Viral ‘Hawk Tuah’ Girl Joins Zach Bryan Onstage in Nashville

In a delightful blend of internet fame and country music stardom, Hailey Welch, widely known as the “Hawk Tuah” girl, made a grand appearance on stage with country superstar Zach Bryan. The event took place at Bryan’s ‘Quittin Time’ Tour concert at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium.

Welch, who skyrocketed to fame with her humorous “Hawk Tuah” catchphrase, was personally invited by Bryan to join him during his encore performance of “Revival.” The audience erupted with excitement as Welch, dressed in white cowboy boots, cut-off jeans, a cowboy hat, and holding a drink, stepped on stage. Despite a few lyrical stumbles, she managed to delight the crowd with a special “Hawk Tuah” shoutout.

This appearance marked Welch’s first public outing since her viral video took the internet by storm. Even though she hasn’t profited directly from the video, her newfound fame has opened several doors for her, including the unique opportunity to be a one-night-only backup singer for Bryan. Her brand manager disclosed that Welch has sold over $65,000 worth of “Hawk Tuah” merchandise, likely the beginning of her journey to monetizing her viral catchphrase.

But Welch wasn’t the only highlight of the night. According to Rolling Stone, the Nashville concert featured a surprise appearance by Kacey Musgraves, who performed “I Remember Everything” with Bryan, making it an unforgettable evening for attendees. Bryan’s concert successfully delivered a range of guest performances, from rock legends to internet celebrities.

The collaboration between Welch and Bryan underscores the growing intersection between internet culture and traditional entertainment. Welch’s viral fame, sparked by a humorous Instagram interview, catapulted her onto the stage with Bryan, leaving everyone wondering where she might end up next.

Given Welch’s unique ability to capture the internet’s attention, there’s no doubt we’ll be hearing more from the “Hawk Tuah” girl in the future.
