Nick Saban hosts country music star Walker Hayes after getting mention in his latest song

Walker Hayes is already known to college football fans, who have no doubt heard his hit "Fancy Like" — a lot — over Applebee's commercials during games last season.

Now, the country music star is turning his attention to Nick Saban and Alabama, name dropping both in his new song "AA."

Saban didn't seem to mind the mention, as he invited Hayes and his family to stop by for a personal visit.

Here's a bit of those lyrics and mention Saban and the Crimson Tide.

“And I’m just tryna keep my daughters off the pole
And my sons out of jail
Tryna get to church so I don’t go to hell
I’m just tryna keep my wife from figuring out
That I married up and she married way, way down
In Alabama where they love Nick Saban
Tryna write a song the local country station’ll play
Hey, I’m just tryna stay out of AA.”

Saban seemed appreciative when he heard himself mentioned in the lyrics.

Maybe no coach in college football history is as accomplished as Saban, who holds the all-time record with seven career national championships, six with Alabama.

He owns eight SEC football championships, nine SEC West titles, has coached 44 All-Americans and four Heisman Trophy winners, and comes into the 2022 season with an 88 percent win rate with the Tide.
