Growing in ‘Tiny Town’ Makes You a Winner Like Laine Hardy

by

Just hearing stories about a simple life in a small town in a small house somewhere can cause great joy especially for those who experienced it firsthand. That’s what Laine Hardy wanted to impart to us; his joyous childhood, simple yet happy life when he lived in Livingston, Louisiana, a tiny town where people like himself were raised before getting into the real world.

Joys of Simple Beginnings

‘Tiny Town’ is a song written by Michael Tyler Spragg and produced by Michael Knox which hopes to emphasize and highlight the uniqueness of small communities. It talks about the things it has, the kinds of people who live in them, their simple lives, and how everyone, including those who haven’t experienced the joy first hand, can grow to love the lifestyle.

Laine Hardy took a special liking to these types of songs as he shared in his recent interviews. His hometown has been etched into his personality and without it, he couldn’t’ve possibly turned out the way he is in the present. He also said that the memories of his hometown would always be considered as a permanent thing. The moments he once treasured will always be there in his memories and these would make him happy just by thinking about it.

Hardy’s inspiration for singing ‘Tiny Town’ will always be his hometown Louisiana, and his influence is just something he adds on to the music to further refine his craft.

A Window to the Past

But he’s not the only one who made music for his beloved hometown. In fact, he gathered up these songs to get him in the mood, and to probably feel nostalgic about Louisiana.

Hardy made a Spotify playlist that symbolizes the little parts of his hometown which played a big role in his life. Through these songs, he expressed that he feels like he shifts down a gear from his life as an artist into a country boy once again .
