Singer/Songwriter and Monument recording artist Walker Hayes is one of Rolling Stone’s 2017’s “Country Artists to Watch” and one of CMT’s “New Artists You Need to Know.” Hayes is taking that momentum and delivering his single “You Broke Up With Me” to Country radio, with official adds on June 26.
With nearly 50,000 copies of the single already sold and over 8 million streams-and-counting, he’s heading into stations with impressive early fan engagement! The witty and unapologetic track, co-written by Hayes, Thomas Archer and Kylie Sackley, and produced by Grammy Award winner Shane McAnally, serves as his first release.
“Taking ‘You Broke Up With Me’ to radio is a dream come true,” says Hayes. “The Arista team is absolutely killing it out there. The early support we’re getting is unreal. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for this record.”
Hayes’ 8 Tracks Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, released in 2016 through SMACKSongs & Rarespark Media Group, is a collection of 16 songs he had written and recorded himself that garnered the attention and landed the singer/songwriter on Spotify’s Viral 50. The response attracted opening spots on country duo Dan + Shay’s fall 2016 Obsessed Tour, Bobby Bones’ Funny and Alone Comedy Tour and this fall’s upcoming Thomas Rhett Home Team Tour. This past January, Hayes delivered “You Broke Up With Me” to all digital and streaming platforms in tandem with a music video recorded in his recording studio, The Shack, just off Music Row, available here on VEVO.
