Walker Hayes + His Wife Get Tackled Upon Returning From Grammys [Watch]
There are warm welcomes, and then there's what Walker Hayes and his wife Lainey received after returning home from the Grammy Awards earlier this week.
The "AA" singer trailed his wife as she entered the house through the garage. Video shared on his Instagram page shows that they barely close the door before daughter Lela comes bounding forward. She's followed by Hayes' five other children: Chapel, Baylor, Beckett, Everly and Loxley. Then the two dogs get involved — it's a scene!
The best part of the video may be when Lela shouts "Hello my Grammy loser" to her dad, but he laughs it off. At the 2022 Grammys on April 3, Hayes' "Fancy Like" was up for Best Country Song, but he lost to Chris Stapleton and "Cold." The couple still got to enjoy a trip to Las Vegas together, and they worked the red carpet pre-show. Look for Hayes to be back on CBS on Monday (April 11) during the CMT Music Awards.
"Fancy Like" is the viral hit from 2021 that went on to reach No. 1 on country airplay charts earlier in 2022 The decided fan-favorite inspired a viral dance and drove business to Applebee's restaurants in search of an Oreo shake, but it's not yet earned any country hardware. Hayes and his songwriting and production team also came away from the 2022 ACM Awards empty-handed. At the CMTs, he's up for Male Video of the Year.
Hayes is currently wrapping up his Fancy Like Tour. He'll begin touring with Kane Brown in May.
