Guest’s Bio:

Charles Edgar Walker Hayes (born December 27, 1979) is an American pop-country singer. He has charted four singles on Hot Country Songs and has released two albums. Hayes has recorded for both Capitol Records and Monument Records, with his breakthrough chart entry being “You Broke Up with Me,” from his 2017 album Boom, as well his biggest hit, “Fancy Like,” a number one from July 2021 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart.

Hayes and his wife moved to Nashville in 2005, hoping to get in the country music business. He landed a job writing songs for a Nashville publishing company and then signed a contract with Mercury Records Nashville, though he was quickly dropped and moved to Capitol Records Nashville. In 2010, he released his first single, “Pants”. It debuted at No. 60 on the Hot Country Songs charts dated for the week ending September 18, 2010. Kyle Ward of Roughstock rated the single three-and-a-half stars out of five. Hayes debuted the video for the song in December 2010. Hayes also appeared on an episode of 19 Kids and Counting, singing a song he wrote about Jill and her now-husband, Derick’s, proposal. “Pants” and a second single, “Why Wait for Summer”, both appeared on an album for Capitol Records titled Reason to Rhyme.

Hayes co-wrote and sang guest vocals on “Dirty Side”, a cut from Colt Ford‘s 2014 album Thanks for Listening. He also co-wrote Rodney Atkins‘ late-2014 single “Eat Sleep Love You Repeat”. After losing his contract with Capitol Records, Hayes worked at Costco to support himself.

In 2016, Hayes signed a publishing and production deal with Shane McAnally and SMACK/RareSpark, through which he released two extended plays: 8Tracks Vol. 1 and 8Tracks Vol. 2.This was followed by his first single for Monument Records, “You Broke Up with Me“. It appears on his first Monument album, Boom. It would be his breakthrough hit on the Billboard charts. “Craig” is the album’s second single.

In August 2018, Hayes released a single titled “90’s Country”, whose song lyrics contain multiple references to titles of country songs from the 1990s decade.

On June 4, 2021, Hayes released the EP Country Stuff. One of its tracks, “Fancy Like,” became a viral hit through TikTok and reached number 20 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, becoming Hayes’ highest-charting effort to date. It was subsequently released as his next single to country radio and debuted at number 53 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. He currently lives in Franklin, Tennessee with his wife, Laney Beville Hayes, and their six children: Lela, Chapel, Baylor, Beckett, Everly, and Loxley. Their seventh child, a fourth daughter Oakleigh Klover died hours after birth on June 6, 2018.
