FESTIVE TAKE ON HIS ORIGINAL SMASH RECORD “FANCY LIKE”
(Los Angeles, CA – November 10th, 2023) Today, country music maverick, Walker Hayes releases his new single “Fancy Like Christmas” via Monument/RCA Records. Listen HERE. A festive take on his original smash record, “Fancy Like,” this new version comes just in time for the holiday season. In celebration of the new single, “Fancy Like Christmas” merch is available now. Check it out HERE.
Speaking on the new single, Hayes says, “This is the most excited I’ve been about a song in a long time. From the moment this idea came about, it was off to the races. I’ve never re written a song before and I think this was the most fun I’ve ever had writing any song.”
“Fancy Like Christmas,” follows Hayes’ recent offering, the 8-song project, New Money, which gave fans what they’ve come to love from him – honesty. 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.
