Laine Hardy Facts
- He began learning to play the guitar at the age of 8 when he had managed to convince his parents to buy him his first guitar from the local Walmart.

- Hardy has affirmed that when he was 17 years old, he had been able to develop his confidence as a performer along with totally revolutionize his personal look and style. He had got rid of the teenage floppy fringe and the tracksuits and replaced them with smartly tailored clothes and a slicked-back hairstyle. He had even made the effort of correcting a tooth that had been damaged a few years back after a biking accident. Laine has gone on to reveal that his mother had been initially unsure of his new, grown-up look, and had tried to coax him into dressing his age but had eventually come around to his views and had begun to look at his suit as an armor he puts on to become a completely different person.
- Laine has a huge line of merchandise that has included everything from T-shirts printed with his catchphrase “Ain’t a Party Without a Hardy” to logo hats, guitar picks, koozies, phone grips, bumper stickers, as well as wrist bands.
