BOOM. Walker Hayes’ long-awaited debut album is finally here. The country singer’s new record released today (December 8), is a compilation of 10 new tracks featuring his certified GOLD single, “You Broke Up with Me.”

“'boom!' It’s my favorite word. It’s what I text my team every time another station adds 'You Broke Up With Me'… It’s the first thing I say after I play a song from the album for anyone," shared Hayes. So, it’s what we had to call the album. I’m just so excited to share another part of the story. BOOM!"

Although most country fans consider Hayes to be a new artist, the 37-year-old has been working on his music career since 2005. According to Rolling Stone, he spent many years working at Costco while writing songs to support his wife and six kids.

Hayes' revealed to Rolling Stone that boom. is more of a diary than anything and hopes he will "have a reason to make another album." The project was produced by GRAMMY-Award winner, Shane McAnally

Walker Hayes will hit the road in 2018 for his 13-city Good As Gold Tour.
