Written Recap by Program Manager, Mamie Shepherd
We found Dancing With The Stars’ next big contestant right here in Seacrest Studios – country star, Walker Hayes! The musician showed off his impressive dance moves, even his own version of the “Shiggy” during a recent visit to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN.
Walker answered patient questions, including a question about how his song, “Craig” came about. He told the audience in the studio that “Craig” was written about a man who was very kind to Walker and his family. He encouraged all patients watching to be Craigs.
After vowing to write a song about Ryan Seacrest, Walker sang his hit song, “You Broke Up With Me.” He even wowed the crowd with a snippet of Frozen’s “Let It Go”….in Spanish!
To top off the appearance, Walker acknowledged his good friend, Bobby Bones, who is currently a contestant on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. We just couldn’t “Let It Go” without seeing some of the hitmaker’s own dance moves! The studio erupted in laughter and clapping when Walker backed away from the microphone and gave us his own rendition of the Floss, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, the Texas Two-Step, and even a Dab! The score – 10s all around the room!
Patients left encouraged after Walker spoke of the importance of knowing it is okay to feel sad on days that are hard, but to remember that tomorrow is always a new day.
We can’t wait for Walker to visit us again! We promise to have more dance moves ready!
