Hunter Hayes Background
Raised in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana,
Hunter Hayes started crafting music at a very young age. "By the time I was almost two, I was picking up everything and making
an instrument out of it. My grandmother gave me a toy accordion for my second birthday and I immediately began picking up
Cajun songs by ear from the radio." Hayes said that both of his parents have a passion for music but neither of them play
instruments or sing. "The way I picked up music was out of left field, but, I suppose, a pleasant surprise for them," Hayes
The Hayes brood could be found at a Cajun restaurant most Friday nights during his childhood. The restaurant
was just a stone's throw away from their home and hosted live music. At the tender age of four, Hayes stepped into the spotlight
for the first time as an accordionist for his first band. A year later, he became the band's frontman. By the age of six,
he picked up the guitar. It also became evident that he was able to take on a number of different instruments, including the
drums, keyboards, bass guitar and more, with great ease. He said, "I've never had the patience to sit down and learn from
anyone. So with the guitar, and with every subsequent instrument and piece of studio equipment, it's been a process of experimentation
- pressing every button I can." Along with his abilities as an instrumentalist, Hayes is an avid songwriter as well. "I wrote
my first song at 6," Hayes explained. "I spent every day with the guitar and I just made up songs." Hayes credits a variety
of inspirations for his music: "When I was really young, Garth Brooks was enormous, and I was a huge fan. I always loved LeAnn
Rimes and especially Clint Black for his soulfulness. As I've gotten older, my influences have broadened - John Mayer, Michael
Buble, Stevie Wonder, Keith Urban, Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Beatles - all of these artists have somehow been a part of my development
as a songwriter."
Not only does Hayes make songwriting and playing instruments look easy, but he makes his stage performances
look easy as well. The up-and-coming talent has performed alongside country superstars like Lady Antebellum, Trace Adkins,
Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Hank Williams, Jr. and Keith Urban.
Eventually, Hayes took his career a step even further.
Sitting in the producer chair, Hayes issued his eponymous premiere album with Dann Huff. He said, "I've released independent
records before, but this feels like the first real record - with the high stakes."
For such a young musician, Hayes
has set the bar high for himself. He said he hopes that everyone will embrace his music for years to come. And, the way he
is headed, that is certainly a possibility.
"I don't know if I'm worthy of being considered of 'carrying the torch,'
but I would love to be told that by somebody someday. A lot of the decisions I make are from answering the question 'are we
dong it for the right reasons?' I want people to say about me, 'I know he's making music because he loves it,'" Hayes said.
