Life is crazy for country music newcomer Walker Hayes. He’s climbing the country charts with his current hit, “You Broke Up with Me,” and his new album, “boom,” will be out Dec. 8.

Oh, and he and his wife, Laney, are now expecting their seventh child.

That’s right. Walker is already a dad to six kids — three boys and three girls — and they’re going to welcome baby No. 7 in 2018!

We caught up with Walker on the red carpet at the CMA Awards this week in Nashville. He tells Rare Country, “We’re on cloud nine. I don’t know how to express what all is going on.”

The Alabama native has been working hard chasing his dream of country stardom for many years now. The baby news really caps off what’s already been a stellar year for the Hayes family.

He says, “Baby No. 7. That coinciding with the single working, it’s just been a heck of a 2017. I think next year is gonna be even crazier.”

Now, that’s an understatement.

Congratulations on all your personal and professional success, Walker! It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
