12 Walker Hayes Songs That ‘Fancy Like’ Lovers Need to Know
This list of Walker Hayes' best songs includes "Fancy Like," but it's not No. 1. Longtime fans of the singer-songwriter know him as a man who can make you cry as easily as he can make you dance. "Craig" and "Halloween" are two of his most emotional efforts, but the No. 1 song on this list is special because it combines everything he does well into one beautiful tribute.
The Alabama native is a new artist to some, but in reality, he's been scratching and clawing for well over a decade. Before diving into his best songs, it's important you know his story: A decade ago, the 41-year-old was a very different kind of singer. He struck out after just one album on Capitol Nashville and was all but banished from Music Row. With a wife and a quickly growing family, he took jobs wherever he could to pay the bills, but often came up short.
A battle with alcohol made this dark time in his life even darker. That's something he'll admit he still struggles with today. Hayes is one of the most honest songwriters in Nashville, as willing to talk openly about his demons and his family (six kids, plus one lost shortly after childbirth) as he is how he finds rhymes and beats.
