‘Fancy Like’ Singer Walker Hayes Coming to Covelli Centre
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Country music artist Walker Hayes will come to Covelli Centre on Oct. 15, with opening act Parmalee.
Tickets are $58, $48 and $38, and go on sale at 10 a.m. April 29 at ticketmaster.com (fees apply) and the Covelli Centre box office.
An online-only presale will take place April 28 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.; use the password WALKER22.
The announcement of the Glad You’re Here tour comes on the heels of a breakthrough year for Hayes, filled with a Grammy nomination, five ACM Award nominations, a CMT Award nomination, and six nominations for the upcoming 2022 Billboard Music Awards.
The tour is the first in which Hayes will headline arenas. It gets its name from another first for Hayes, his forthcoming book “Glad You’re Here,” written with his best friend, Craig Allen Cooper.
Cooper’s name will likely sound familiar to fans. It’s the title of a Hayes song in which he
documents the day a pastor he barely knew – Cooper – gifted the Hayes family a car during a time of need. It helped the family through one of its toughest moments and led Hayes down his path towards finding hope in Christ. The book is set for release May 3.
Less than a year ago, Hayes released the smash-hit “Fancy Like” which catapulted him into superstardom. In addition to hitting No. 1 at country radio, the track held the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for over six months, and saw Hayes perform everywhere from the American Music Awards to the halftime show of the AFC Championship game.
His followup, “AA,” is holding firm on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Hayes recently performed it on this year’s ACM Awards and CMT Music Awards.
Hayes’ catalog of hits also includes “Don’t Let Her,” “90s Country” and “You Broke Up With Me.”
Parmalee, the Platinum-selling band of brothers, is one of only four groups since 2001 to earn three consecutive Top 10 singles from a debut country album. The North Carolina natives recently returned to the top of the charts with their No. 1 single with Blanco Brown, “Just the Way.”
