As if we weren’t excited enough to have new country stars Hardy and Morgan Wallen coming to Stars & Guitars in November (GO GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!!! Wink, wink!), now the two princes of the new hick country movement have teamed up, and boy is it a lot of fun!

In Volume 1 of Hardy’s new “HARDY HiXTAPE” YouTube collaborations, he and Wallen have put together a fantastic banger of a song, “He Went to Jared”. It’s the perfect anthem for a good ol’ Southern boy who lost out on the girl to a guy who was a little more “refined’ perhaps.

“He went to Ole Miss, I went to work. He pushes paper, I push the dirt,” leads off the chorus, while it wraps up with the ultimate kick in the gut, “He’s tying cans on the bumper of a car. I’m tying one on takin’ it hard. Thinkin’ bout I’m there with a white horse and carriage. Nearly three karats. He went to Jared…I went to the bar.”

The track is the first tease of HARDY’s surprise HIXTAPE VOL. 1 scheduled for release on September 13.

Check out the video below. Here’s hoping they’ll be performing this track together at Stars & Guitars in Fayetteville on November 18! And again, head to the Crown Complex TODAY to get your $25 tickets for the show starring Chris Janson, and featuring Kip Moore, Lauren Alaina, Wallen, HARDY and Russell Dickerson.

“He Went to Jared”

HARDY featuring Morgan Wallen

Written by HARDY, Morgan Wallen, Chase McGill

He Went to Jared Lyrics:
I STILL GOT A SHOEBOX FULL OF MONEY
SITTIN’ AT THE TOP OF MY CLOSET
FROM WORKIN’ LIKE A DOG
GOT A CHICKEN SCRATCH NOTEPAD
OF WHAT I WOULD’VE SAID ONCE I BOUGHT IT
TILL SHE CALLED IT OFF
NOW SHE’S PICKING OUT MENUS AND VENUES
AND DJS AND HIS CAKE AND HER CAKE
WHERE THE HONEYMOON GONNA BE
WITH A NEW DUDE WITH BUKOOS OF OLD CASH
I SWEAR THAT’S THE FURTHEST DAMN THING FROM ME

HE WENT TO OLE MISS I WENT TO WORK
HE PUSHES PAPER I PUSH THE DIRT
HE’S GOT THAT CLEAN CUT DRIVIN’ IN A CLEAN TRUCK
I’M JUST SITTIN’ HERE WITH A BEER AND MY JEANS TUCKED
HE’S TYING CANS ON THE BUMPER OF A CAR
I’M TYING ONE ON TAKIN’ IT HARD
THINKIN’ BOUT I’M THERE WITH A WHITE HORSE AND CARRIAGE
NEARLY THREE KARATS
HE WENT TO JARED I WENT TO THE BAR

I GOT MY OWN CEREMONY GOING ON RIGHT HERE IN THE NEON
WITH MY BEST MAN JACK
IT’LL BE A METER ON A DASH
SMELLIN’ BAD YELLA CAB TAKIN’ ME HOME
HE’LL BE IN A CADILLAC
ON HIS RIDE TO THE AIRLINE, SAINT LUCIA
NEXT TO THE GIRL I SHOULD STILL BE WITH

HE WENT TO OLE MISS I WENT TO WORK
HE PUSHES PAPER I PUSH THE DIRT
HE’S GOT THAT CLEAN CUT DRIVIN’ IN A CLEAN TRUCK
I’M JUST SITTIN’ HERE WITH A BEER AND MY JEANS TUCKED
HE’S TYING CANS ON THE BUMPER OF A CAR
I’M TYING ONE ON TAKIN’ IT HARD
THINKIN’ BOUT I’M THERE WITH A WHITE HORSE AND CARRIAGE
NEARLY THREE KARATS
HE WENT TO JARED I WENT TO THE BAR

MAYBE I’M DRUNK
AND IT AIN’T THAT BAD
CAUSE I AIN’T INTO GIRLS
INTO GUYS LIKE THAT
HELL NAH

HE WENT TO OLE MISS I WENT TO WORK
HE PUSHES PAPER I PUSH THE DIRT
HE’S GOT THAT CLEAN CUT DRIVIN’ IN A CLEAN TRUCK
I’M JUST SITTIN’ HERE WITH A BEER AND MY JEANS TUCKED
HE’S TYING CANS ON THE BUMPER OF A CAR
I’M TYING ONE ON TAKIN’ IT HARD
THINKIN’ BOUT I’M THERE WITH A WHITE HORSE AND CARRIAGE
NEARLY THREE KARATS
HE WENT TO JARED I WENT TO THE BAR
