Walker Hayes’ new song “I Hope You Miss Me” is available now, February 19th, everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
Walker Hayes’ latest song, “I Hope You Miss Me” was written for his daughter who he believes will go chase her dreams in Hollywood the second she gets the chance.
The song is a beautiful message from a proud and supportive parent who wants their child to chase their dreams even if it means they’ll miss them while they’re doing it. Hayes knows that his daughter’s dream is to be in LA and admits that he always knew that’s where she’d end up and that he knows people like her don’t get old with people like him. He hopes she gets every callback, gets her star on Hollywood Blvd, runs into J. LO, finds someone to run lines with and never gets homesick. He wants her to have the world and for it to be everything she ever dreamed of and more. Only after all of this does he hope she misses him a little along the way.
I hope you’re living out by the ocean / That’s where you always said you were going / LA baby on the sunset driving / City of Angels, you should fit right in / You want the part, baby go get it / can’t wait to see your name in those credits / I hope you find yourself but selfishly, I hope you miss me
Hayes’ latest singles include “Trash My Heart” and “Don’t Let Her”, another touching tribute but instead for another important woman in his life, his wife. In the beginning of the pandemic, NYCountry Swag partnered with Hayes and the ‘Be A Craig’ Fund to feed the front lines in NYC thanks to our “Kindness isn’t Canceled” t-shirt donations.
