The Hunter Brothers New Single "Hard Dirt"

Hunter Brothers Dedicate New Single “Hard Dirt” to Frontline Workers

Canada’s favourite band of brothers have released a new single “Hard Dirt”. They have dedicated it to frontline workers and everyone affected by COVID-19.

These down-home country boys from Shaunavon, Saskatchewan hit the ground running in 2016 and have been going strong ever since. This latest release from Hunter Brothers comes amidst a new normalcy we now call social distancing. You could say “Hard Dirt” is one of the direct results of the 2020 quarantine!

“Hard Dirt” comes out when our world is going through some tough times with a lot of uncertainty. This song helps us ease our minds and shows us that we too will make it through all of this.

It really grabs your heart strings right away and pulls you close. It’s an emotional feel good song that doesn’t disappoint our ears.

After their amazing performance of “Hard Dirt” at the 2020 CCMA Awards on September 27th, 2020, the band released a String Version of the song. This new version of the song is just as good as the original … and it hits a little differently. The strings elevate the tone and mood of the song, commanding the listener’s undivided attention.

“‘Hard Dirt’ is a song that speaks to the process of enduring struggle, but also knowing that hope exists on the other side of whatever circumstances you may be going through”, says Ty Hunter. As brothers, they also say they hope that this song will uplift our hearts, put a new fire in our dreams and encourage us to keep growing as not only individuals but as families and, more importantly, as a community.

“Hard Dirt” is dedicated to all the frontline workers who risk their safety to help keep our communities afloat and to all who are affected by this pandemic.

This single was produced by five-time GRAMMY© Award nominee Hunter Hayes.

The Hunter Brothers recently celebrated another great milestone. Their single “Those Were the Nights” off their debut album Getaway was certified Gold in Canada.

Be sure to listen to the brand new single and add it to your playlists.

Lyrics To “Hard Dirt” By Hunter Brothers

Bring on the heat
Bring on the sun
Bring on the clouds hanging over me, saying I’m the only one
Yeah, bring on the doubt
Tell me I’ll never be good enough

Bring on the hurt
Bring on the past
Bring on the memories of the pieces that I’m never gonna get back
Fine, I’m looking up
Cuz I believe in a bigger love

I grow better in hard dirt
I dig deeper when the river runs dry
Struggle makes me stronger
Keeps me reaching for the sky
You don’t know what the rain’s worth
Til it finds you out in the desert
Learnin’ how my heart works
I grow better in hard dirt
(I grow better in hard hard dirt)

Dreams keep me alive
Even when I’m weak and even when I’m barely getting by
Blood, sweat and tears put the fruit on the vine
Someday I’m gonna rise, someday I’m gonna shine

I grow better in hard dirt
I dig deeper when the river runs dry
Struggle makes me stronger
Keeps me reaching for the sky
You don’t know what the rain’s worth
Til it finds you out in the desert
Learnin’ how my heart works
I grow better in hard hard hard dirt

Blood, sweat and tears put the fruit on the vine
Someday you’re gonna see this heart of mine
Blood, sweat and tears put the fruit on the vine
Someday I’m gonna rise, someday I’m gonna shine

I grow better in hard dirt
I dig deeper when the river runs dry
Struggle makes me stronger
Reaching for the sky
You don’t know what the rain’s worth
Til it finds you out in the desert
Learnin’ how my heart works
I grow better in hard dirt

I grow better in hard dirt
I dig deeper when the river runs dry
Struggle makes me stronger
Keeps me reaching for the sky
You don’t know what the rain’s worth
Til it finds you out in the desert
Learnin’ how my heart works
I grow better in hard dirt
