Meeting Hunter Hayes!

Thursday, June 28, 2012
At the beginning of what was going to be the best day of our lives, we woke up at four in the morning hoping to have the opportunity to meet Hunter Hayes. After waiting for Hunter outside of his tour bus for about 30 minutes to try to get a picture with him, Betsy came up offering us front row passes to his concert. We thought having the opportunity to be within arms length from Hunter Hayes was going to be the greatest thing ever. But little did we know, we also got to go on the O Music Awards bus with him while he was being interviewed, getting the chance to interview him ourselves. It was like having our own private concert because he sang "Wanted" and "Somebody's Heartbreak." Not only did we get to meet Hunter, but getting to go on the bus with him gave us the opportunity to meet Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips and Chris Pontius from Jackass. We even got to have a conversation with Wayne while waiting for Hunter to arrive! Being the teenagers that we are, we didn't actually know who the Flaming Lips were, so when Wayne asked me why I was on the bus, I replied, "We're here to see Hunter Hayes!!" We didn't actually even know who Wayne Coyne was until we got home and realized what had happened. Anywho, when Hunter finally got on the bus and was starting to be interviewed, Wayne pulled us over to HUG HUNTER ON NATIONAL TV. Even after we thought this day couldn't get any better, we got to sit down on the same couch as Hunter and get to talk to him before he began to sing to us on live tv!! After getting to ride on the bus for about 20 minutes, we had to get off and say goodbye to Hunter and everyone on the OMA bus:(. While heading home, we began to realize that it was not even 10am. We had just had a days worth of events all within a few hours. Hunter was the nicest, funniest guy that we had ever had the chance to talk to. We love Hunter and hope to see him soon!! Again, thanks to Hunter, Betsy, and the rest of his crew for making all of this happen!
