Multiple GRAMMY-nominated artist Hunter Hayes’ highly-anticipated new album, Storyline, was released today on Atlantic Records to much critical acclaim, debuting No. 1 on iTunes country and overall charts in both the US and Canada. Recently dubbed “The Crown Prince of Nashville” by Billboard Magazine, the feature article goes on to say that Hunter “is leading country’s youth revolution” and “could be poised to one day ascend to country music’s throne – and beyond.” The album, praised by Rolling Stone, People Magazine and The Los Angeles Times who all awarded 3 star reviews, features 14 new tracks including his powerful Top 20 hit single “Invisible.” Hunter is also teaming up with ConAgra Foods to end child hunger while attempting to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® world record for Most Concerts Played in multiple cities in 24 hours (cities, times and venues below). The “24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger,” brought to you in part by ConAgra Foods’ Child Hunger Ends Here program, will kick off this Friday, May 9 on Good Morning America (GMA) on ABC in Times Square. He is attempting to break the record by playing 10 shows in 10 cities in 24 hours (current record held by the Flaming Lips with eight shows in 24 hours who broke the previous record made by Jay-Z).
