At just 21 years old, Hunter Hayes was named New Artist of the Year at the CMA Awards last week.  He has is an American country music singer, songwriter, and mulch-instrumentalist.  Hunter says he can actually play 30 different instruments.  On his latest album some instruments that he includes are; guitar, mandolin, bass, piano, and drums.  And that's just naming a few.  Hunter's career first started when he signed to Atlantic Records in Nashville and released his self-titled debut album in October 2011.  That album included the top 20 hit single, Storm Warning.  The album also includes his first No. 1 hit, Wanted.  Wanted actually hit the No. 1 spot on Billboard Country Charts.  By doing this Hunter actually broke a record and became the youngest solo male artist to top the Hot Country Songs charts which was originally set in 1973. He beat the record by a whole month 3 months.  

When Wanted was first released, I actually bought the song right away on iTunes, and it was actually on repeat at times on my iPod because it is such a good song. Hunter is truly an awesome artist, and you should check out his latest album.
