Laine Hardy Biography
Birthday: September 12, 2000 (Virgo)
Born In: Livingston, Louisiana
Laine Hardy is an American singer, songwriter, and contestant on the currently airing 17th season of the reality singing competition ‘American Idol’. He had previously contested on the 16th season of the show but was eliminated during the Showcase Round. A Louisiana native, Hardy started singing when he was in his mid-teens. He would often go to the woods with his guitar and practice singing with no one around to hear him. When he heard that ‘American Idol’ was coming to New Orleans to hold an audition for the inaugural season of the ABC revival of the show, he decided to give it a try. While he did get through to the next round, he struggled throughout the competition, primarily due to the fact that he is a naturally shy person. After getting out from the competition, he went back to his hometown and began to work on his music even more earnestly. Since 2016, he has been a member of a group named The Band Hardy, and performing with them at bars, festivals, and fairs has helped him develop his confidence and skills. He returned to the show to play the guitar for one of his friends’ audition and ended up getting the ticket to Hollywood once more.
