Below are some facts about Hunter that may be helpful to you if you’re playing along. HINT HINT!!!
Good luck to ya!
1) Hunter was making music and rubbing elbows with some heavy-hitters in show business since he was knee-high to a duck. At 4-years-old, he appeared on Nickelodeon’s Figure It Out. He also appeared on national television where he performed “Jambalaya” with Hank Williams, Jr.
2) Hunter’s love of music and the visual arts brought him to the big screen at the tender age of 6. He played a child accordionist (how appropriate) in the 1997 film “The Apostle,” starring Academy Award winner Robert Duvall. Duvall actually gave Hunter his first guitar, one of the over 30 instruments Hunter would eventually learn to play.
3) Hunter played every one of the instruments you hear on his first studio album, Hunter Hayes. The current release, “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me,” is climbing the charts. The first four releases all broke into the top 10, with “Wanted” and reaching #1!
4) Hunter Hayes was released in October of 2011. That same year, superstar Taylor Swift invited Hunter to open 10 dates of her Speak Now World Tour.
5) Acadiana has watched Hunter grow into a fine young man and a brilliant musician. Fellow artists applaud his laser focus and dedication to his craft. He’s learned to play over 30 instruments and is headlining his own Let’s Go Crazy tour. In his spare time, if he has any, Hunter is pursuing his pilot’s license. We already think he can fly!
