“Wanted” Breaks Top 40 And Voted #1 Video on GAC

Little Jimmy Dickens Invites Him For An Encore At The Grand Ole Opry

NASHVILLE, TN – (April 15, 2012) – In less than two weeks since Hunter’s video for “Wanted” made it’s GAC debut, it has taken the #1 position on GAC’s Top 20 Countdown. This marks Hunter’s first #1 video on GAC. The same week, “Wanted,” which was released just weeks ago, broke Billboard’s Top 40 chart. Making this an even more magical week for Hunter, while at the Grand Ole Opry on Friday night, legendary Opry member, Little Jimmy Dickens, invited Hunter back onstage for an encore. As he took the world-famous stage, throngs of screaming fans came running down to the front of the stage to cheer and sing along to every word.

“I don’t know what else to say but THANK YOU, to my fans, for voting me into GAC’s Top 20 Countdown, and to be #1, I am so excited,” said Hunter. “To top off the night I got to see you all in person, screaming and singing along to every single word at the OPRY! You guys are absolutely the best!”

Hayes continues his “Most Wanted 2012” tour this week in the following cities:
4/19 The Brick Minneapolis, MN
4/20 The Rave Milwaukee, WI
4/21 Iowa State University Aimes, IA

Hunter Hayes, ACM New Artist of the Year nominee, is the only 2011 debut artist to play every instrument, write/co-write every song and co-produce his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. He is the only country artist in history to have accomplished such a feat. This multi-instrumentalist continues to garner praise from fans and critics alike as he made his world-premiere national television debut on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman and also performed with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and on Good Morning America. The Breaux Bridge, Louisiana native has shared the stage with Trace Adkins, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Hank Williams, Jr. to name a few.
