Wade Hayes is now resting comfortably at home following his recent surgery for colon cancer. Hayes, 42, was admitted to Nashville’s Vanderbilt Hospital earlier this month after learning he was battling stage IV colon cancer. The hit singer-songwriter’s surgery went better than doctors expected it would, and they sent Hayes home on Dec. 17, just nine days after the extensive procedure.

Hayes was able to spend Christmas at home with his loved ones and is continuing to stay positive about what his future holds.

“I’m getting a little better every day,” Hayes tells Taste of Country exclusively. “I am very thankful for all the prayers and support. Please keep it coming!”

Hayes hit the country music scene with a bang in the early ’90s with his debut single, ‘Old Enough to Know Better,’ which topped the charts in 1995. His other hits include ‘I’m Still Dancin’ With You,’ ‘Don’t Stop,’ ‘What I Meant to Say,’ ‘On a Good Night’ and ‘The Day That She Left Tulsa (In a Chevy).’

In 2009, Hayes released his latest album, ‘Place to Turn Around,’ which he created without the help of a major label. The new album, as well as Hayes’ other four albums, are available through his website or here.
