Hayes' popularity skyrocketed in 2020 due to the success of his catchy hit song 'Fancy Like.' This track immediately jumped to the top of the country mainstream pop charts.

According to Billboard, the song reached No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart in 2021.

This song helped him get a nationwide Applebee’s commercial AND a Grammy nod.

Now, the sensation will be returning to Iowa this summer!
