There are some songs that just seem to beg for you to show off your dance moves. Country singer Walker Hayes’ song “Fancy Like” is one of those tracks. The catchy tune and dance prompted a viral video of the singer and his daughter that quickly gained traction on TikTok. It also helped the song climb to the top of the country charts, spending sixteen weeks at number one and bolstering Hayes’ career even further.
The video of the father-daughter routine was a surprise to both Hayes and his viewers. He had posted the clip just to pass the time during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it ended up going viral. After just four days, the video had over 4 million views and inspired many others to create their own versions. It was so popular that it even caught the attention of Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager on TODAY who had to give the dance a try.
It also gained the attention of Applebee’s who decided to feature it in their commercials. Despite all this success, Hayes remains humble and grateful for the response to his song. He credits the success of “Fancy Like” to his family, especially his wife and daughter.
Now, he’s ready to put his new track “AA” out there for everyone to enjoy. He hopes to continue climbing the charts with more hits, bringing his unique style of music to as many people as possible.
