Hunter Hayes hit the country music scene in a big way. Learn more about this singer in his Kidzworld bio.

Child Musician

Hunter Hayes was born September 9, 1991 in Louisiana. He fell in love with music at a young age, learning to play the toy accordion when he was only two years old. He had quite a crazy childhood. When he was four years old he made appearances on TV shows and when he was seven years old he performed at the White House.

Instant Star

In 2008, Hunter started to become more serious about his career. He moved to Nashville, the home of country music, and signed with Universal as a songwriter to help write music for other artists. In 2010 he was signed to Atlantic to create his own music.

Taylor Swift chose Hunter Hayes to open for her on the Speak Now tour. This exposure catapulted Hunter to fame, and he was an instant hit on country radio. In October 2011, Hunter released his first self-titled album. Hit songs from the album include “Wanted”, “Storm Warning” and “Somebody’s Heartbreak”. In 2012, Hunter accompanied Carrie Underwood on her Blown Away tour. He was nominated for three awards at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
