Walker Hayes gives listeners all the feels with his new single, “Don’t Let Her.”
Written by Hayes alongside Andrew DeRoberts and Shane McAnally, “Don’t Let Her” is a sweet, yet devastating song that details a conversation between Hayes and a fictional man who might end up with his wife Laney if something were to ever happen to him.
As Hayes reveals in the exclusive clip above, the idea for the song came to him while he was touring with Old Dominion overseas. As he thought about how much he missed his wife, he began writing down specific things about her to include in the song.
“She don’t give two cents about money / Likes a little coffee in her honey / Let sleep late as she wants / Home is her favorite restaurant / Don’t you dare come home if you’re hammered / Better watch your mouth and your grammar / She loves babies, hates glitter / You better shave before you kiss her,” he sings throughout the chorus, which closes with the heartbreaking line – “And if she ever misses me / Please don’t let her.”
We recently sat down with Hayes, who revealed five things that fans may not know about “Don’t Let Her,” including what his wife thinks about a few lines of the song and which lyric was inspired by an inside joke between him and his longtime love.
