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.

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.
