- Wade Hayes on Kicking Stage IV Cancer, Making Inspiring New Album
There's nothing like a life-threatening illness to serve as a wake-up call. Just ask Wade Hayes. After battling cancer twice in the past four years and being told he only had a 12 percent chance of survival, the country singer has emerged with a refined sense of priorities and a renewed passion for music that is evident on his new album, Go Live Your Life..... more

A PERSONAL NOTE
- The open heart surgery I had on February 5th was very sucessful. The surgeon told me family that it was boring and he liked boring. At each step of recovery, I've been told that I have done very well. A week in the hospital, 2 weeks hospitalized for inpatient therapy and 2 weeks of therapy after I got home. I still have some sternal precautions - especially a limit on how much I can lift. It takes the breastbone at least 13 weeks to heal. I can drive just fine. I am working on restoring my stamina. I'm feeling good, looking forward to getting back out there Wade-ing. I especially want to thank all of you for your cards and messages and especially your prayers. Keep them coming.
NOTES AND REVIEWS
Johnetta's Pub - Bowling Green, KY - January 31, 2015
We had a great time. It's a very comfortable venue. And what a supportive crowd! Randy Lanham and Wade make for a great acoustic show. Great music for sure! Some pics have been posted at the woww-pics site. Mine didn't turn out very well, so I'm waiting to get more from others.

In their review - "With apologies to Yogi Berra, it’s time to rediscover Wade Hayes for the first time. Place To Turn Around is everything that is great about indie records. Imagine hanging around your favorite honkytonk bar and hearing an artist singing great neo-traditional country music with acoustic guitars, fiddle and steel and buying an album at the side of the stage following the performance. And then imagine that the artist you were listening wasn’t some unknown band, but a road-tested Nashville songwriter and musician with many hits under his belt. That is the experience of listening to Wade Hayes brand new album" .. Read More
