Louisiana boy Hunter Hayes announced last week that he was going back on tour and also has a new album coming out too. Hunter Hayes will take the show on the road and will make a stop back in his native state of Louisiana.

Hunter Hayes who is now 31 years old was born and raised in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana which is located just outside of Lafayette, Louisiana. Breau Bridge is known as the crawfish capital of the world.

Hunter started his performing career at a really early age. We mean really early like when he was just two years old. By the time he was four years old, he had already performed on national television on shows like  Maury, Rosie O'Donnell Show, and the Nickelodeon game show Figure It Out.

He released an album called Through My Eyes in 2000 when he was only eight years old. The album featured Cajun music and even some country songs like the song Six Years Old which I still play today on the radio. Remember this song?

Just 11 years later, Hunter exploded onto the national country music scene with his first hit Storm Warning. His first number-one song was called Wanteed which hit the top spot in 2012.

He went on to have success with hits like Somebody's Heartbreak, I Want Crazy, Invisible, and 21 in 2015. It has been a few years since we heard from Hunter Hayes but now he's back with a new album and a new tour.
