Popular young country star Hunter Hayes will come back to State College to perform at the Bryce Jordan Center on Oct. 30, per the Jordan Center’s Twitter account. Hayes previously visited Penn State as an opener for Carrie Underwood’s appearance back in 2012, but is now worthy of top-billing.
Nominated for four Grammys and winning the Country Music Association Award for New Artist of the Year in 2012 before he even would have graduated college, Hayes is already a success story at just 22. He released his self-titled album last year that garnered hits like “I Want Crazy,” “Wanted,” and “Somebody’s Heartbreak.” After “Wanted” went No. 1 on the charts, Hayes became the youngest solo male act to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs.
The Jordan Center will release ticket information at a later date, so check back later for that update. Hayes is the latest in a long list of impressive acts that are coming to the BJC this fall, including Cher, The Beach Boys, and Foster The People. Check out some of Hayes’ hits below:
