Hayes tattoos new tour

Friday, August 22, 2014 – Hunter Hayes officially announced his fall headlining tour, theTattoo (Your Name) Tour, set to kick off Thursday, Oct. 30 in University Park, Penn.

Warner Music Nashville label mates Dan + Shay and The Railers will join Hayes as supporting acts for the tour, which will be produced by AEG Live/The Messina Group.

During aTODAY Show performance this morning, Hayes played his single “Tattoo” as well as the number one hit "I Want Crazy" and "Invisible." The multi-talented singer-songwriter sported a fresh henna tattoo sleeve with emblems from each city on the Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, and three henna artists circulated the crowd inking fans with the tour logo. On television, viewers across the nation also got to see the first-ever localized commercial spots for a concert tour that are synced with the popular music identification service, Shazam.

"This tour is definitely going to be different than anything we’ve ever done before…and maybe anyone has ever done. It's a lot of firsts not only for us, but even for the fans who have seen our show before," said Hayes. "Every tour is all about the fans, but this one proves it. Not only are they going to be part of the show, they are the show. You'll see what I mean."

CD review - The 21 Project It's impossible to not be impressed with the variety Hunter Hayes has packed in his brief, seven-song "The 21 Project." The diminutive singer/songwriter proves himself to be the master of multiple song styles - even with such a short project. Each song is presented three times (studio, acoustic and live). Perhaps Hayes' greatest lyrical character trait is empathy, which he reveals again with "Where It All Begins," a track he both wrote and recorded with superstar ...
CD review - Storyline A few things changed since Hunter Hayes debuted in 2011, but the bottom line remains the same - Hayes has a syrupy smooth and sweet voice, but there's not a tremendous amount of depth there to his feel good material. Hayes struck it rich the first time out on his major label debut garnering 3 top 10 songs including "I Want Crazy." The Louisiana native also was a one-man band playing and singing all parts. That's not the case this time as he ceded CO-directorial control to Dann Huff. ...
CD review - Encore (deluxe) Hunter Hayes rereleased his debut self-titled album with a few additional tracks and three rerecorded ones.

People who have not warmed up to Hayes maple syrup smooth voice and decidedly pop version of country probably ...
