NASHVILLE, TN – (October 22, 2013) – Multiple GRAMMY nominated and platinum-selling country star, Hunter Hayes, brought his high-energy show, selling out two days October 18th & 19th, to Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium this past weekend.

Performing for almost two hours, the show featured all the songs off his certified platinum debut album, Hunter Hayes (Encore), including his three consecutive No. 1 hit singles, “Somebody’s Heartbreak,” “Wanted” and “I Want Crazy,” and current hit single “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me.” The exclusive television premiere of “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me” will air Saturday, October 26th on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown. On opening night, Hunter brought out multiple GRAMMY Award-winning country music icon Ronnie Milsap (whose new album will be released January 28th) and accompanied Ronnie on his legendary smash hit, “Stranger In My House.” Saturday night, fans went crazy when surprise guests Charles Kelly and Dave Haywood from the GRAMMY Award-winning group Lady Antebellum joined him on stage to perform a song they co-wrote with Hunter, “Better Than This.” Opening for Hunter is special guest, critically-acclaimed Warner Bros.
