Hunter Hayes to Perform FREE Nashville Concert Prior to CMA Awards

hunter hayes

Hunter Hayes is kicking off the week leading up to “The 48th Annual CMA Awards” with a free nighttime concert in downtown Nashville on Monday, Nov. 3rd as part of Hayes’ involvement with the USO’s “Every Moment Counts” campaign. A rare hometown performance for Hayes, the street party presented by exclusive radio partner WSIX commemorates one of many “moments” in honor of Sergeant First Class Tyler Arnold and his family, who will be in attendance at the show along with servicemen and women currently stationed at nearby Fort Campbell. SFC Arnold has been deployed six times, including multiple trips to Iraq and Afghanistan, and is being recognized by the USO for his service, sacrifice and strength during the “moments” Arnold missed with his wife and two young daughters during his deployments.

As “Every Moment Counts” approaches its one year anniversary, Hayes has partnered with the USO to create special #USOmoments for troops and their families at each of 17 stops on his Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, which commences Tuesday, Oct. 28th at Best Buy Theater in New York City. At each show, Hayes has created a unique moment recognizing all service members and their families while integrating concert-goers, including invited troops and their families, in an unprecedented way utilizing customized Glow Motion Technologies wristbands as part of the USO “Every Moment Counts” campaign. All fans in attendance at the shows can download the official Hunter Hayes Tour App (available for Apple and Android phones) to physically integrate into the tour’s lighting design and participate in the entire show using #YouAreTheShow.
The app is available now at http://smarturl.it/HHMobileApp.

To date, Hayes has performed at two USO concerts–one at Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia and one at Royal Air Force Mildenhall in the U.K.–in support of the “Every Moment Counts” campaign.

Tour mates Dan + Shay and The Railers will also join Hayes for the Nov. 3rd show in Nashville, which is set to begin outside Bridgestone Arena at 10:30 p.m. with additional special guests to be announced.

hunter hayes

CMT’s hit biography series INSIDE FAME returns with an exclusive profile of four-time Grammy-nominated artist and global phenomenon Hunter Hayes premiering Saturday, November 1 at 8 p.m., ET/PT. At age 23, Hayes has amassed sales of more than 9 million digital tracks worldwide, and earlier this year was named one of Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30.” A multi-talented performer, musician, producer and writer, his career first made the national spotlight after he performed onstage with Hank Williams Jr. at the age of five. CMT chronicles the life of the musical prodigy turned country superstar in the one-hour special episode INSIDE FAME: HUNTER HAYES, featuring new interviews with Hayes about his sophomore album, Storyline, and never-before-seen performance clips.

In the new installment of INSIDE FAME, Hayes speaks candidly about growing up in Breaux Bridge, La., and the passions that eventually brought him to Nashville, including his earliest performances and his first guitar – a gift from Hollywood legend Robert Duvall. The superstar has accomplished much at an early age, including the Guinness World Record for the most live concerts performed in 24 hours in different cities. The special features new interviews with those closest to Hayes including his family, label representatives, music critics and fellow superstars Carrie Underwood, Jason Mraz, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts; who share what it’s like to collaborate with the young artist and just what makes Hayes so special.

Some of the most powerful and emotionally moving voices in music come together to celebrate the holidays on “CMA Country Christmas,” which tapes in front of a live audience Friday, Nov. 7 (7:30 PM/CT), at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The special, which features Jennifer Nettles hosting for the fifth year, airs this holiday season on ABC.

“After being the host of ‘CMA Country Christmas,’ for five years now, it is hard to pick one thing I love about it. There are so many fun moments,” Nettles said. “Whether it is the performances or duets, getting to perform Christmas songs with great artists is really fun for me. It’s really a fun show all around.”

Artists scheduled to perform and celebrate the season include Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Sara Evans, Lucy Hale, Hunter Hayes, Little Big Town, Idina Menzel, Nettles, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith, and Carrie Underwood.

“The taping for ‘CMA Country Christmas’ is a jump-start for the holiday season and has become a family tradition for many Nashville residents,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “Adding to the celebration is our annual toy drive, which provides new toys for children in need, shining a spotlight on a worthy endeavor in a way that reflects the values and giving nature of our artists, the industry, and this city.”

For the third year, audience members are being encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the taping to help make the holidays brighter for Nashville area children. The Nashville-based non-profit group Generosity will have volunteers on site with specially marked bins to collect toys beginning at 5:00 PM/CT on Nov. 7. In 2013, the group collected more than 5,000 toys.

“Our artist community is extremely generous and so are our fans,” Trahern said. “It is our goal to make sure no child goes without a present this Christmas and we are grateful to our partners at Generosity for helping to make this a dream come true for children in Nashville.”

Tickets for “CMA Country Christmas” are on sale now and can be purchased at CMAChristmas.com; by calling (800) 745-3000; or in person at the Bridgestone Arena Box Office, located at 501 Broadway (corner of Fifth Avenue and Broadway, Nashville). Tickets for “CMA Country Christmas” are $25 for Upper-Level seating and $50 for Lower- and Club-Level seating. Ticket prices include tax, but exclude applicable service fees.
