There’s no denying that 2013 was the Year of Hunter Hayes. The 22-year-old country music artist racked up three Grammy nominations (and another in 2014 for “Let’s Be Crazy”), headlined a major CMT tour, collaborated with several of his idols like Stevie Wonder, and was named a CMT Artist of the Year. He also re-released his self-titled debut record, Hunter Hayes (Encore), in June with new tracks, and the result was a platinum-selling album and his third No. 1 single.
