Multiple GRAMMY nominated and platinum-selling country star Hunter Hayes sold out both of his Nashville, Tenn. dates at the historic Ryman Auditorium in under one hour. Fans quickly jumped at the chance to see Hunter in his first time ever headlining show at Ryman Auditorium. Fans will get to see Hunter perform his past hits as well as songs from his deluxe edition (Encore), due out June 18th on Atlantic Records, including his hit single, “I Want Crazy.” Special guest, critically-acclaimed Warner Bros. Records artist Ashley Monroe, will also perform. Additional tour dates go on sale Friday, June 21st at HunterHayes.com/Shows.
"ONE night at the Ryman is something I've dreamed about for a long time,” said Hunter. “It makes it even better that we get to do TWO, and the fact that they sold out that quick is just such a thrill. I’m so excited! This pretty much guarantees it’s going to be crazy!"
