CMA Award-winning artist and five-time GRAMMY nominee Hunter Hayes is bringing his hits and new music to the streets of downtown Nashville with his second annual free concert on Monday, Nov. 2, once again kicking off an event-packed CMA Awards week that will culminate with the release of his latest collection, The 21 Project, on Friday, Nov. 6. Featuring a performance by Hayes and special guests to be announced, portions of the show will be taped to air as part of a live broadcast during the CMA Awards red carpet coverage on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
Doors for the late night jam will open at 9:00 p.m. outside of Bridgestone Arena and the show is set to begin at 10:30 p.m.
Fans will get to hear new music from Hayes’ latest collection, The 21 Project, before it hits shelves on November 6. Featuring seven songs — including his current Top 25 single “21” — the limited edition, three-disc set explores the life of each track through their progression from acoustic, to studio, to live tour recordings. Hayes produced the project with longtime collaborator, Dann Huff. The 21 Project is available for pre-order now at http://smarturl.it/HH21ProjectPR.
Hayes will launch the first leg of his 21 Tour at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, N.C. this Thursday, Oct. 22. The tour, which the innovative entertainer routed with the help of Spotify to target college markets with high densities of fans who are streaming his music, will visit eight cities with more to be announced.
