Monument Records recording artist Walker Hayes is a singer/songwriter originally from Mobile, Alabama. His recent album Country Stuff The Album includes the RIAA 3X-certified Platinum smash hit “Fancy Like,” which has topped every streaming and sales chart since its release, spending a collective six months and counting at the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. It also hit the Top 5 on the Billboard’s Hot 100 songs and gave Hayes his first GRAMMY Award nomination as an artist in the Best Country Song category.
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 that original homemade video racking up more than 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’ newest 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. Written by Hayes, with multi-GRAMMY Award winner Shane McAnally and Luke Laird, and produced by “Fancy Like” collaborator Joe Thibodeau and McAnally, “AA” is one of 13 songs on Country Stuff The Album, which also includes the fast-rising pop/country bop “U Gurl.”
Hayes’ songwriter has led Billboard to praise his “personal, soul-bearing storylines; rolling rhymes; and Macklemore-like cadence,” and the Washington Post to write that “Hayes has broken into the mainstream by sounding different.”
The proud father of six has performed his music, including the Double-Platinum RIAA-certified hit “You Broke Up With Me,” to national audiences on Good Morning America, CBS Sunday Morning, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and the TODAY Show. Hayes kicked off his headlining The Fancy Like Tour in January 2022.
