Great news for Acadiana native and Atlantic Nashville recording artist Hunter Hayes! iTunes has released an exclusive live album for our 2012 CMA New Artist of the Year nominee. It will feature live performances of several tracks from his self-titled debut album. It will be available for 2 weeks only, so don't forget!

Hunter is also set to perform on The "Ellen" Show October 22, his second appearance. Since Ellen Degeneres is also a Louisiana native, they'll have a lot to talk about.

Congrats to Hunter on all his success, and we are crossing our fingers for him to win the "Best New Artist" award at the 46th annual CMA Awards on Nov 1.
