Walker Hayes

"Let's hear it for me!" Walker Hayes' response to his introduction was unique, but it's exactly why U.K. audiences are drawn to the utterly relatable singer-songwriter. It's true, two songs on the Spotlight Stage were barely enough to whet the crowd's appetite, but in that snapshot, we saw more of Walker's personality than any star to set foot on the same platform over the weekend. Performing his Top 10 "life-changing" hit "You Broke Up With Me" with pure enthusiasm, the loveable singer fist-pumped the air throughout, before playing "Beautiful," a song he built on loop pedal that incorporates all the wordplay juggling he's becoming known for. A hit at the 2018 C2C, it's only time before Walker Hayes returns to play a main stage.
