Walker Hayes Halftime Show Drowns Out CBS Anchors

As Twitter user Stephen A. Smith Burner’s Burner tweeted, “We’re getting a halftime show and a halftime show at the same time.”

Walker Hayes performed during halftime of the AFC Championship between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs game Sunday, with most of his performance drowning out the halftime analysis by CBS anchors James Brown, Nate Burleson, Phil Simms, Boomer Esiason, and Bill Cowher.

Speculation throughout social media was someone employed by CBS failed to adjust the volume levels between Hayes’ performance and the anchors’ microphones, resulting in frustration and comedy – including from the “Fancy Like” singer himself.

The performance came days after the release of Hayes’ fifth EP Country Stuff The Album, which inclludes “Fancy Like” and “AA.”
