    Hunter Hayes Celebrates Extraordinary First-Week Streaming Numbers for New Song “Rescue”

    New Track Accumulates Over 1 Million Spotify Streams in a Week

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 10, 2017) – Five-time GRAMMY nominee and double platinum selling artist Hunter Hayes is continuing to make news with his new song “Rescue” currently boasting nearly 1.5 million streams since its release. Featured on Spotify “New Music Friday” playlists in 10 different countries, the song is also currently highlighted on their US Viral 50 playlist. Hayes recently shared an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the accompanying music video with Entertainment Tonight and also went into in-depth detail about the song’s inspiration with The Washington Post.

    The track, described as being “reminiscent of Heavier Things-era John Mayer” by Rolling Stone, is a soaring and electric guitar-driven dedication to those that help us make it through when all else seems lost. "For me, ‘Rescue’ is about people in my life who have shown up at a time I needed them the most but didn't know,” explains Hayes. “Times when I didn't have strength and a conversation with a friend gave me strength. Every time I sing it, it's a release and it's a relief. I want the fans to hear whatever it is that rescues them whether that be a person, a place or even an experience. We can have so many different kinds of conversations with a song like this and I hope that this starts the dialogue."

    Partnering with Zappos.com, Hayes is also using his first release of 2017 as a way to give back with “The Rescue Collection,” a limited shoe line that features artwork inspired by music video. All profits from “The Rescue Collection” will be donated to Zappos for Good, the charity team at Zappos.com. These limited edition shoes will be available starting December 2017 exclusively on Zappos.com and benefit a number of charitable initiatives including the CMA Foundation, the charitable giving arm of the Country Music Association that’s focused on improving and sustaining music education programs everywhere, and Zappos’ annual Pawlidayz pet adoption drive. All shoes will be accompanied by a digital download code for “Rescue” and a personalized lyric sheet from Hayes

    Until then, fans can see Hayes perform “Rescue” and other new music live on tour throughout the summer, with full dates and details below.
