“Fancy Like is a song that’s really just about me and the family. I’ve always written about what’s authentic to my life, through whatever ups and downs I’ve had in my career, so this one means a lot.”

“Absolutely, we are having the #1 party at Applebee’s. We’ve already decided that.”

“Country radio, you hung the moon. This is “the we” did it moment for Laney and me. No matter what I say, you won’t be able to know how grateful I am. Thank you for a hundred chances now I’m Fancy Like #1!”

Walker Hayes wrote Fancy Like with Cameron Bartolini, Josh Jenkins and Shane Stevens.

Fancy Like is from Walker’s fifth EP Country Stuff via Monument Records Nashville.

“This song came out of a conversation about the misconceptions that celebrities or artists live a lavish lifestyle, and it’s important for folks to know that’s not necessarily true. I’m truly about as fancy as Applebee’s on a date night.”

“17 years, 7 kids, 4 dogs, 2 gerbils, 3 record labels, 4 publishing deals, 3 managers, 1,000 heartbreaks and 1 #1 song. Was it worth it? Hell yes!”

The Fancy Like TikTok dance with Walker and daughter Lela gave the song a viral boost in the summer of 2021.

“We decided to make up a dance for Fancy Like and just popped it online and went out for a run. When I came back, I opened my phone and it already had like 300,000 views already. I had never had a TikTok go that fast. You could watch it blow up in real-time, just gaining views. It was mind-blowing.”

“It’s nice to know when you put out something that honestly, I just wrote about my family. There’s no pretentiousness there. It’s just who we are. When you get to be that honest and the public reacts, it’s a real magical thing. And the dances, that’s just me being a dad. I mean, that’s just how we roll around here.”

“One of my favorite things about this business is that the impossible can happen. You never know when it will, and we definitely didn’t know it was about to happen when we wrote Fancy Like! Our minds are blown and we are so grateful to play this game.”

A Fancy Like remix featuring guest vocals from Kesha was released on September 10, 2021.

Walker Hayes recently announced his Fancy Like Tour, with supporting act Mackenzie Porter, set to start January 27, 2022, in Grand Rapids, Mich.
