|WADE HAYES BIO
Country music's power has always been in its ability to reflect real life, and few artists have a stronger gift for capturing both heartache and hope than Wade Hayes. In the past few years, the singer/songwriter has navigated a complicated journey that has produced some of the most potent songs of his already impressive career. Surviving stage IV colon cancer, not just once but twice, has given Hayes a unique perspective of the fragility of life and the strength of the human spirit. Those lessons learned are embodied in the songs on Go Live Your Life.
Far from being a heavy manifesto on pain and survival, Go Live Your Life is actually a vibrant tapestry that is both poignant and playful. The title track is an upbeat anthem that celebrates living life to the fullest while "Dirt Road" pays homage to his Oklahoma roots and "Remember the Alimony" is a tongue-in-cheek slice of advice to a friend on the precipice of another romantic mistake. "She is Home" is a tender love song about life's true priorities while "If the Sun Comes Up" is a powerful ballad about moving on. Anchored by Hayes insightful songwriting and brought to life through his warm, rich baritone, the songs on Go Life Your Life are steeped in country's best traditions yet have a contemporary edge.
In 1996 the members of country super group Ricochet watched their debut single, "What Do I Know", rise to the Top 5 earning the band the honor of the highest charting debut single of the year. The follow up single release, "Daddy's Money", became an immediate across the board hit, rising to #1 on the Radio & Records Country Singles Chart, the Gavin Country Singles Chart and the Billboard Country Singles Chart (where it stayed #1 for two consecutive weeks). The band's distinctive musical style and intricate harmonies earned them the recognition as one of the most popular vocal groups in country music, a mantle they still wear today
Now, more than fifteen years later, "The Hardest Working Band In Country Music" is still going strong. The band continues to create great country music, sung with the distinctive harmonies that are their hallmark. They log thousands of miles on the road each year thrilling audiences of all ages across the United States and abroad.
