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.

Tickets can be purchased at the Ramsey box office, or online at ramsey.wcu.edu. The concert is sponsored by the departments of Campus Activities and Residential Living.
