’re going to do.”

HARDY added that he will be dropping a new song from the upcoming project every Friday for the next 14-weeks saying, “I’m telling you right now, you ain’t ready for this one!” The first track from the project is expected to be released this Friday, September 10.
