follow-up release to “Any Day Is A Good Day,” which scored Hayes her

Hayes noted of the track, “I had the hook ‘running out of memories’
in my head for awhile, and on the way to a recent songwriters’ retreat I
told the guys I’d like to write it while we were on the trip. We had a
melody for it before we even got to the cabin, and it all came together
pretty quickly. Memories – good and bad – we all have them; but
hopefully this song will help the listener reflect on those great ones!”
The song is the title track from Hayes’ new 5-track EP, Running Out Of Memories, which is currently available via iTunes and other digital retailers. Released in Nov. 2014, Running Out Of Memories features three songs produced by Bobby Terry,
as well as a remix of her previously released tune, “Me & Loretta,”
and a new rendition of the classic “Cotton Eyed Joe,” which was
featured in the family-film, Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2: Dakota’s Summer.
