"One of the things that I respect most about my father is nobody’s ever met my father and not liked him. He’s one of the most likable human beings and one of the nicest human beings. He just taught me a lot about appreciating people. I don’t know how to put it into words, but there’s something about the way that he thinks about everything, and when he meets everyone, he’s just friends with everybody. One of my favorite sayings of his was ‘It doesn’t cost anything to be nice.’ It’s a habit … growing up in Louisiana I guess is part of that, but he’s definitely one of the most likable human beings and I definitely strive to be that. I want to be just like him in that way, for sure." - Hunter Hayes
