Hunter Hayes will star in his own GAC-tv special “Introducing: Hunter Hayes” on November 1st at 10 pm EST. The show will highlight Hunter’s 17 year career, (he’s almost 20 years old!), never-before-seen pictures, family interviews, musical mentors and music executives.
“When I was young my parents noticed me taking a liking to music, “ Hunter said. “Music was my soccer game, it was just what I did. I think I started so young, I didn’t know what nervous was. As I started to grow up I started to take in a lot of different music, primarily Country,” Hunter added. “I was playing music long before I was writing it. I think I started writing it because I got tired of playing everybody else’s stuff and wanted to say my own thing.”
Hunter learned to play music before he could read. He joined a band as an accordion player when he was four years old, and the set list had to be drawn pictures instead of words since he couldn’t read.
