Hunter Hayes

Hunter Hayes was a star at a very young age. The Breaux Bridge, La. singer appeared with Hank Williams, Jr. and chatted up Rosie O’Donnell before he left elementary school. He even played for President Bill Clinton at the age of seven! In 2008, he moved to Nashville to pursue country music and quickly found success writing songs for groups like Rascal Flatts. Within two years, he’d sign a record deal, and one year after that (Oct. 2011) Hayes released his self-titled, major label debut. ‘Hunter Hayes’ produced two No. 1 hits, including the triple-Platinum smash ‘Wanted,’ which went on to be nominated for several major awards.
