Hunter Hayes – Spotlight Artist of the Week
Hunter Hayes is about to release his 2nd album to the country music world. Tuesday, May 6th, his album Storyline will hit store shelves. He started his career path at the tender age of 2. Yes, he was bitten by the performance bug at an early age. Apparently, this is what he was born to do.
His grandmother gave him an accordion at age 2 and at 4 he was appearing on local and national TV. He even performed for President Clinton at the White House when he was only 7 years old.
In 2008 he moved to Nashville where he signed a publishing deal to write songs, one of which was recorded by Rascal Flatts. Two years later he signed with a label to record his own music.
Hayes, opened tours for Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts and Carrie Underwood. With his self-titled album, he released singles, Storm Warning, Wanted and Somebody’s Heartbreak. His second release, Wanted, also helped him capture the youngest solo male act to top Hot Country Songs. He was also nominated for 3 Grammy awards in 2013 where he was the youngest ever to be nominated in those 3 categories.
2013 also saw the release of I Want Crazy and Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me. Invisible is the first release from his upcoming sophomore album. He’s young, good looking, hard working and not afraid to take risks. He’s but a mere 22 years old so I think it’s safe to say he’s got a long career ahead of him.
You can pre-order his album Storyline through his website.
