Walker Hayes celebrated the release of the music video for “90s Country” unlike any other artist has done before. He celebrated the premiere with fans and friends broadcasting live on Youtube at The Vault in Downtown Nashville.
He sang three of his songs “Dollar Store,” “90s Country,” and of course his hit “You Broke Up With Me”. He also answered some fan questions involving some of his favorite 90’s artists, fashion trends, and questions about the music video. He explained the writing process of “90s country” and the idea of how he came up with it.
“I and a girl named LRYX started the co-write. I kind of hand it to her because it wasn’t much of an idea except for the words “90’s country”. I think we left that day with the lyrics ‘You make me feel like 90’s country’ and the ‘Do you love me if you do’ part and the ‘Tractor’s Sexy’. After that, it took about two years to track it to make it what it is. I thought one of the co-writers, Shane McAnally, was going to break up with me because of how long it took,” Hayes laughed. “I’m just a product of the 90’s and I have this argument with myself all the time, was the music that great? Or were we just kids? The titles that I did mention, I hear those titles and I immediately go back to a place. I know where I was living, who I was with, and I just remember all those sweet moments and we hoped everybody did too when they listened.”
The music video was directed by Alex Alvga and shot on Old Hickory Lake just outside of Nashville. Hayes wanted the video to take him back to his own hometown feelings of growing up in the 90’s. He said he felt more comfortable this time around for this video because he was surrounded by family, friends, and his band.
In addition, Hayes announced he’s heading out on his first European tour with Old Dominion. Make sure you continue to check his website for dates and ticketing information. Check out Hayes’ new music video “90s Country” below.
