Hayes took to TikTok to clear up some hilarious misconceptions about his “Fancy Like,” lyrics and we can’t stop laughing. So, if you’re one of the fans who has been wondering who Maddy is, what the heck a Natty is and why Walker is squeaky squeakin’ in a truck bed all the way home — boy, have we got some “AHA!” moments for you.

“Yo. A lot of people lately been asking me, ‘Who is Maddy?’ And also a lot of people lately asking me, ‘What is Natty?’” Walker told the camera in his video. ”And even some people asking me, they say, ‘If the styrofoam is squeaking in the back, who is driving the truck?’”

Bless their hearts.

Walker goes on to sing a section of the chorus that goes, “Yeah, we bougie like Natty, in the styrofoam, squeak squeaking in the truck bed all the way home.”

He then explains, “So, it’s ‘Natty,’ with an ’N,’ that’s what we called Natual Light [beer], growin’ up in Mobile [AL],” he said, smiling. “I thought everybody called Natual Light Natty, and it’s not a very bougie beer.”

See, new Country fans — you learn something new every day!

“And um, let’s see. No Maddy in the song,” he says. “The squeaking in the back, that’s that’s um, that’s nothin’ dirty goin’ on there,” he laughs.

“That’s just what happens with a styrofoam cooler in a truck, if you’ve ever driven one around. It’s squeaks a lot, it’ll drive you crazy.”

Glad he cleared the air.
