NEW MUSIC: WALKER HAYES | AA
Celebrating his first Number One still simmering at country radio — the grooving, dressed-down top contender for “Song of 2021″ contention, “Fancy Like” — Walker Hayes is striking while the iron is hot. The quirky hitmaker has announced he’ll release a full album in January and has also dropped a brand new single, "AA." On January 21, 2022, Hayes’ new LP will be called "Country Stuff The Album" and follows his six-track 2021 EP, "Country Stuff." The full-album package will include 13 songs in all, including his “Fancy Like” hit, plus the previously released “U Gurl,” collaborations with Carly Pearce, Jake Owen, and Lori McKenna and a re-imagined version of “Craig” featuring the Christian rock band, MercyMe. Plus, Country Stuff The Album will also contain Hayes's new single, “AA.” “I’ve been waiting so long to put out a project like this,” Walker says. “It has everything I love from the fun of ‘Fancy Like’ to the more personal lyrics in ‘AA.’ As an artist, it’s such a unique thing to be able to share all the different versions of you in a project, and that’s really what I tried to do here.” Hayes is set to appear on "CBS Sunday Morning" this weekend (November 21) and will also perform at the American Music Awards the same day. His Fancy Like Tour kicks off just after the album drops in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on January 27, 2022.
