Young country superstar Hunter Hayes is tired of children going hungry and he is doing something about it. It was just announced that he will be attempting to break the Guinness world record for playing the most shows in a 24 hour period. According to ABC News on March 12, the singer is calling this one day tour Hunter Hayes' 24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger. He will try performing 10 shows in 10 cities, beating the current record of eight held by The Flaming Lips.
The first stop on this hectic schedule of his will be performing live on “Good Morning America” at 8 a.m. in May. The total number of stops that he will go for will be 10 with the last stop in Philadelphia at 5 a.m. the following morning.
The 22-year-old country boy has been working with ConAgra on their Child Hunger Ends Here program since 2012 and this is his way of trying to raise awareness for this special cause. Hayes has talked about trying to get everyone to help and this is a great way of doing just that.
He has also just dropped the release date of his sophomore album called “Storyline.” It will be available on May 6, just three days before the attempt at the world record. This is also a great way to promote his new music by promoting the mini-marathon as well.
One of the new tunes that will be on this new album of his is the song that takes on the anti-bullying theme. “Invisible” was debuted at the 2014 Grammy’s and it is obvious that he is quite passionate about it. Check him out in the new music video for this touching song that was just released.
You can also catch him on stage on his "We're Not Invisible" tour which kicks off on March 20. He is one talented young man. After all, he does play 30 instruments.
Do you think Hunter Hayes will be able to break the world record for most shows played starting on May 9?
