Hunter Hayes was only 4 years old when he stepped foot into a recording studio for the first time, but it left a lasting impression.
I remember the room, I can paint it for you. I was just excited to be a part of something that I felt like everybody did. That’s what musicians do, they get in a studio. I fell in love with the process.
It’s such a safe place to create. There are no wrong answers. Fail until you get it right. Splatter paint is what I call my process.
Awesome environments like this lift you up, inspire, allow you to express yourself, be who are you, and learn about yourself.
Now, he’s helping to share that experience with members of the Preston Taylor Boys & Girls Club in Nashville. Through the help of Lowe’s Renovation Across the Nation program, the studio was revamped and includes a stage, recording booths, a DJ platform and premium equipment.
At the surprise reveal of the studio, Club members and Lowe’s volunteers were treated to a performance from Club member Taylor Gayle, who performed a bluesy rendition of Hunter’s “Wanted.” Then, Hunter took the stage to share his excitement about the studio and perform 3 songs: his latest single “Rescue,” “Yesterday’s Song,” and “I Want Crazy.”
Fans can expect to hear new music from Hunter on a more frequent basis moving forward.
The way we’re releasing stuff now is a little different. …It’s more real, how it happens. This is how I listen as a fan. More music, more often.
Lowe’s has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America through a $2.5 million initiative to revitalize one club in all 50 states. And, Lowe’s has kicked off a nationwide in-store donation program where shoppers can directly contribute to Boys & Girls Clubs.
I love that Lowe’s has paid so much attention to something like this and has brought so much to the table to help and empower.
