Hayes is "All For You"

Wednesday, January 4, 2017 – Hunter Hayes will debut "All For You," an original song featured in Paramount Pictures' forthcoming feature film "Monster Trucks," on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Thursday.

Hayes penned the upbeat tune with fellow Nashville writers Jon Nite and Emily Weisband and will perform the song live for the first time in support of the family-friendly film, which hits theaters nationwide on Jan. 13.

While in New York, Hayes will also perform new music from his third studio album - including his current single, "Yesterday's Song" - via Billboard's live stream tomorrow at 4:30 p.m.eastern.

"This past year has been such an incredible journey for me, both personally and creatively, and I can't wait to share new music with everybody," said Hayes. "You never know where a song will take you or how it might affect somebody, and while we work on finishing the new album and putting out more songs, it's really cool to have this one I wrote a while back come to life with a film and be able to share it in its own unique way."

CD reviews for Hunter Hayes

The 21 Project 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 »»»
Storyline 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. »»»
Encore (deluxe) CD review - Encore (deluxe)
Hunter Hayes rereleased his debut self-titled album with a few additional tracks and three rerecorded ones. In any other genre of music, the new songs would have simply been released as an EP, but for some inexplicable reason, country music seems to be reluctant to embrace that form. The 800,000 fans who already own the original may find it irritating to pay full price for 5 new songs. People who have not warmed up to Hayes maple syrup smooth voice and decidedly pop version of country probably »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety.

But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
