If you’re a country music fan, there is a good chance that you know the fancy like dance. It’s a fun and catchy new dance that has taken over TikTok. It’s a dance that has been seen by millions of people.
It’s a dance that has also made its way into the Billboard charts. It has reached number five in country music this week. The song is by Walker Hayes. It is part of his new EP called “Country Stuff.”
The song’s rise to the top was helped along by a viral video of him and his daughter doing the dance. It has been viewed over a million times on TikTok alone. Copycat videos of other people doing the dance exploded on the platform, helping to make it one of the year’s biggest country songs.
But Hayes didn’t expect the song to go so big. He says that he and his daughter Lela put the routine together in 35 minutes, and had it filmed by his wife Laney. He originally thought the clip was a glitch, but when it passed a million views that night, he knew something special had happened.
The success of the song and dance has brought many opportunities for the singer. He has appeared on late night tv, had a endorsement deal with Applebee’s, and is headlining a show this summer. But what has meant the most to him is his kids. He has told stories of his children asking him for Christmas blow ups. He couldn’t afford to buy them at the time, but he promised that when they had a number 1 song, he would get them all their own.
