Growing up in Mobile, Alabama, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Walker Hayes[/lastfm] thought he was going to be a basketball player. As he grew older, Walker discovered a love of music and decided to major in piano in college. Still, Hayes wasn’t really serious about a career in music, and thought that he would just follow in his dad’s footsteps. Walker’s father, however, had a better idea.

Walker’s self-penned, debut single, “Pants,” is making its way up the country charts. His self-titled EP is available at all digital retailers now, with the album, Reason To Rhyme, expected to drop early next year. Look for Hayes to open shows for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Little Big Town[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Darius Rucker[/lastfm] before the year’s end.
