iTunes released an exclusive live album for 2012 CMA New Artist of the Year nominee Hunter Hayes on October 16 featuring live performances of several tracks from his self-titled debut album. The EP, Hunter Hayes: Live, can be purchased through iTunes for $3.99. His album, Hunter Hayes, is on sale at $7.99 starting October 16 for two weeks. Hunter’s latest single “Wanted” is in the process of nearing Double Platinum status and with this, Hunter is also going to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show October 22 so be sure to tune in or set your DVR for this dynamic new artist who is well on his way to making serious tracks in the world of country music.
The Live Track EP has 5 songs the first of which is “Storm Warning”, a rocking upbeat song about a lady (yeah, who’d not think that after all?) where he is thinking he needs a storm warning for because she’s like a hurricane and did you ever notice “every hurricane gets their name from a girl like this?” “She rolled in from the West……hotter than the heat in July” and “She’s a beautiful mess the kind you love to love”…..and he’s going to wish he had a “Storm Warning”. (I think all of us ladies should come with a storm warning, don’t you? Makes us interesting!)
“Wanted” is the single making all the wonderful fuss for Hunter right how – it’s a love ballad about making a girl feel wanted and he has a special way of singing this song that makes its popularity right now inevitable. “I wanna make you feel wanted, I wanna call you mine”…there’s no doubt every female who adores Hunter wants him to sing this song directly to them. The response from the audience on this cut is living proof.
“Somebody’s Heartbreak” is a great song about being somebody’s first or last heartbreak. “If you're gonna be somebody's heartbreak, or somebody's mistake--Somebody's first time, or their last time, baby be mine.” The words to this song and the accompanying music make it a lightly soulful song about trying out new love and breaking the rules along the way.
“More than I Should” and “Love Makes Me” round out this incredible live EP for Hunter and you’ll notice a huge audience response in all songs that generate more life to this EP than a studio-cut. It’s a great EP for the price and all Hunter’s fans are going to want it ASAP.
You can also find Hunter on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and there are many YouTube videos available as well. You do not have to hunt far for Hunter Hayes – he’s shaking up the industry with new tunes, TV shows and a tour with Carrie Underwood on her “Blown Away” tour! Enjoy!
