EDITORS’ NOTES

With refreshing honesty and a dose of attitude, Hayes writes breezy songs that buck country-music conventions. His music is a patchwork of beatboxing, sing-rapping, and coos, whistles, and whoas that’s more reminiscent of The Shins and Jason Mraz than country radio regulars. Nashville record executives didn’t get Hayes at first, and “You Broke Up with Me” is a triumphant heartbreak anthem about being rejected by the city before making it on his own. “Guess you don’t know what you want/Until you see I’m moving on,” he sings. “I know it’s difficult to see me on a roll/But hey, you broke up with me.”

Hmmm..

I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews. He's a great singer! Even though it's labeled under country, it doesn't mean that it's automatically bad just because it's different. Country is just a genre, but songs themselves are their own.

Wow

This is more pop then Chris Lane. This does not belong in country

Really?

What the hell happened to this once great genre? In a span of 10 years it has devolved from Alan Jackson and George Strait to whatever this is. It's certainly not country by any means. Just sad
