July 23, 2012 – Wade Hayes: My Battle With Cancer

Wade Hayes opens up about his battle with colon cancer and his road to recovery in this CW exclusive interview.

Wade, who scored his biggest hits in the 1990s with “Old Enough to Know Better,” “On a Good Night” and others, recalls that he was shaken by the news of his diagnosis, which revealed that the cancer had spread to different parts of his body.

“I had no idea that I was in that bad shape,” he says. But with the help of friends such as Kix Brooks and Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts, Wade was able to be treated by the finest doctors in the United States.

Wade is now cancer-free and is working on new material, including a song about his cancer ordeal.
