Hunter Hayes Set to Release ‘The 21 Project’ on November 6

Hunter hayes

Hunter Hayes has been exploring different ways to share new music with fans throughout the summer, and on Friday, Nov. 6 the Atlantic / Warner Music Nashville artist will offer up his latest creation with the release of The 21 Project. Featuring three discs – one acoustic, one studio and one live – the special collection will showcase the life of seven songs through each variation. Tracks will include Hayes’ current Top 25-and-climbing single, “21,” as well as a brand new song, “I Mean You.”

“This project has been a lot of fun for me, because it really brings the focus back to the music and shows how a song grows from its original form into something we play on stage,” said Hayes, who co-produced The 21 Project with Dann Huff. “We’re making our fall tour all about the music and connecting with fans in a closer setting, and just enjoying music together.”

The 21 Project is available for pre-order now at with a track listing as follows:

Hunter Hayes Surprises KY Fans with a “CMA Instant Jam”

Hunter Hayes

Students at The University of Kentucky are still buzzing about the surprise “Instant Jam” Hunter Hayes performed near their campus a couple of weeks ago, and now everyone can experience the fun-filled evening when “CMT Instant Jam: Hunter Hayes” premieres tomorrow Saturday, September 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Taped at the Lexington music club Cosmic Charlie’s on the same day Hayes celebrated his 24th birthday, the one-hour show gives a behind-the scenes look at all the moments leading up to the free pop-up concert and features rocking performances including Hayes’ chart-topping smashes “Wanted” and “I Want Crazy,” up-tempo hit “Tattoo” and current single, “21.” Hayes played the exclusive show to a packed-in crowd of some 300 fans who maintained their high energy throughout the entire evening, jumping up and down and singing along with him at every opportunity – even serenading him with a special round of “Happy Birthday.”

Hayes hinted to fans on Twitter days before the show that he had something special up his sleeve after tweeting that Darius Rucker’s “Instant Jam” installment was “brilliant” and “kinda had him thinking.” The next day he confirmed he would be doing a “CMT Instant Jam” of his own in Kentucky, followed by the news that it would take place in Lexington. Finally, on the morning of the show, he revealed where wristbands would be distributed and even enlisted the help of one lucky fan to help spread the word about the show.

Previous “CMT Instant Jams” include Kenny Chesney, Florida Georgia Line, Darius Rucker and Carrie Underwood.

Hunter Hayes Gives Fans Exclusive Content and Contests with a “Shazamable” T-shirt

Hunter Hayes

Hunter Hayes continues to push the technological envelope in a summer full of innovations, partnering with Shazam to create the first “Shazamable” T-shirt that will give fans access to exclusive content and a special contest during Hayes’s upcoming 21 Tour. The shirt employs Shazam’s new visual search technology, paired with an app that allows users to access a playlist of Hayes’s songs – including his current single “21” – and register to win a trip to see him out on the road this fall.

“Fans have Shazamed Hunter Hayes’ songs nearly 4 million times. Now that you can Shazam with your smartphone’s camera, we’re making it possible for Hunter to create an even deeper, more personal connection with his fans by Shazaming his shirt too. How crazy is that?” said Peter Szabo, SVP, Head of Music, at Shazam.

Jeremy Holley, SVP of Digital for Warner Music Nashville, added, “We’ve been testing Visual Shazam the past few months and realized we could create a new connection with the fans using this one-of-a-kind, immediate engagement.”

A notably tech-savvy artist, Hayes has experimented with several cutting-edge collaborations in the past year. On his 2014 Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, he incorporated an LED-lighting system with Glow Motion Technologies that allowed fans to participate directly in the lighting display of a live show. This summer, the Atlantic Records hit-maker has been rolling out new music such as “21” via streaming and digital-download services in what Billboard called “country’s biggest digital experiment to date.”

Hayes also collaborated with Spotify to route his 21 Tour this fall, targeting college markets with high densities of fans who stream his music. The 21 Tour will be a 21-city run of rare, intimate shows also featuring rising singer/songwriter Ryan Lafferty and chart-topping artist Kelsea Ballerini on select dates.
