October 7, 2021 – Toronto, ON – Monument Records’ singer/songwriter, and country music maverick, Walker Hayes drops a new video for juggernaut single “Fancy Like” featuring GRAMMY-nominated superstar Kesha.
Shot in Los Angeles and directed by Rehman Ali, and produced by Magic Seed Productions, the video features Hayes and Kesha in a “Fancy Like” world of their own – tailgating, skateboarding, and dancing through the streets of LA. The video makes its broadcast debut with MTV and CMT on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV Biggest Pop, CMT, CMT Music and ViacomCBS Times Square billboards today.
Atop every country streaming and sales chart since release in June, “Fancy Like” has spent a whopping twelve weeks, and counting, at the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and is among the top 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Songs. At US country radio the track is in the top 5, and at Pop Radio, top 15.
“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,” shares Hayes. “I’m truly about as fancy as Applebee’s on a date night, so creating a video celebrating the simple moments in life — like watching a movie or drinking box wine — was important to us. Kesha and I each bring our own versions of ‘Fancy Like’ to this, and I love how it came together.”
“Fancy Like,” written by Hayes with Cameron Bartolini, Shane Stevens, and Josh Jenkins, and produced by Hayes, with Multi-GRAMMY Award winner Shane McAnally and Joe Thibodeau, is off his six-song EP Country Stuff. The EP features collaborations with Jake Owen, Carly Pearce, and Lori McKenna and displays the full range of Hayes’ creativity.
