WHY: In honor of the service and sacrifice of our nation’s troops and military families, country music singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Hunter Hayes will perform his very first USO concert for troops and military families at Naval Station Norfolk on Thursday, Sept. 18. The concert is scheduled to take place at 7:30 p.m. on the Parade Grounds and will be open to all military ID card holders and their families.
Hayes joins fellow celebrities Kellie Pickler, Jason Derulo and Dennis Haysbert, in becoming the latest entertainer to come forward and partner with the USO’s “Every Moment Counts” campaign. Earlier this month, Hayes pledged his commitment to create special moments that matter for troops at each show during his upcoming Tattoo (Your Name) Tour. Following his moment-filled visit to Virginia, Hayes will perform another USO show at Royal Air Force Mildenhall in the U.K. on Oct. 11.
Four-time GRAMMY nominee Hunter Hayes is a Louisiana-born, Nashville-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who roared onto the music scene in 2011 with his platinum-selling, No. 1 self-titled debut album. With three No. 1 singles already under his belt (including the multi-platinum smash “Wanted,” “Somebody’s Heartbreak,” and “I Want Crazy”), Hayes delves into deeper material on his new album, Storyline. His current single, “Tattoo,” is already in the Top 30 and climbing at Country radio. Hayes continues to headline shows across the U.S. and Canada, and will launch his headlining Tattoo (Your Name) Tour on Oct. 30. For more information, visit http://www.HunterHayes.com.
QUOTES: Attributed to Hunter Hayes:
“The Tattoo (Your Name) Tour is definitely going to be different than anything we’ve done before, and we’re using technology that’s never been used on a tour before. Not only will fans be part of the show, but they will really BE the show, and I’m so honored to be able to share that experience with our servicemen and women as well.”
