Hunter Hayes is about to join an exclusive club of country’s elite. He will be embarking on the 21-city CMT Tour this fall, a spot reserved for country’s fastest rising stars. Previous headliners have included the likes of Sugarland, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and more of the biggest names in country music.
CMT on Tour: Hunter Hayes Let’s Be Crazy Tour will kick off October 10 in Knoxville, TN. The tour will also feature rising solo artist and Pistol Annie, Ashley Monroe, as the supporting act.
“The fall is going to be a production, a show, an experience based on years of my dreaming about it,” Hayes tells USA Today. “It’s kind of like my first record — you have your entire life to make your first record, I’ve had my entire life to plan for this tour.
“This is my first chance to look at a stage and go, ‘What do I want to do?’ as opposed to ‘What can we do?’ I’ve got truck space, I’ve got a crew that can really put on a show, we’ve got a band that is more than capable.”
