WALKER HAYES 

 

Monument Records recording artist, Walker Hayes, is a singer/songwriter originally from Mobile, Alabama.

 

His recent EP Country Stuff includes the RIAA certified Platinum smash hit “Fancy Like,” which has topped every country streaming and sales chart since its release, and has spent 8 weeks and counting at the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs. Called “the song of the summer” by the TODAY Show, the track is now in the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Songs. Propelled by the TikTok dance Hayes made to the song with his teenage daughter, “Fancy Like” has been used over half a million times on the app, with that original, homemade video, racking up over 30 million views and being used in a national Applebee’s campaign.

 

Continuing to break boundaries, a new version of “Fancy Like” that features GRAMMY-Award nominated, pop superstar Kesha, is out now.

 

Hayes’ debut album boom., co-produced by multi-GRAMMY Award winning producer and songwriter Shane McAnally, led Billboard to praise his “personal, soul-bearing storylines; rolling rhymes; and Macklemore-like cadence,” and the Washington Post to write that “Hayes has broken into the mainstream by sounding different.”

 

The proud father of six has performed his music, including “Fancy Like” and the Double-Platinum RIAA certified hit “You Broke Up With Me,” to national audiences on Good Morning America, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and The TODAY Show. Hayes has headlined multiple tours on his own, as well as joined the likes of Kelsea Ballerini, Dan + Shay, Thomas Rhett, and Old Dominion on tour.

 

TIGIRLILY

Tigirlily is comprised of sisters Krista and Kendra Slaubaugh. Though new to some, the duo has been touring since they were young teens across their home state of North Dakota, as well as South Dakota, Montana, and Minnesota. After relocating to Nashville, Tennessee they quickly became an in demand act, playing over 130 shows in 2019 and soon gained a large social media presence with over half a million followers on TikTok alone.

 

The duo has opened for acts such as Kane Brown, Lee Brice, Walker Hayes, LeAnn Rimes, Big & Rich, and many more. In May of 2020, Tigirlily was included in the global campaign for Keds shoes named “Progress: Whatever That Means” featuring women entrepreneurs from all over the world. In Feb. 2021 Tigirlily went viral with their song “Somebody Does” which debuted at #1 on the iTunes all-genre charts. It has since been streamed over 4 million times and has been featured on the Bobby Bones Show as well as Rolling Stone Country.

 

Tigirlily quickly signed a deal with Monument records and secured a publishing deal with SMACK Songs and Kobalt Music. In July 2021, the duo released their self-titled debut EP along with making their TV debut with an appearance on the “The Young & The Restless” on CBS. With new music on the way, and Tigirlily hitting the road, these sisters from North Dakota will continue to trailblaze.
