I wasn't expecting this to hit me like it did b/c I can't relate but the way Walker brings you in, you can't help but cry. I also love the personalization you add to your videos.

The wife and I just passed up a chance to see Walker in Chattanooga a few weeks ago, all I knew of his music at the time was Fancy Like and AA. Missing that show is turning into one of my biggest regrets even if it would have meant having to sit through seeing Kane Brown, I guess we could have left before he came on. We should have gone. Call your local radio stations and request they play Walkers other songs besides Fancy Like and AA, though they are great as well, get his other music out there too.

Mr. Hayes helped us find two homes here in Mobile. I didn't know him that well, but he made a strong impression on my heart, hated to hear today that he has passed. When I first started hearing your songs about five or six years ago, Walker, I asked if the two of you were related. He smiled and kind of blushed, said, You've heard of my son? He was proud of you and your family, talked about what a good father you are. God Bless!

You are so very special. Right to the heart.
If you haven't heard Jimmy Buffett's early stuff, take a listen. His grandfather, a seafarer, was very special to him and influenced him greatly. The Captain &the Kid, Son of a Son of a Sailor, and others may resonate w you.
He is from Mobile and did time in Nashville. Wasn't accepted in Nashville and moved to the Keys and the rest, as they say, is history.
If anyone only knows his commercial stuff about 🍹and 🍔 and 🦈and 🌋, you're missing out on a lot.

I hope that your dad got to hear this before he passed, I really do.

I can relate to this... I hated my dad for being in the military and being away for so much of my childhood. I hated watching the news, every single time he sailed away on the med cruises. Always worried, never knowing if he was safe. Was a simpler, pre-internet world where letters were how we talked to the men serving half a world away. And now I became him, first chasing the flag when I enlisted into the Army. Then marching to the war drums when I fought in round two of his war in Iraq. And now I have my own sons and I get it. I just hope my sons will sometimes understand... and gods willing, I hope they can ignore the war drums and pick a safer profession. Maybe be that realtor or musician.

I'm from Mobile myself and remember seeing his Dad's adds and seeing his Dad in person at an oil change place. The guys there were telling him he could pull his van up into the garage but, he pointed out that it was too tall for the garage. He seemed like a nice man with good common sense. That's amazing to be listening to these awesome songs from his son.😊👍💖
Bless your Dad Walker and you all.🕯❤

This song Is so relatable 😭. As a homeschooling mom, me and the boys are always running for the door as soon as we hear the garage door open and hubby’s home health bag hit the floor. The kids def don’t get why dad has to “help old ladies” all day and not them (he helps whoever just came home from the hospital/rehab but they they that is just old ladies apparently).

This song hits the soul.. I lost my dad December of 2020. “Everyone says I look like him, walk like him, sound like him.” Song brings tears every time I hear it and all the great memories of my Dad. God Bless..

What a TRIBUTE to his father! The guitar doesn't fall too far from the briefcase...that caught me in my chest! Songwriters like this are special...Paisley, Urban, Stapleton*(rarified air there)....the ability to write summer party anthems, catchy tunes you can't get out of your head and to throw a Christian curveball...we need more of it! Keep God and family in the music you create! I don't go to church, but artists putting theirs into the music I listen to sure makes me feel like I'm there. And I'm grateful 🙏 🥲.

@WalkerHayes that's a beautiful song. As my Das worked and not much at home and I heard all the bad things my mom sad. But I get it he made sure his debt was paid and we would not have to suffer. And I look at my dad so differently now as he is 87 and all he sacrifice he wasn't the best at being there. But he was there he was not going to have nothing gevwas going to make sure he had all his kids set up he worked for the future not just living day by day. Sacraf8ce he made. I love my dad today I still hear my mom never satisfied but I see my dad sucome to the fact he can't work outside anymore but is at peace.

My dad was always my hero, even thou he was not the perfect dad! I found alot out as I got older. But he was a good man, even thou my mom did not realize that. I look back at 56 and realized I am alot like him in so many ways. But when I really truly look back he was the briefcase. Love you dad for all you tryed to be. I miss you !!!

So absolutely sad that stupid songs about stupid crap like Applebees are the ones that blow up and the gorgeous, heartfelt, well written art like these are the ones that go under the radar like nothing. You can definitely blame the that wonderful ignorant country fanbase for that. Sheesh.

I think every parent can relate to this song. For me it was a suitcase. Whenever my kids saw it they knew I had another trip. One morning at oh dark hundred as I was making sure I had everything and realizing my work ID was not in it’s usual spot, I thought to check the tee pee where the toys were and there it was. Looking up at me. Right where my 3 year old had left it. I said a prayer of thanks and slipped out the door to work. I am retired now. I love the reality of Walker Hayes’s songs and how they touch our hearts.
