We had some fun with Nashville’s rising country star, Walker Hayes earlier this year when he joined New York Country Swag at The Refinery Rooftop for a signature Swag Session. Now, he is in New York City again to premiere his latest single on national television.
Our favorite country music dad, took the stage at Good Morning America earlier today, to perform his new single, “90’s Country,”. With a band to support him, Hayes utilized his signature swagger, as he sang the cheeky yet nostalgic lyrics to his soon-to-be hit. Our favorite part is the way that Hayes references some of the best 90’s country songs while still keeping his unique and modern twist on country music.
Hayes co-wrote “90’s Country” with Shane McAnally and LYRX, as well as co-produced the song with McAnally and David Garcia. The track itself showcases the songwriter’s play on words and pays homage to classic country songs, such as Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places”, Tim McGraw’s “I Like It, I Love It” and Kenny Chesney’s “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.”
The crowd at GMA seemed to love the clever lyrics, as they clapped along throughout the entire performance. Hayes continued to entertain the fans by putting down his guitar, and showing off some dance moves, as he moved around the stage. See the performance below.
The single is available for streaming or download across all major music platforms, here.
Hayes, who we named an ‘Artist to Watch’ back in 2017, will continue to play in cities across the United States throughout September and October. He embarks on his first European trek as a part of Old Dominion’s extended 2018 Happy Endings Tour, which starts in Dublin, Ireland on October 31st and continues through November 10th. Find a full list of tour dates on his website here and keep checking our calendar to see if the singer adds any New York dates to the lineup.
