This was followed in 2019 by the single “Rednecker”, and a second EP titled Where to Find Me. To support the EP, Hardy joined Florida Georgia Line on their Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour.
Hardy also co-wrote Florida Georgia Line’s singles “Simple” and “Talk You Out of It”, Blake Shelton’s singles “God’s Country” and “Hell Right”, “Drop” by Dallas Smith, Chris Lane’s single “I Don’t Know About You”, and Jameson Rodgers’ debut single “Some Girls”.
