Steve Azar Single Sets Release Date for 'Hard Road'

Posted by Jacob Ryan on 02/22/2011

Country star Steve Azar is gearing up to release his highly anticipated new single, "Hard Road," on Monday, February 28. It's the third single from his critically-acclaimed Slide on Over Here album, which was released in 2009 on his independent label, Ride Records.   
"Hard Road" is the follow-up single to Azar's Top 20 smash, "Sunshine," which became his highest-charting hit last year and also produced a #1 music video. Azar co-wrote the tune with singer-songwriter, James House.  
"This is a song of hope," Azar notes. "We all go through hard times in life, but so often we get through them with the help of others. It's great to know that when the weight becomes too dang heavy, there's someone in your life to carry the load for a while."
"All of the strong relationships I've personally known have one common factor," Azar adds. "In the toughest challenges -- when the burden gets too heavy for one -- no matter what it is -- he other takes the wheel and carries them through for a while. This role will switch back and forth in a love's lifetime, but those that last are seemingly always the best at this most unselfish feat."
Throughout his career, Azar has charted dozens of hits including "Waitin' on Joe," "I Don't Have to Be Me (Til Monday)," "You're My Life," "You Don't Know a Thing," "Moo La Moo" and "Sunshine."
Azar is currently in pre-production for the music video of "Hard Road," which is expected to be completed in coming weeks.
"Hard Road" will be available for purchase at all major online music retailers including iTunes and Amazon.
