Walker Hayes Releases A Tribute To His Wife: “Don’t Let Her”

Walker Hayes Don't Let Her


Walker Hayes is at it again with another hit on his hands, “Don’t Let Her.” No one ever wants to think about living life without their spouse, but with the way life goes, you never know what the next day will bring. Most couples talk about if they would be okay with their significant other finding love again if the worst were to happen, and while this track is about the love that Hayes has for his wife Laney, it’s also dedicated to whoever may take his place one day.

Written by Hayes, Shane McAnally, and Andrew DeRoberts, the song came about while he was over in the UK. The night before the writing session, Hayes was missing Laney and their kids, when he created a list of things he loves about her. The singer-songwriter sent them one by one to his other half in a text message, and the rest is history.

“Don’t Let Her” gives a clear depiction not only of how much love Hayes has for his wife but specifics that make her so special. The lyric video is filled with pictures from their relationship that started as a friendship in elementary school. They are the definition of #relationshipgoals.

“She don’t give 2 cents about money / Likes a little coffee in her honey / Let her sleep late as she wants / Home is her favorite restaurant / Don’t you dare come home if you’re hammered / Better watch your mouth and your grammar / She loves babies, hates glitter / You better shave before you kiss her / And if she ever misses me / Please don’t let her”

Hayes is currently on his ‘Dream On It’ Tour and will be making a stop at the Taste of Country Music Festival at New York’s Hunter Mountain, where New York Country Swag will also set-up shop for the third year, so make sure to stop by! Get your tickets here.
