Hunter Hayes is the only opening act for one of the hottest tours of 2013 – Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away Tour. After leaving the stage each night, Hunter keeps his own headlining tour in mind, and is using this opportunity to find ways to reinvent his set.
Hunter has been announced as a nominee for this year’s ACM New Male Artist category, along with Brantley Gilbert and Lee Brice. Fan votes will determine which artist goes on to compete for the New Artist of the Year title, against winners in the New Female Vocalist and New Vocal Duo or Group category. The ACM Awards will air live April 7th at 8PM Eastern on CBS.
