Walker Hayes, "Craig"
The closing track on his new Boom LP and now his latest single, Walker Hayes' "Craig" was inspired by a real-life guardian angel that he met at church while he and his family were on hard times. The song's titular character goes above and beyond, gifting the Hayes clan a minivan when they need more room for their six kids. It's a simple, spare tune, given a half-sung, half-rapped delivery by Hayes over a stuttering beat and appropriately stained-glass organ, just the kind of a story to make a believer of a man like Hayes.
