Walker Hayes’s Family Featured In Hilarious Christmas Video
If you love the song Fancy Like, you are going to love this. Walker Hayes‘s family is featured in new hilarious Christmas video. Walker just gave his number one hit song, “Fancy Like” a Christmas Makeover.
The popular song that was released in 2021 has been upgraded to “Fancy Like Christmas”. You will recognize the songs melody, the lyrics have just changed and so has the video. Walker is known to include his family in his videos online, and this one is the best one yet.
This time Walker has classic Christmas themed lyrics anyone can relate to. “We fancy like Christmas round a fake tree.” Out with “country kisses on my lips without the Skoal in ’em.” In with “leg lamp with some fishnet hose on it.” These lyrics are awesome!
Where The Idea Came From
Walkers manager suggested that he do a Holiday version of his famous song a few years ago, ,but he kinda blew it off until this past fall. He started thinking about it and immediately ideas and lyrics were forming. Walker actually wrote this with the original co-writers of “Fancy Like,” Josh Jenkins and Shane Stevens. The Three of them come up with the holiday themed lyrics for Fancy Like Christmas. They did most of the song writing in a text exchange.
The new music video includes the entire Hayes family — including wife Laney and their six kids, ages 8 to 17 — all having “an absolute blast”
Of course Hayes made sure he mentioned his favorite restaurant chain. “Hopin’ Santa gonna leave an Applebees’s gift card.” And “bougie like Natty in the Styrofoam” is traded out for “bougie like blowups in the front yard.”
That line is especially important to him because of a promise he made to his kids. He promised his three daughters and three sons that they each could have their own holiday blowup — if he ever scored a No. 1 song. “Fancy Like,” a multi-week chart topper, allowed him to make good on his promise, and the family has since gone a bit overboard. Their front yard now sports eight blowups. How cool is that dad?
