New Music Friday, baby!

What a week! This week is FILLED with highly-awaited releases, and we couldn’t be more excited to continue celebrating the new year with some of our favorite country music artists.

Country rocker HARDY released his brand new single today (January 12th) “Quit!!,” which references his 2022 ACM Honors speech where he was accepting the ACM Songwriter of the Year for the first time, explaining “somebody wrote quit on a napkin, I took it out of my tip jar laughing.”

This heavy-rock infused country anthem tells his full story including recalling his first bout of success with Florida Georgia Line and Morgan Wallen.

Worried about HARDY changing his sound? Don’t worry, not happening.

“And when it comes to the king / That’s the radio / If you don’t like my s–t / Don’t play it / I don’t give a f–k / I’m a still book arenas and fill ’em up,” he sings.

In support of this new single, the songwriter also announced a 15-date QUIT!! tour with support from Kip Moore, Travis Denning, Ella Langley and Stephen Wilson Jr. This tour will follow the release of this single, as well as his March 29th project – Hixtape Vol. 3 – a tribute project to Joe Diffie with collaborations with Post Malone and Wallen.

Tickets for the QUIT!! tour go on sale Friday, January 19th at 10am local time, and select fan pre-sales go on sale beginning Tuesday, January 16th. Check out the full list of dates at
