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.
