Exclusive Interview: Introducing Maggie Sajak

Rising country star Maggie Sajak recently took time out of her busy schedule to chat with us, and we’re thrilled to introduce you to her. We chatted about everything from her hot new single “Wild Boy” to her love of Carrie Underwood to her impressive school-music balance.

Maggie recently released a video for her new single, “Wild Boy,” which is a song that she loved immediately upon hearing. (Us too!) While most girls deal with a wild boy or two, the song has a unique twist on the typical tale. “I love the song because it’s powerful for a lot of people. A lot of girls end up having a boy like that in their life at some point, for better or worse. Sometimes they stick with us, sometimes they don’t,” Maggie says. “What’s cool to me is that the song doesn’t just focus on the guy, but it’s more about a girl making the decision about the guy and whether or not to put her heart on the line.”

On first listen to “Wild Boy,” Maggie immediately connected with the lyrics and knew it was a perfect fit. “When I received it, I definitely got the chills the first time I heard it and it really touched me, so I was thinking that it would touch a lot of other people. That’s the most important thing to me, always, the lyrics and the impact it has.”

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.”
