About Hunter Hayes
Hunter Hayes' Storyline continues
It's been a huge year for Hunter Hayes. The four-time Grammy-nominated artist released his new album "Storyline" to critical acclaim back in May, debuting at No. 1 on Billboard's Country Albums Chart and No. 1 on Soundscan's Overall Digital Album Chart with nearly 70,000 albums sold in the first week alone.
Hayes' race to No. 1 came a week after he broke the Guiness World Record for "Most Concerts Played in Multiple Cities in 24 hours." He teamed up with ConAgra Foods for the 24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger, beginning the day-long concert 'tour' in Times Square in New York City, and ending at Philadelphia's Trocadero upon completing 10 shows in 10 cities in 24 hours.
On August 22, following a performance on the Today Show's Toyota Concert Series, Hayes officially announced his fall headlining tour the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, which kicked off October 30th at the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pennsylvania. Hayes' Warner Music Group labelmates Dan + Shay and The Railers signed on as supporting acts for the tour, which wraps December 13 at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario, Canada.
All ticket holders at Hayes' shows have been offered a customized LED wristband allowing them to be part of the concert experience. Utilizing Glow Motion Technologies, the bracelets have been a huge hit among Hayes' fans as the tour continues.
Additionally, Hayes is partnering with the USO to create special moments for troops and families at each show that will honor the military as part of the USO's "Every Moment Counts" campaign.
Hunter Hayes issues 'Storm Warning' for country music (Created May 22, 2013)
It's hard to say when the last time (was there a last time?) an artist left such a large impression not just on the country genre, but on music as a whole. But then again, it's been a long time since a debut artist like Hunter Hayes.
Where do you start when describing the talent level of a guy like Hayes? Using a phrase like "multi-instrumentalist" hardly seems fair when he's learned to play practically everything he's picked up since the age of two. What started with the accordion has become the guitar, the bass guitar, drums, keyboard and too many more to list (32 as of last count). In fact, he played every instrument on his Grammy-nominated, eponymous debut album -- a feat that's simply stunning, no matter the age and experience of the artist in question.
That aforementioned freshman offering, released in 2011, has produced three hit singles for the rising star. The first, "Storm Warning," climbed to number 14 on the U.S. Country Chart. Then came "Wanted," which went all the way to No. 1. It was followed by "Somebody's Heartbreak," which enjoyed phenomenal radio support on its climb up the charts.
Is there anything Hunter Hayes can't do? You're talking about a kid who received his first guitar from actor Robert Duvall, performed for President Bill Clinton at the White House, and has already opened for the likes of Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood. And, oh yeah, became the youngest member of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame two days shy of his 21st birthday.
Hayes began appearing on the opening act of 90+ dates for Underwood's "Blown Away Tour" on September 14, 2012. He was also nominated for three Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, at the 2013 Grammy Awards. His album's fourth single, "I Want Crazy" was released to radio April 7, 2013.
