Artist News: Hayes’ “Turnaround,” Heidi’s “Playlist,” Faith’s “Runway”

Wade Hayes Offers “Place To Turn Around”
He’s been out of the spotlight for over a decade, but on April 21, former CMA  Top New Male Vocalist Wade Hayes will officially return with Place To Turn Around, a new 11-song collection featuring nine songs penned by Hayes himself. The singer/songwriter/guitar slinger first appeared in the early ‘90s with a string of hits of hits including “Old Enough To Know Better,” “I’m Still Dancing With You” and “What I Meant to Say,” and the new project features a similar mix of edgy uptempos and tender ballads.

Place To Turn Around also reflects the experience Hayes gained over the past several years on the road fronting his own band and, more recently, as guitarist for former Alabama lead singer Randy Owen.

“It’s really good to be back out playing on my own again,” Hayes says. “I am really excited about this project, and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for me.”

Place to Turn Around is now available via www.wadehayes.com as well as  iTunes and at Hayes’ live shows.

Faith Hill Graces Project Runway
Country superstar Faith Hill will join host supermodel Heidi Klum and judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia on the season finale of Lifetime Network’s Project Runway this Thursday, April 22nd at 9 PM CT.

“Faith Hill stepped into the toughest Project Runway guest judging seat of the season, the finale, which made her a deciding voice in naming the winner,” said ‘Runway’ Executive Producer Sara Rea. “She took on the task with flying colors. Faith was invested and took the job seriously. She gave constructive, relevant criticism and had a strong point of view. We really enjoyed having her.”

“What I saw was truly extraordinary and it made judging very difficult,” says Hill. “All of the designers were creative and imaginative. But there were some whose craftsmanship was impeccable. The passion that these individuals showed, and their eagerness to learn from feedback and criticism, should prove an inspiration for those that follow them.”
