Hunter Hayes Making New Music Over the Holidays

Hunter Hayes is taking some time off the road for the holiday season, but that doesn’t mean he’s sitting around idle.

The young rising star is actually working on some new music over his tour break, though he’s not pursuing anything too aggressively. “I just wanna chill,” he tells ABC News Radio. “I just got a little bit of time to be creative in my little studio at home. Got some writers that are coming out to hang.”

It’s been a busy year for Hayes; he released a new album, ‘Storyline,’ and hit the road for his Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, which took him all across the country. He admits it’s sometimes hard for him to slow down.

“I’m always wanting to be on the road,” he says with a laugh, “so for me to be away from that for a minute, make me miss it even more, is probably a good thing even though I don’t want to admit that.”

Hayes will also take time out of his writing sessions to do some charity work this holiday season. He’s scheduled to perform two intimate shows at the world-famous Bluebird Cafe to benefit Nashville’s Alive Hospice, the first taking place on Friday (Jan. 2).
