Walker Hayes isn’t a newbie to Nashville. He’s been around for a while working hard to make it to where he is today and he says the inspiration for his single “You Broke Up With Me” came from a few opportunistic people he encountered in Nashville, NOT  girl (like the song suggests). He says, “I’ve been around Nashville for 13 years. I’ve had multiple record deals, and have lost them. So when things are kind of going good for me now, there’s definitely people crawling out of the woodwork saying ‘Hey, you want to write again?’ and stuff like that. These are people that when things weren’t going so great, they didn’t really want to hang, they didn’t really want to work with me, they didn’t want to get the families together. Now that they’re calling, my attitude is somewhat of a ‘Hey, you broke up with me.’ I didn’t run from you, you stopped calling me.”
