Walker Hayes Releases New Song “Y'all Life”
- Back in January, American country music singer-songwriter Walker Hayes released third studio album “Country Stuff the Album”.
It is his first album in five years since the 2017 album “Boom”.
The album reached No. 9 on the US Billboard 200, becoming his first top 10 album.
Following the album, he released a new song “Y'all Life” along with a music video on July 15, 2022.
The song is inspired by his childhood memories from growing up in Mobile, Alabama.
The track was written by Walker Hayes, Pete Good and Josh Jenkins with production by Shane McAnally.
The video was directed by Mason Allen and Nicki Fletcher. The clip features cameos by his close friend, Craig Allen Cooper, his six children, and his wife, Laney.
“'Y'all Life' is meant to celebrate life and living in the moment, even if that means things are a little messy… that just means you're busy living,” Walker Hayes says of the song. “Take me and my family for instance. We're normal people. We have a garage on the front of our house, we live down the street from a strip mall. Sometimes I leave the lawn mower in the yard; the blow-up Christmas yard ornaments stayed up way too long this year; there are bikes all over the driveway.”
- He continued, “We even got a letter in the mail about our weeds the other day. We're out here living life the best we can and it's chaotic, but it's ours and we're doing it with the people we love, and I feel like a lot of people can relate to that imagery in this song.”
He told Countrynow, “It's my life growing up, basically in a nutshell. Main thing growing up was church and football. That's what we were all about down in Mobile. When we wrote this song, I just wanted to give you that small-town atmosphere. There's an ice cream truck in it, takes me right back to municipal park in Mobile feeding the ducks with some wonky ice cream truck coming by. Love the images. There's a Grinch it, got James Harden in it, Dolly Parton in it, Olive Garden in it. But yeah, 'Y'all Life is just truly where I grew up.”
