The last time we heard from Walker Hayes it was with the song Shades. That song is really catchy and good and it caught on with people and made it pretty high up on the CML Chart. It was kind of cool to see that.
Walker has an interesting story in Nashville. He was part of a major label some years back, but couldn’t find the break into the mainstream. Now he’s been on his own and he released a couple of albums on his own. The first was earlier this year and now the second volume just came out and that’s where this new one comes from.
Break The Internet – Walker Hayes
With the freedom to do what he wants with his music it seems like Walker has found his voice and style. This one is pretty funky and builds on the songs you hear on the first volume of this collection. There are some funky lyrics and a really catchy melody.
It’s not traditional country, but we’re in a time in country music when you really have the freedom to try everything. It’s not guaranteed to work, but country fans are open to more and more today. That’s pretty cool and I think Walker Hayes has found something that fans are going to like.
The song has a fun concept. It’s kind of looking at the times when you can do something where you “break the Internet” like when a video of you doing something goes viral and everybody is talking about it all over social media and the whole deal.
It’s funky. It’s fun. I think it’s good.
