American Idol 2019 winner Laine Hardy is at home recovering from Covid-19, but that’s not stopping the Louisiana singer from dropping a new song.
“Tiny Town,” written by Michael Tyler Spragg, extols the virtues of growing up in a close knit small town. The singer has been performing the song on the road and at virtual concerts. He told US99 Chicago back in March that the tune brings him back home. “I’m from a town of two thousand people,” he said, “And it just really connects to me and explains it really well.”
Along with previous releases “Let There Be Country” and “Ground I Grew Up On,” it seems that Laine’s debut album may paint a picture of small town Livingston, Louisiana where he grew up. All three songs–including acoustic versions–are available to download and stream.
“What a crazy summer. I am lucky to be feeling better and want everyone to stay safe and healthy out there,” Laine said in a statement. “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/.
Laine is releasing new music on Buena Vista Records, a Disney imprint that concentrates mostly on country music.
