American country music artist Wade Hayes to perform a free show on March 1 on the Lee Creek Tavern stage, inside Cherokee Casino and Hotel Roland.
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. The singer-songwriter has navigated a recently complicated journey, all while producing some of the most potent songs in his already impressive career. On March 1, Hayes hits the Lee Creek Tavern stage inside Cherokee Casino and Hotel Roland for a free show.
Hayes takes the stage at 8 p.m.
The star from Bethel Acres moved to Nashville in 1991 and has since produced 14 hits reaching the Billboard country charts, neatly packaged into five studio albums. Among his fan favorites are the No. 1 single “Old Enough to Know Better,” the No. 2 song “On a Good Night” and other hits, including “I’m Still Dancin’ With You,” “The Day That She Left Tulsa” and “What I Meant to Say.”
Hayes was nominated for Top New Male Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association in 1995.
In late 2011, Hayes was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Shortly after learning of his illness, he was inspired to pen "Is It Already Time," a ballad about his battle with the disease. He has been in remission since June 2012.
Hayes has since released his 2015 album, “Go Live Your Life,” featuring upbeat anthems that became part of his healing. His newest piece of art, “Old Country Song,” was released in June.
