On the heels of the continued success of his single “Fancy Like,” Walker Hayes is gearing up to launch a headlining tour.
Dubbed The Fancy Like Tour, the trek is set to kick off in Grand Rapid, MI on January 27, 2022.
The tour will visit cities such as St. Louis, Austin, New York and Nashville before wrapping up in Louisville on April 30.
Joining Hayes on the road will be special guest MacKenzie Porter.
“It has been so fun to watch everyone react to ‘Fancy Like,’ from Tik Tok, to Country Radio, to Pop Radio. I can’t wait to finally hit the road and play it live for the fans who have made it so big,” Hayes shared in a statement. “After almost two years with no shows, it feels so good to get back up on stage and see you all in person.”
“Fancy Like” made history when it leaped from No.17 into the Top 10 at country radio, making it the biggest chart jump into the Top 10 on the Mediabase chart in 17 years.
The track has topped every country streaming and sales chart since its June release and spent 16 weeks (and counting) at the No.1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs. It’s among the Top 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Songs, Top 5 at country radio and Top 5 at pop radio.
Hayes latest, release, “U Gurl,” is also picking up steam.
Written by Hayes, with Dylan Guthro and Jodi Guthro, and produced by Dylan Guthro, the catchy song is turning heads and making waves on streaming platforms now.
“With ‘U Gurl’ we wanted to capture that feeling when you look at your significant other and you just can’t take your eyes off them, yet in a fresh way,” Hayes said of the song. “I get that feeling every day when I look at my wife.”
Tickets for Walker Hayes’ Fancy Like Tour are on sale now.
