Walker Hayes’ New Album Set For December Release

Walker Hayes has set a Dec. 8 release date for his album, boom. Hayes wrote or co-wrote every song on the 10-track album, which was produced by Shane McAnally.

“’boom!’ It’s my favorite word,” explains Hayes about the new album’s title. “It’s what I text my team every time another station adds ‘You Broke Up With Me’… It’s the first thing I say after I play a song from the album for anyone. So, it’s what we had to call the album. I’m just so excited to share another part of the story. BOOM!”
