In the emotional post, HARDY expressed his gratitude to Morgan for putting him in front of stadium-sized audiences and introducing his country-rock sound to new listeners.
After concluding the final show of Morgan's 2023 One Night At A Time US run in Houston, Texas, the Mississippi native outlined, “5 years of touring with Morgan Wallen came to an end last night. There’s so much I can say about how much it’s done for me and my career, but at the end of the day, it all ends in “thank you”. So, thank you“.
HARDY went on to stress his admiration for Morgan Wallen's achievements in recent years, “I love you like a brother and these have been the most epic 5 years of my life. And I hate the word epic. But damn it’s true. So proud of ya and everything you accomplished”.
The two country heavyweights have been close pals since they first began recording in Nashville, with HARDY having co-written a slew of Morgan Wallen's chart-toppers, including ‘More Than My Hometown’, ‘Up Down’ and ‘Sand in My Boots’. HARDY even appears in the video for one of Morgan's earliest hits, ‘Whiskey Glasses’.
With HARDY having now earned a range of prestigious accolades, including two coveted 2023 CMA awards, as well as completing his hugely popular Fall arena tour, it seems the ‘TRUCK BED’ maverick has outgrown his role as a supporting artist.
As fans keenly await details of HARDY's 2024 touring plans, with the singer-songwriter widely expected to announce another headlining run, we're hoping he still joins Morgan Wallen to perform ‘He Went To Jared’ together from time to time throughout the year, with the two undoubtedly remaining an electrifying combination.
