Country artist and Oklahoma native Amber Hayes releases sophomore EP "Any Day Is a Good Day"

“Any Day Is A Good Day,” the sophomore EP from country recording artist and Weleetka native Amber Hayes, is now available via iTunes, GMVNashville.com and AmberHayesMusic.com.

“Any Day Is A Good Day” is the follow-up album to Hayes’ 2010 debut EP “C’mon,” which spawned two Top 40 singles on the national MusicRow Country Breakout Chart. The new seven-song collection, released through GMV Nashville/AOK Entertainment, features three songs co-written by Hayes: the spirited “Me and Loretta,” “Far Far Away” and the inspirational title track, “Any Day Is A Good Day.”

“I was really excited when we finished writing ‘Any Day Is A Good Day,’ because it has such a positive, encouraging message,” says Hayes in a news release. “The reaction when I perform it at my shows has been great, and I’ve gotten a lot of really touching comments from people about how this song has brought hope or inspiration to them in some way. I like to think of it as a reminder that each day is a gift and not to take it for granted. It seemed only fitting to name the album after this song.”

“Any Day Is A Good Day” was produced by Nashville-based producer Paul Compton and reflects Hayes’ maturation as an artist and as a songwriter. Since releasing her “C’mon” EP, Hayes has toured the U.S. with former label mate Ty Herndon and traveled internationally in support of her music. Among her overseas dates have been shows in China, Japan, Sweden and Diego Garcia military base in the Indian Ocean, among others.

Hayes has seen her music make the jump to both television and film in 2012. Three of her songs (including a duet with Lonestar’s Richie McDonald) appeared in the family film, “Cowgirls N’ Angels,” which opened in theaters this summer. The Oklahoma-made movie also marked Hayes’ acting debut in a major motion picture, though the singer has extensive theater experience. Hayes got her break in Nashville following her portrayal of Kathy Twitty in the 2008 musical, “Conway Twitty: The Man, The Music, The Legend… The Musical.”

“Cowgirls N’ Angels” is currently available on DVD. To read my May interview with Hayes about her experience with the film, click here.

The CW television series “Hart of Dixie” also tapped Hayes for her songs in 2012, placing music in five of the show’s Season 1 episodes. Her 2010 single, “C’mon,” and her follow-up 2011 single, “Wait,” are among the four songs featured in the series this fall.
