Hayes, one of country music’s rising stars, will begin his “21 Tour” at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 22, at Ramsey Regional Activity Center. He will be joined by fellow country singer Ryan Lafferty. Tickets are $20 for students and $25 (plus facility fee and taxes) for the general public.
Hayes’ tour features 21 dates at 21 college campuses across the country. Earlier this year, the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist teamed with streaming music service Spotify to identify college markets with a high density of passionate Hunter Hayes fans. WCU was among that group.
Hayes, 23, is a four-time Grammy nominee and Country Music Association Award winner for New Artist of the Year in 2012.
