Hunter Hayes To Make Opry Debut

Multi-talented musician, writer, producer and performer Hunter Hayes makes his Grand Ole Opry debut on the historic stage this Friday, Aug 12.

Hunter, on tour with Taylor Swift on her Speak Now tour, will perform his debut single “Storm Warning” currently climbing the charts. Hunter joins Diamond Rio, Andy Griggs and Carter’s Chord in the line-up for Friday’s show.

“Being invited to play the Grand Ole Opry is like having the doors in country music open for you. Just the invitation to perform on the Opry feels like initiation into a family of artists I have looked up to and have studied my entire life,” says Hunter. “The cherry on top is that I get to play the same night as Diamond Rio!”

Hayes co-produced his Atlantic Records album with veteran producer Dann Huff, wrote or co-wrote every song, and played every instrument. The Louisiana raised multi-instrumentalist plays acoustic guitar, bass guitar, drums, electric guitar, banjo, mandolin, keys and more.
