Hunter Hayes is on my list. List of country artists I will be seeing between now and the end of the year, that is. I will have that pleasure on Friday night, Aug. 24, at the Appalachian Fair in Gray, Tenn. I am really looking forward to his show. Hunter is one of the most talented young people I have run across in a very long time. His current single, “Wanted,” is in the Top 20 and climbing. “Storm Warning,” also finished up in the Top 20 back in 2011. And with ACM and CMT award nominations already under his belt, it looks like a lot of very good things are in store for Hunter.
Apparently our ‘voting’ teens in America agree with me. Last night, Hunter won an award. It was the Teen Choice Award for ‘Choice Male Country Artist.” And it was the very first award Hunter ever won. But I do not believe it is the last award this Atlantic recording artist will be seeing.
If it’s possible to take to the stage the way a fish takes to water, I’d say that’s what Hunter has done. He started performing in front of people when he was barely six years old. And he’s done shows like Maury, Rosie O’Donnell, and Nickelodeon’s series Figure It Out. He was on “American’s Most Talented Kids’” when he was 13, and sang Hank Williams song, “Hey Good Lookin’.”
He has been on tour with Rascal Flatts, and opened for Taylor Swift during her Speak Now World Tour. He is also scheduled to open for Carrie Underwood during more than 50 of her dates on her Blown Away Tour starting later this year. I think we are very fortunate to have Hunter coming to our fair in August. It is going to be a great show.
If you’ve never visited Hunter’s YouTube channel, you need to. In addition to his videos, a really neat “Meet Hunter Hayes” clip, and a series he calls “For the Love of Music,” you will find a special thank you from Hunter to his fans who voted for him for the Teen Choice award.Watch his videos and you are going to find a kid who loves what he does.

Back with more later. Hope you are all enjoying your Monday!
