Talking with Wade
Helen - It looks like and the way your calendar is filling up, that there’s more interest in 90s music now. Tell us about that.
Wade - We definitely have noticed a resurgence in the  90s sound.  It’s hard to believe it but young people are getting into the “good ole day’’ music. All of us from that era have noticed a big uptick.  
I’m seeing music with melodies and words that you can understand.
Yes, yes, it’s a big difference from the music that’s out now.  I was listening to some old Mark Chesnutt yesterday.  It’s remarkable how different that music sounded from what’s out today.  It’s just so musical and the lyrics are really good.  I’m very proud to have been a part of that era.  I’m glad we’re all getting busy again and we expect to be even busier next year. 
How are  your cows doing?
They are very pregnant and doing really good.  I’m trying to get stuff ready for them and I just bought a ton of hay and filled the barn.  It’s very expensive now. You can’t blame the guys who are selling hay.  They run diesel in their tractors and it’s costing a lot more.  It’s not their fault, it’s just the way things are now. It’s crazy.
You’ve had a busy schedule lately.
I’ve been very, very busy.  I had a few days off so I painted the whole outside of my house and built shutters for it. It looks like a completely different house.  It’s really nice now.  I’m getting ready to tear the master bath out and re-do it and build a new shower in there.  That’s what’s been keeping me very busy.  It’s a brick house and it took me a long time to prep it. I got a new roof put on it and new gutters. It looks nice. I look for a house with good bones and I go in and re-do it.  Sometimes I keep them 3 months and sometimes 3 years.  I expect I’ll be selling this before too long.  The county has gotten so busy, it’s nothing like when I got here. I’ve got 15 acres here and you think that would be enough, but I don’t think it is anymore.

About those Wade imposters on Facebook and Twitter
Wade fans - Heads up - Recognize those who are imitating Wade on Facebook and TWITTER.  Wade doesn’t reach out personally to anyone from his official facebook page. He doesn’t ask for money for any reason. It seems when one pretender is taken down, another pops up. Their copycat sites look real.  They copy pictures from his official page. Beware. Look for the number of followers. If it doesn't have over 140,000, it's a fake. Notify facebook and Wade’s management team if someone is trying to scam you. Wade's official Twitter account name is @wadehayes1.  Any variation on that is an illegal copycat. Don't be fooled. Lately, they've also been imitating his mother, Trisha Hayes.

Be Kind!
I’ve been asked to remind the members of this group that Private lives are PRIVATE, including Wade’s and anyone else’s. Persistent questioning of someone about private issues amounts to harassment. I’m asking those who feel they are being targeted with out of order questions and comments to send me names.

Wade's Official Web Site - includes a merchandise store

Wade and any other knowledgeable person will testify that Wade has some of the best, most supportive fans in the music industry. Your support of him and his music has lifted his Facebook Fan page to the stratosphere of over 295,000 followers. Way to Go! 
As Wade enters a new and exciting phase of his career, his management team wants to thank you for your past and your future support. You’ve been positive and respectful in your online comments and you’ve posted many great pictures. It is of immense help to Wade when you post your best pictures - without red-eye and without blurring. As you look at the pictures you plan to post, please eliminate any pictures that could be considered unflattering. They may well remind you of a special time, but think of them from the artist’s viewpoint. Wade is at his best now. Show him off, proudly!
Ask one of your local venues to book him. Get others to ask also. Talent buyers can email his manager, Mike Robertson, at mike@mrmmusic.com.  That email is for talent buyers, not fans. If you have questions, I'll try to get the answers. Reach me at wadehayesnews@comcast.net.
