I feel like we should have seen this coming. Hunter Hayes is probably the closest artist to a sure thing from the last several years in country music. He plays all the instruments on his records. He has a great voice. He does all the writing and co-writing. He seems like a good kid and he seems to be a really hard worker.
I just wasn’t sure if his kind of country would take off with fans and it turns out I was way off in my estimation. Depending on how this next single goes he could be on his way to superstardom. There is nobody like him out there right now.
I’m sure you’ve heard it already, but here is his latest single, I Want Crazy.
I Want Crazy – Hunter Hayes
This is a great love song. It’s about a guy that can’t be without the love of his life. He’s falling head over heels for this girl and doesn’t really care what anyone else says about the relationship. He knows things may not always be easy and that’s how he knows this is probably the real thing.
It’s always a question when a kid in their early 20s sings about love and relationships, but that’s where I think this song does well. It has that feeling that you’re just young and in love. You hear from all the adults in the world that there are rules for love. Well these kids are in love and they’re breaking all the rules. They’re going to make their own.
I can respect that sentiment and I can respect Hunter. He’s already proving that he’s a potential superstar in country music. I think he’s going to have a huge year.
