Atlantic recording artist and Acadiana native Hunter Hayes is celebrating another career first this week as his current single “Wanted” has risen all the way to the top of the charts. The  No. 1 single is also his first to receive Platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) selling over 1 million copies. This is HUGE news!

Hunter also received his first CMA nomination for Best New Artist, and of course we will see him tonight on the ABC Special "CMA Music Fest - Country's Night to Rock". We couldn't be more proud of our Breaux Bridge superstar, and are so excited for the great things to come in Hunter's career.

Congrats to Hunter from everyone at home here in Acadiana, and of course, from all of us at 97.3 The Dawg!
