Walker Hayes just released his latest single, “Make You Cry”, available now, April 9th, everywhere you buy or stream music. Coming off his latest single, “Hope You Miss Me”, a tribute song to his daughter, “Make You Cry” is a love song to his wife. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
Walker Hayes has one of the most unique sounds and story-telling capabilities in country music. The way his songs reel you in forces you to pay attention to each and every lyric. Take for example, “Don’t Let Her”. This is a song that you can’t help but be happy about because it shows how immensely he loves his wife down to all the little details he shares about who she is and what she likes, even though it’s all in the event that something were to happen to him and her not wanting to move on to someone else.
“Craig” is another song that tells you so much about Hayes and his family in just three minutes. A song so essential to Hayes’ story, he named his charitable foundation “Be A Craig”, after the man who gave him and his family a car big enough for all of the kids to be buckled in when the singer-songwriter was struggling to make ends meet, raise a family, and chase a dream.
These songs and so many others are a testament to Hayes’ incredible songwriting ability. While they may not always have such a powerful message, his style remains true to his music, in each and every track, and how he writes and develops each of his songs.
Just like he always does, Hayes uses his witty play on words to make us think his song is about something completely different, similar to his most recent singles “I Hope You Miss Me”, “Trash My Heart” , and “Shut Up Kenny”. In “Make You Cry”, Hayes tells us about all the ways he loves to make the one he loves cry happy tears. Just like he did when he’d play guitar for her at 16, or when he proposed to her at 23, making her cry happy tears is one of his favorite things to do. He can’t get over how much he loves seeing her eyes fill with tears, because that’s when he knows he’s doing something right.
“I love to make you cry, I // Know I hit that right emotion, when your eyes fill up with oceans // Girl I love to make you cry, I // Know I’m really onto something, when that mascara’s running // Girl I love to make you cry”
