Talking with Wade
Helen - A lot of people don’t know Jack’s story (about his rescue dog). You told it beautifully and concisely in the song “Who Saved Who?” Would you tell it again for others?
That’s pretty much how it happened. I was on I-40 late one night. About 70 miles from my house, I’d stopped to fill up, and he was there just rummaging through trash cans. He just came up, jumped in the truck and sat down. He had a pizza crust hanging out of his mouth and obviously he’d been eating out of trash cans. He was really, really skinny. He had several holes, several open holes, and he was covered in ticks. I felt bad for him and worried about him. The people in the filling station said there was another dog with him and it had gotten hit on the highway. So I took him home and put some meat on him and got him all healthy. He turned out to be the best dog I’ve had in my life. That was about 10 years ago. He’s a great dog. He’s full of personality. He makes me laugh every day. He makes me want to kill him sometimes. (laughs, jokingly). That dog has been there through thick and thin. What started the song - he came up to me recently and I noticed how white he’d gotten and I thought ‘what in the world am I going to do if I lost him.’ When I started thinking about it, I thought of all the times I was sick and going through my treatments and I would still have to get out and walk him. Therefore, I walked him a long time, twice a day, with a chemo bag hanging off me. It helped me get better, start getting back in shape and it was good for both of us. He’s been a great dog and a great friend.
Editor's Note: Right off the cruise, Wade was on the Nashville Today radio show. He introduced "Who Saved Who?" to a great response. The program shot a video of his segment. You can see it on their facebook page:
Helen - What’s been keeping you busy lately?
I have this old house I’ve been working on. I’ve finally decided to sell it. I’ve been very busy with that. I want to build a house. I’m trying to buy a house to live in during the interim. It’s been an all day, every day thing. Finally things are falling into place.
Helen - How about the music side of it?
I’ve recorded a session a couple of months ago and the song about Jack is on there and several more. There’s a song on there I wrote with a female artist, named Danielle Lauderdale. She’s really good. There’s a couple of songs that I had written recently and for some reason I like them. So we’ll see what happens with it. We want to shoot a video on the song about Jack. I had no idea that song would generate so much interest. I wrote it for myself. I did it on the cruise, and I saw several people weeping in the audience. I did it at a little Opry show in Virginia. Somebody sent me the video of it and I looked and I hadn’t noticed that 2 of the band members were crying when I sang it. I didn’t realize that it would have that impact on people. We’re trying to shoot a video for it now, if we can find somebody to shoot for us.
Helen - Thanks for talking with us. I know you have a busy day.
Yes, I’m going to go hang a garage door.

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 and another pops up. Their copycat sites look real. Beware. 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.
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.
