Monument recording artist Walker Hayes impressed country music fans worldwide when he released his single “You Broke Up With Me.” It was catchy, hip and gave you one hell of a good vibe. His newest single? Well, it’s on the opposite side of the music spectrum and it’s one you won’t forget.
“Craig” is a true story of grace and kindness. It’s about a man Hayes met at church. It’s a story of struggle, of God’s grace. A gospel melody with a hip-hop inspired flow, Hayes paints a beautiful picture of his relationship with “Craig.”
It’s a unique track, it’s nearly genre-less. Pandora has it on many channels including Christian and Country. Hayes shows bravery with this single but most importantly he showcases artistry. He really defies all “rules” of the country music scene with this track. If you are looking for a song about trucks, short shorts or whiskey this isn’t the one. However, if you are seeking a powerful and moving track.. well you’ve come to the right place.
“Craig” is a graceful hymn that should inspire us all to be better. It’s a true picture of what Hayes is capable of musically. Hayes has broken boundaries within music and set the bar rather high. His music resonates passion and honesty. A fearless Hayes may have just delivered a number one hit with “Craig.”
