For Hunter Hayes, complacency is the enemy. After being nominated for a handful of GRAMMY Awards, snagging a collection of CMA’s and touring the world behind a pair of critically-acclaimed albums, it would be far too easy for the revered singer-songwriter and top-notch musician to rest on his laurels. But Hayes wants more. “I had to get in the mindset of ‘I’m starting over,’” the 25-year-old says boldly of a rigorous two-year process during which he wrote more than 100 songs; made a Nashville studio his personal playground and, most important for his development as a category-defying artist and musical innovator, flipped convention on its head.
“I’m starting from scratch,” Hayes declares with equal parts excitement and nervous anticipation of the mindset behind cooking up some of the boldest, hook-heavy material of his career with a heavier emphasis on band-based arrangements and live drums. “It’s about who I am and where I’m going.”
Doors open at 6 p.m. on Sept. 15 and the show will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $29.99, plus applicable L.E.T. and facilities fees, and will go on sale Friday, June 29.
