Acadiana's own Atlantic Nashville recording artist Hunter Hayes will appear on the upcoming Elton John 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' tribute album, commemorating the 40th anniversary of the classic album of the same name. This is awesome! Hunter is one of nine artists on the cd, and will be singing the title cut. From "Hunter Hayes has done 'Yellow Brick Road,' played all the instruments and he blew my mind," John told a crowd of USC students and invited guests during a performance-and-interview event Monday night to promote his Sept. 24 Capitol release "The Diving Board.". The album will be released sometime next year - Way to geaux, Hunter!!
