Walker Hayes celebrated the success of his first gold record off upcoming album ‘Boom’, with “You Broke Up With Me” accumulating more that 500,000 combined streams and sales.
“It is hard to describe how it feels. A Gold record,” says Hayes, “I am so grateful for the support from everyone who made this happen. I appreciate all the people who got on board with this project and this song. I’m so honored to have ‘You Broke Up With Me’ go Gold.”
Hayes was surprised with the plaque following an album release show at a private space in Nashville. As well as becoming the first gold single off the record , it is also climbing up the Country Radio charts and sits at No.14. The catchy track was penned together by Hayes, Thomas Archer and Kylie Sackley. The different sounding track has been welcomed into the country scene, with its rhythmic country lyrical sounding rap quality.
“Seeing Hayes break out by staying true to his unusual musical inclinations is inspiring to many in Nashville, as artists typically have to prove themselves radio-friendly before they can delve into less traditional material,” a comment was made in The Washington Post.
Fans can already pre-order ‘Boom’, where they will have instant access to “You Broke Up With Me”, “Beautiful”, “Halloween” and “Shut Up Kenny” off the album. Hayes recently finished up his time on Thomas Rhett’s ‘Home Team Tour’ which wrapped up last night (December 2nd). He will join Kelsea Ballerini on her Unapologetically Tour in 2018.
