Walker Hayes has a new single.
Walker has been kicking around for about a year on the country charts. He’s looking for that first single that can really break out on the charts. I think that of the three songs he’s released up to this point that the latest has the best chance to become a hit. Check out the new song Lovin’ A Woman by Walker Hayes.
Lovin’ A Woman – Walker Hayes
When was the last time you heard a good whistle in a country song?
It’s been done before and I think there’s room for a few more whistles in modern country music. It adds a little campiness to a country song, but there’s an organic nature to it as well. I like it.
Here we have Lovin’ A Woman, a song about learning how to live life. It’s about a guy that gets to ask a few questions and learn about what really needs to be learned and experienced in life. We should all listen to a little of the Beatles and have a little fun while also loving a good woman.
First off, the song is good. That’s the most important factor for a first hit single, obviously. There is a lot that needs to work for a new artist to break through on the charts and convince the country audience to give them a chance. The song has to be good or there is no chance of having an impact. Many good artists have come out with somewhat good songs and have fallen by the wayside never having had a hit single.
I think Lovin’ A Woman is different and it will get people talking. It’s important to have something that’s worth talking about. The song needs a good story for people to tell and the artist needs to have a good story as well. I think Walker Hayes seems to have that quality. He seems like an interesting guy.
This could be the break out single for Walker Hayes. He’s had interesting songs the last two times, but nothing seemed to work out. Now he’s got something snappy and fun. It’s a song about life and learning a few things along the way from your elders. I think Lovin’ A Woman has a chance to become that first hit single.
