Hunter Hayes, a mainstay of country music since his 2012 single “Wanted” hit number one, will perform at 8 p.m. Sunday, August 26 on the Chevy Court stage at the 2018 Great New York State Fair. It will be the first performance at the Fair for the singer from Louisiana, who has been nominated for five Grammy awards and was named Favorite Male Country Artist in the 2015 People’s Choice Awards.
Hailed as a "force to be reckoned with" by the Huffington Post, multiple-award-winner Hunter Hayes is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who roared onto the music scene with his 2x multi-Platinum, No. 1 self-titled debut album and chart-topping sophomore album, Storyline, on Atlantic Records / Warner Music Nashville. With three No. 1 singles under his belt (the multi-Platinum smash “Wanted,” double-Platinum “I Want Crazy” and Platinum-selling “Somebody’s Heartbreak”), Hayes continues to surprise fans with new releases such as “Yesterday’s Song” and his latest, “Rescue,” which inspired his recent $100,000 donation to renovate the music room at the Nashville School of the Arts. In addition to his Grammy nominations, the multi-instrumentalist has tallied over 40 award nominations and wins including the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Male Country Artist in 2015 and the CMA Awards’ coveted New Artist of The Year trophy in 2012.
Concerts at Chevy Court are sponsored by Chevrolet and are free with Fair admission, one of more than two dozen free shows by national touring acts to be presented this year.
