Happy (Belated) 21st Birthday to Hunter Hayes! Hunter Hayes celebrated his 21st birthday on Sunday, September 9th, and he spent the day in one of the best ways possible! The young singer/musician headed back to his home state of Louisiana, and performed the National Anthem at the Superdome for the New Orleans Saints‘ game against the Washington Redskins! I can’t imagine how special and how much fun that must have been for the talented Hayes! Not surprisingly his Twitter was blowing with best wishes from his famous buds like @carrieunderwood and @JonDonRooney as well as from his adoring fans. You can check out some of the tweets and RTs below! You can find Hunter on the road with Carrie Underwood on her Blown Away Tour! Hunter Hayes Birthday Tweets

Hunter Hayes Is The New Brand Ambassador For Martin Guitars! Hunter Hayes is the new face of CF Martin & CO! The young country music artist is joining forces with the guitar craftsmen as their official brand ambassador! He will be taking his Martin 42-style instrument with him as he hits the road this fall on tour with Carrie Underwood on her 2012 Blown Away Tour! “It is an absolute honor to be named an official Martin Ambassador and to be recognized by the Martin family. To me, the Martin brand is a name I can trust. They make timeless guitars and prove themselves time and again with their elegant tone and sound. The craftsmanship that goes into every piece is one that has shaped some of my favorite music, and is certainly at the forefront of my own sound. I can’t wait to show off my new Parlor 42-style model on the road!” -Hunter Hayes Since Hunter plays just about every instrument under the sun, and he’s being playing those instruments since he was approximately four years old, I’m gonna go ahead and say that Martin Guitars has nabbed themselves one heck of a spokesperson!
Hunter Hayes’ New Video Is As Sweet As The Song.” Hunter Hayes‘ recent single “Wanted” from his 2011 self-titled album release is a very sweet and honest song, and now it has an equally lovely video to go along with it. I am pretty sure that country girls everywhere are swooning over this talented young singer, and after they see this video, they may need a friend to scape them off the floor after feinting from adorable-cute-boy-overload. Besides his swoon-worthiness, Hayes has a really authentic sound and a very accessible quality. In his music, it really seems like he is putting it all out there (risky for seasoned industry veterans and even more so for the newbies), and I think this vulnerability will help him get and keep a loyal fan base! Check out the video below and see what you think! Hunter Hayes, “Wanted” Get More: Wanted, Hunter Hayes, Hunter Hayes Videos

Hunter Hayes Video for Debut Single Storm Warning. Louisiana native Hunter Hayes may be new at releasing his own music, but at nineteen years old, he is hardly new to the music scene. He has been playing multiple instruments, including the bass guitar, drums, and keyboards since a young age, and has plenty of experiencing performing as well. Most notably he performed with Hank Williams Jr. at the ripe age of 4, in addition to other country icons like Johnny and June Cash and Charlie Daniels! More recently, Hunter flexed his song-writing skills co-writing music for Rascall Flatts and has shared the stage with LeAnn Rimes, Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins, and Lady Antebellum. He has now released what he refers to as his first real debut music. The single “Storm Watching” hit airwaves in April and is currently available on iTunes, and its a catchy, fun song! The video for the single came out just last week and it really shows off Hunter’s talent. We look forward to seeing what else Hunter comes up with! Check out “Storm Warning” here!
