Our good friend Dave Haywood from Lady Antebellum had to fly home for the birth of his child so they were forced to cancel tonight's show at the Allegan County Fair. However, I will still be playing and the show is now FREE with fair admission! For more info on ticket refunds click here.
This week, Joe’s new single “Hard To Be Cool” debuted as the #2 Most Added Country Song at U.S. Country Radio (Country Aircheck/Mediabase) with 48 first week monitored stations. “Hard To Be Cool” is the follow-up to Joe’s previous two consecutive #1 smash, GOLD-CERTIFIED hits, “Sunny And 75” and most recently, “Yeah,” off of his latest album CRICKETS.
“Hard To Be Cool” displays the same infectious, up-tempo vibe and flirtatiously fun hook that propelled both “Sunny And 75” and “Yeah” to reign atop the country radio charts, the latter for three consecutive weeks on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Earlier this week, Rolling Stone Country exclusively premiered the eye-catching new lyric video for “Hard To Be Cool,” (directed by Ford Fairchild and Christina Cooper) which playfully features a smoldering brunette (“Heaven’s Little Devil”) cooling things down in a snow cone truck on a hot summer’s day. Watch the lyric video here.
"It's surprised me how popular it is in the live show," Joe tells Rolling Stone Country. "That's a good indicator of what album cuts should be singles: when people are singing every word to it, and they get excited right after hearing the intro."
“Hard To Be Cool” was written by award-winning hit songwriters Rob Hatch (“If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away”/Justin Moore) and Jason Sellers (“Don’t You Wanna Stay”/Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson).
