About those Wade imposters
Be Kind 

Bethel Acres Day - aka Don Hayes Day
The first Saturday in October, you want to be at the Bethel Acres Community Center. There's a BarBQ dinner at 4:30 and at 6:00 move out to the pavilion for some exception country music. Long time friends come together to provide a great entertainment for the evening. Wade will be there this year. Bring your lawn chairs and come on out!
For a pictue and notes from the 2017 event scross down on this page.

Talking with Wade
Helen - I know you’ve spoken and performed at a lot of conferences where there are caregivers, medical personnel and survivors and others going through some very difficult health instances. And you have many contacts with individuals in those situations. Tell us about that. 
Wade - People come up all the time and tell me about what they are going through.  I get emails from across the country from people who are battling cancer. I try to encourage them. They hear my story and notice that it is not the norm. I tell everybody, first and foremost, that I thank God for it. To me, he made it perfectly clear that he’s the reason I’m still around. I’ve talked with a lot of people and prayed with them and tried to encourage them the best that I can.  I just did a video for a lady 2 days ago about that very thing.  I certainly have a soft spot for what they’re going through. I’ve been in their shoes and it’s scary. 
Helen - More people are attracted to your story because it offers hope.
Wade - That’s the thing  I do mention in all of the speeches I give for people in hospitals and all kinds of cancer organizations - I had nothing but bad news when I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and knew that I was not going to make it through - then I met a man who had been diagnosed the same as me and was still alive years later. And just knowing that it could be done changed my life. That’s the reason I’ve been so open about my experience is to hopefully do the same thing for somebody else. It is a big tool when you’re battling - to have hope. I want to somehow do that for somebody because it made a big difference in my life. 
Helen - Hope is important. I thought  you had the most forward mindset anyone could have - buying and selling a house while going through chemo.
Wade - I look back and I had heard another piece of advice that helped me a lot.  That was, don’t think about where you are right now, think about tomorrow. Think what it’s going to be like when you get your last treatment completed and you’re finally free of this disease.  I did that as well.  I tried to stay distracted.  I remember a couple of different instances of working on houses with a chemo bag hanging off me, while I was wearing the chemo pump, doing manual labor. I did it on 2 different houses, as a matter of fact, one that I had sold and one that I had bought. That was me not being able to sit around and think about what was going on. Trying to stay busy and trying to move forward. 
Helen - I imagine it’s hard to get up the energy to do that.
Wade - It is, maybe the chemo didn’t affect me as dramatically as it does other people.  I was very, very fortunate that way. I lost some hair, but I didn’t go bald. And my hair turned really gray for a while and then the color came back. (chuckles) I did lose a bunch of weight and I looked pretty rough for a year or two. Everything has pretty much come back.  I will always be affected by what chemo did to me. I’ll always be in pain and there’s not a time when I’m not.  That chemo tears you up.  But I’m alive and I’m doing the best, as Dr. Berlin said, to live my life. 
Helen - What’s been keeping you busy lately?
Wade - Well, lately, besides touring and trying to write songs, I’ve been in the studio and we have gotten most of it done.   From what I’ve heard, it’s turned out really, really good. I’m excited about it. I wrote a bunch of songs on this record with Roger Springer. Some of them I wrote by myself and I did a couple of covers that will take people by surprise, I think.  It’s a lot more country than the last 2 records I’ve done. It’s what I love.  I’ve really made a conscious effort to write more of what I love instead of what was on my mind. It’s been a fun process and the band was incredible. It’s really an exciting record.  A couple of songs that I wrote with Roger turned out really cool. Roger is one of the most talented people I know and we really click. Roger does a lot of co-writing and he’s introduced me to a couple of young guys that he’s working with that are really good and trying to get a record deal. I hope they do so I can write some of their record. I would like to do that. That is one dream in my life, that I have not realized yet, is to have a song recorded and be a single by another artists. I think that would be very exciting.

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.

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.
