HARDY to Release Country Remix of “Truck Bed”

Riding high on the success of his massive monogenre hit “Truck Bed,” Hardy has announced plans to follow that up in coming weeks with a country remix, or re-imagining to be exact, of the smash release. The song, which was recently certified platinum for Hardy, and the first trap-country alt-rock song to reach the top 10 on the major country charts, will receive quite a makeover for this incarnation. 

Instead of the creeping guitar riff, there will be a crying steel guitar. The post grunge style nasal vocals will become a more note-bending drawl of the sort once employed by Lefty Frizzell. The heavy bass will be switched out with a 90s country style drum sound. There may even be some audible fiddle (possibly replacing the whistle in the original), clearly signaling a radical departure for the up-and-coming Mississippi boy.

Whether this release will continue Hardy’s winning streak is yet to be determined, but many behind the scenes are questioning the move. "Who's gonna play it? I mean, this thing is like, old-timey sounding and stuff," said Clearchannel country radio DJ Trey Turner. “Like from 1997 or something.”

"You can't G-walk to it for a Tik Tok; I don't like it," complained Kawntrygull56 on a short song teaser on Hardy’s Insta. Another comment went the other way with it. “THA GOAT don’t miss - making country music better than the legends! Waylon who??” Said Hardy fan PisswhereIwant. 

Hardy, for his part, maintains that this will play to a new demographic he hasn't reached before. "The people who actually like the organic, authentic-sounding stuff like Merle Haggard and George Jones..." said the musical enigma. “Maybe people will stop talking mean about me on Twitter now.”

I reposted the original of these on Facebook the other day and got taken to task for calling "Copperhead Road" and "Ode to Billy Joe" country songs. Fair enough, I spend half my time saying modern songs aren't really country, so I deserve it I guess. Anyway, here's a more accurate meme. These are all unquestionably country songs.

Little Known Facts: September '14

Lefty Frizzell was ambidextrous.

Creed's Scott Stapp considered making a country album but decided
against it because "the scene is just too douchey right now."

For every number 1 single Rascal Flatts has Gary Levox
celebrates by literally adding a notch to his belt.

Due to his reputation for making subpar music Chris Gaines decided
to make his comeback under the stage name Garth Brooks.

Justin Moore started singing country music after his "little luchador"
career ended with a mis-timed hurricanrana.

Thanks to quick actions from a bystander who applied pressure to the wound,
the man Johnny Cash shot in Reno lived until 2007.

Taylor Swift says she hasn't dated in over a year, so her next album
will be entirely about collecting cats and eating Blue Bell by the quart.

Little Big Town is a bad good band.

Each year, Lee Greenwood goes into hibernation
from November 12 through the last Sunday in May.

Sam Hunt is so country, he once got barbecue sauce on his vintage mesh yellow polo.

Jason Brown changed his name to Colt Ford to avoid being confused with his younger brother Chris Brown.

Despite FTM's constant jokes, Brantley Gilbert has only tried meth once and he didn't like it.
(Then he tried it 64 more times and didn't like it any of those times either.)

On the grounds of Toby Keith's Norman, OK farm/estate, there is a life-sized bronze statue of Toby Keith.
