Livingston native and 2019 American Idol winner Laine Hardy is set to release two new songs Friday, the “Ground I Grew Up On” and “Let There Be Country.” The songs are a nod to Laine’s deep Louisiana roots. “I am so excited to finally be able to release this new music!" Hardy said in a news release. "I hope these songs give you an idea of where I grew up on the Bayou, running through the fields with my cousins and fishing on Lake Maurepas. Louisiana is always going to be in my heart, and I want to just keep making Louisianans proud. My family is all staying home together, including my cousin who is also my drummer. Makes sense to make some music while we’re at it. Really miss being on the road and can’t wait to share these new songs online.” Hardy is set to perform the songs live in a series of online concerts through May. The dates are available to LaineHardyMusic.com for the latest information.
