25 years have passed since billy hardwick jr. released his debut album, "Too Country." Now, his sophomore project, "The Day Merle Haggard Died," proves that in the arena of traditional country music, billy is a force to be reckoned with. Penning all ten of the songs on the album himself, billy hopes that his new record has something for everyone. From the stone-country weepers, "Already Gone," and "I Ain't Seen Nothing Yet," to the rollicking "I Had A Dip," and "Warm Tortilla," the new album covers a lot of traditional country ground. "I like to write songs that not only tell a story, but hopefully make the listener feel connected to the singer in some way," says hardwick. "My goal in writing and recording this project was to make a well-balanced album that will prompt the listener to press "repeat" while paying homage to the country giants who sang the soundtrack of my life." If you still dig "real" country music, then check out billy hardwick jr.'s,

"I hope you will enjoy my new record as much as I enjoyed making it"
All My Best,
