Walker Hayes has been making music in Nashville for years and signed with the Sony label early on. He has had his share of success through the years, but 2021 appears to be his breakout year with his first chart-topper and internet sensation “Fancy LIke” giving him a whole new lease on country music stardom.

We have gathered some pictures from Walker’s epic 2021, where he performed at last night’s (11/21) American Music Awards and more. We also share a few shots from years before his life got so “Fancy Like.”
