Walker Hayes arrested by NBC Tonight’s Show with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday (October 27) to deliver the infectious energy of her hit single, “Fancy Like”.
Hayes was beaming with excitement as he took the stage to perform the crisp, fuzzy bop on national television.
“Yeah, we crave Applebee on a date / I had that Bourbon Street steak with the Oreo shake / Also get whipped cream on top / Two straws, a check, girl, I you have,», He sings in the anthemic, the refrain of well-being.
This appearance marked the long-awaited Hayes Tonight show start.
“So creepy. Rush. I never knew a 2 minute and 47 second song could go by so fast,” the singer shared on Twitter after his performance.
“Fancy Like” is Hayes’ debut single Country stuff EP. The six-track set, released in June, features collaborations with Jake Owen (“Country Stuff”), Carly Pearce (“What If We Did”) and Lori McKenna (“Briefcase”). In September, the Monument Records artist unveiled a new take on “Fancy Like” with pop superstar Kesha.
“Fancy Like” has spent the last 15 weeks at the top of Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs and currently ranks second in the Mediabase Country chart. The song went viral after Hayes’ daughter Lela choreographed and performed a dance with her father. Filmed on their front porch, the no-frills clip has racked up over 32 million views on TikTok to date.
Last month, Hayes also released “U Gurl,” the first new song after his Country stuff EP.
