Walker Hayes Debuts Modern Day Love Letter “Don’t Let Her”


Walker Hayes just released his latest single, “Don’t Let Her.”

Written by Walker, with Andrew DeRoberts and producer/songwriter Shane McAnally, and produced by McAnally and DeRoberts, “Don’t Let Her” is both an uplifting and devastatingly honest song that chronicles a conversation between Walker and a hypothetical man taking his place if something were to happen to him.

In true Walker fashion, he decided to create an effusive list of qualities he admired about her, and then text her the composition. Later, in a writing session, he took the list of texts and crafted them into the modern-day love letter that is “Don’t Let Her.”

“I’m honored to be sharing this powerful and massive song about Laney. I was touring in the UK missing her and my family terribly so I started texting myself specifics about Laney,” says Walker. He continues, “Things that if somebody were to hang out with her, what would they need to know about her and then it kind of turned in to a letter to whoever would take my place if something were to happen to me. That’s what this song is about and I hope you guys can relate in some way,” he said in a release.

In the lyric video, it gives a heartwarming look into Walker and wife, Laney’s, long-lasting relationship – from meeting in elementary school to the beautiful family they now share together.
