At the age of 11, Wade received his first guitar, and was signed to his first record label. He also had lots of encouragement from his Dad, a professional Country musician.
It was a performance by Ricky Skaggs on the 1991 CMA Awards show that gave Wade Hayes the final inspiration he needed to move to Nashville to record some demos and write music.
In 1994 his debut single, “Old Enough to Know Better”, went to number one. More hits followed including, “On a Good Night” and “The Day That She Left Tulsa in a Chevy”.
