New Music Monday: Hunter Hayes’ Live EP

I’ve been a huge fan of Hunter Hayes for almost two years now, and last November I jumped at the chance to see him live in Atlanta. By the time the show rolled around, I had every word of his album memorized, and I’m so glad he decided to preserve one of his live shows in the form of this new EP. He’s definitely talented as a young songwriter, and his abilities as a live performer certainly measure up to his songwriting talent.

The show I went to was in a relatively small venue with a small but lively crowd, so it was an incredibly up close, laid back, personal performance. I’m not sure where this live EP was recorded, but it sounds like a larger show than the Atlanta one I attended. He put on a fantastic live show for being a new artist, and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to see him live before he set out on Carrie Underwood’s arena tour. This EP is a true representation of his talent… I would even go so far as to say he sounds better live than he does on his first album!

Here’s a video of Hunter performing one of the most romantic songs that could possibly come out of a twenty-one-year-old male at the Opry. If you enjoy this video, check out the live EP here!

Keep talkin’ twangy!

Congratulations to Hunter Hayes!

According to several sources that I’ve seen on Twitter this morning, Hunter Hayes‘ “Wanted” has been certified gold today! I saw Hunter perform on the CMT Music Awards about year ago, and I’ve been a huge fan ever since. I had the privilege of seeing him perform live and meeting him in Atlanta in November, and I could tell he carried an attitude of humility despite the loads of talent he demonstrates daily. I’ll also be seeing him on Carrie Underwood‘s Blown Away Tour in Atlanta in December, and I know the entire audience will love the unforgettable treat of his performance. I love that he sings AND plays all the instruments on his album, and his writing skills are also showcased on it. He’s a package deal of talent, and I know he’ll continue to accomplish incredible things! To celebrate his accomplishment, find out for yourself why the song deserves this honor and watch the music video!

Congratulations again, Hunter!

Keep talkin’ twangy!
