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.
Birthday: September 9, 1991
Top Songs: 'Wanted,' 'I Want Crazy'
Fun Fact: Actor Robert Duvall gave Hunter his first guitar!
The accordion is a tough instrument to play. But this 13-year-old handles it with ease, combining his crystal-clear vocals with a prodigy-level amount of talent, perfect for the show 'America's Most Talented Kid,' which he competed on.

The first-ever iHeartRadio Country Festival was a smashing success on Saturday (March 29) in Austin, Texas, featuring star-studded performances, a surprise collaboration, and even a little bit of rapping (and this time, it wasn't Nelly!).
The new video from Miranda Lambert is sure to challenge for the No. 1 spot in next week's Top 10 Video Countdown, but Chris Young's 'Who I Am With You' is the latest newcomer to the list. The clip in at No. 3 in its very first week in the poll!
The quality and depth of Hunter Hayes' songs prove that the young singer-songwriter is more than just a pretty face. His musical abilities -- both instrumentally and vocally -- and his impressive songwriting skills far surpass most musicians his age.
After coming in at No. 10 last week, Hunter Hayes is slowly creeping his way up the Taste of Country Top 10 Video Countdown. And knowing the 'Everybody's Got Somebody ...' singer's fans, Ronnie Dunn may want to set up guards over his reigning No. 1 slot.
Scotty McCreery and Hunter Hayes are two of the hottest newcomers in country music. Their careers are burning bright, but Taste of Country's March Man-Ness isn't about the music. Fans have the rest of the week to decide which of these two Young Bucks is cuter.
