Hayes to headline a limited 21-city tour including shows on select college campuses across the U.S.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- (August 7, 2015) – Hunter Hayes is always innovating ways to connect more deeply with his fans, whether it’s sharing
“We’ve had such a great time touring this summer, and I can’t wait to get back out there this fall and see our fans in a close-up setting,” said Hayes. “We’re going to make it all about the music, with every night holding something unique only to that show.”
Hayes, who is nominated for Teen Choice 2015’s Choice Country Artist and Choice Country Song with his current single “21,” is also featured today on Spotify’s The Drop. The Spotify campaign contains six songs and videos, including two brand new releases, "Saint Or A Sinner" and "Trouble With Love." The anthemic “21” is already closing in on 21 million streams globally in less than nine weeks since its release and is the third most-played country track on Spotify.
Hayes has been racking up rave reviews while touring with Lady Antebellum on the Wheels Up Tour, with The Times Union recently calling him “phenomenally talented” and praising his “virtuosic guitar skills.” He will continue on the Wheels Up Tour through the end of the summer but is looking forward to scaling back from arenas and amphitheaters for the rare, limited 21-city tour.
"I've found myself in this really unique space while creating new music where there's something really exciting about stripping it all back down and looking these fans in the eyes while playing,” Hayes added. “Whether it's playing some of our hits differently or seeing where the new music takes us while on stage, I just really want to take some time to connect on that level before releasing a full album next year."
