Current Single “Good With Me” Is Climbing the Country Radio Chart
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Walker Hayes releases new, 8-song project, New Money, out now.
New Money is Hayes’ first full length project since the release of 2022’s Country Stuff The Album, which became the only country record to be released and certified by the RIAA that year. The project also included smash hit “Fancy Like,” which made Hayes a GRAMMY Award nominee.
On New Money, Hayes, who has over five million followers across socials, gives fans what they have come to love from him – honesty. On the opening, title track, Hayes lets audiences into his living room, and shares a little of what he and his family have gone through they are today. He sings:
NASHVILLE MADE US EVEN BROKER
TWO JOBS, STILL PLAYING THE JOKER
IN A COVER BAND DOWN ON BROADWAY
GUESS I LEARNED TO DREAM THE HARD WAY
AND SO WILL MY SONS AND SO WILL MY DAUGHTERS
‘CAUSE THEY GET GOOD NIGHT KISSES FROM A FATHER LIKE MINE
WHO FOLLOWED HIS HEART
INSTEAD OF THE SHINE
This type of raw honesty can be seen across the project. On radio single “Good With Me,” Hayes marvels at how crazy the world has gotten, and urges people to find what brings them joy, not what divides. On “Taylor Swift” he shares what it meant bringing his daughters to see their hero, and makes sure they know he loves them, like they love her. And of course, there are odes to his wife Laney across every track.
Hayes has always sung about the fact that he is a simple man. Whether it’s a date night at Applebee’s, trying to stay out of AA, or keeping his blow-up Grinch in the yard till March, he just wants everyone to get along and be happy…and maybe laugh a little more. He has never changed who he is and what he sings about, and this new project is a testament to the superstar’s staying power in this industry.

After hearing many of these songs during Hayes’ headlining arena tour this fall, The Duck Buck Tour, the singer/songwriter is excited to officially share new music.
