When he’s not on dad duty as a father of six, country singer/songwriter Walker Hayes is busy building a skyrocketing career. Following the release of his third album, Country Stuff: The Album, the Mobile, Alabama-native has been on the road, bringing his growing number of fan-favorite songs to audiences nationwide.
Hayes is a hitmaker, striking gold with “Fancy Like.” The song has topped every sales and streaming chart since its release, spending a collective six months and counting at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country Songs Chart and hitting the top five on the Billboard Hot 100. The irresistible tune was certified RIAA 2X Platinum after just five months, and the track gave Hayes his first GRAMMY Award nomination as an artist for Best Country Song.
Propelled by the TikTok dance Hayes made to the song with his teenage daughter, “Fancy Like” has been used over half a million times on the app, with the video racking up over 32 million views and appearing in a national Applebee’s ad campaign. Written in response to fans thinking Hayes’ life was more lavish than their own, “Fancy Like” connected audiences across genres, and spawned collaborations with Kesha and Carin Leon.
Hayes’ release “AA,” is everything fans have come to love about his music – unapologetically honest lyrics, instantly catchy hooks, and stories inspired by his own life.
“AA” is one of 13 songs on Country Stuff: The Album, which also includes the fast-rising pop/country bop “U Gurl.” He partnered with “Fancy Like” producer, Joe Thibodeau, and co-wrote “AA” with multi-GRAMMY Award winner Shane McAnally.
You can catch him singing these songs live on his Duck Buck Tour in 2023.
