HARDY Joins The BCMF 2023 Lineup!


HARDY had the time and Darius made the space, ensuring an unforgettable Saturday evening for country music fans. This generous gesture from Rucker allows HARDY and his crew to keep the momentum going and deliver an unforgettable experience for Barefoot, HARDY, and Hootie fans alike.

A Mississippi-born singer/songwriter, HARDY has made a name for himself as a boundary-pushing country rebel, with three No. 1 singles as an artist and thirteen No. 1s as a songwriter. He is a 5X ACM Award winner, a 3X AIMP Songwriter of the Year, and the reigning BMI Country Songwriter of the Year. HARDY has collaborated with notable artists like Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, and many more, further establishing his reputation as a respected figure in country music.

Darius Rucker, headliner of the Barefoot Country Music Fest Saturday night show is a celebrated musician. He gained fame as the lead singer of Hootie & the Blowfish and achieved multi-Platinum status with their debut album. His transition to country music resulted in four No. 1 albums, 10 chart-topping singles, and an induction into the Grand Ole Opry. With a Grammy-winning rendition of “Wagon Wheel,” Rucker solidified his place in country music history. 

“We are thrilled to announce that HARDY, one of the hottest performers in country music right now, will be joining the star-studded lineup at the Barefoot Country Music Fest,” stated Bob Durkin of Southern Entertainment. “We extend our gratitude to Darius Rucker for making space for HARDY to perform on Saturday night.”
