Earlier this week, Hunter Hayes re-confirmed his fan loyalty by debuting his new music video for his single “Wanted” exclusively to his fans via live video chat. He tells fans, “I’m so excited and proud of this video. We wanted to show a visual representation of the writing process of this song, and a sort of glimpse into the inspiration behind “Wanted”.” The video, directed by BirdMachineBird (Mindy Smith, Patty Griffin), features Hunter in a black and white editorial setting and uses splashes of red to accentuate its romantic story line while bringing life to the lyrics and creating an emotional experience for the viewer. The music video was released on www.HunterHayes.com and was immediately picked up by CMT and GAC, with bonus spins on CMT’s Top 20 Countdown. E! News will also be featuring his “Wanted” music video tonight at 7pm.
Hunter Hayes has also been nominated as ACM’s New Artist of the Year, which will air live from the MGM Grand this Sunday, at 8pm ET on CBS. He will be performing his smash hit “Storm Warning” and will also be presenting the ACM Lifting Lives performance of “Here’s Hope,” a song he co-penned.
Tomorrow night’s ACM Awards show is going to be great. I know everyone is very excited to see the show – and to find out who this years winners will be!
