HARDY shared an impressive, rowdy cover of Puddle Of Mudd’s “Blurry” on Friday, May 21.
Co-produced by Joey Moi and Derek Wells, the “One Beer” singer channeled his inner rockstar with a rowdy cover of the popular 2001 hit, released via Big Loud Records’ Rock/Alternative imprint Big Loud Rock.
“I’m so excited for everybody to hear my version of ‘BLURRY,’” HARDY said in a press release. “I’m a huge Rock & Roll fan. That genre has so much to do with the way that I create music, and I wanted to get back to it by putting out a true-blue Rock & Roll song. I truly think it will show a new side of me that people haven’t seen before, and I’m very excited to see what everyone thinks.”
It comes at no surprise that the hitmaker’s country music is infused with hard rock as he grew up on Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, Nickelback and Puddle Of Mudd.
“BLURRY” remains one of his all-time favorite tracks, even as it celebrates the 20th anniversary of its release this year.
“Blurry” was 2002’s most successful rock song in the U.S. and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this October. The song is by Puddle Of Mudd, released on October 16, 2001, as the second single from the band’s debut album, Come Clean.
“HARDY is an undeniable Country music superstar, and if you’ve seen him live you know how hard he rocks,” Lloyd Norman of Big Loud Rock said in a press release. “We are very excited to work with HARDY and our parent label, Big Loud Records, to put out this killer cover of a rock classic.”
“Blurry” follows his current single “Give Heaven Some Hell” and his chart-topping single “One Beer.”
Additionally, HARDY will serve as direct support on Jason Aldean’s upcoming Back In The Saddle Tour, which kicks off on August 5th in Virginia Beach, VA, and concludes three months later in Tampa, FL, on October 30th.
