Hunter Hayes Gearing Up for Lady Antebellum Tour
Lady Antebellum's 2015 Wheels Up tour kicks off on May 1, and Hunter Hayes is ready! The "Tattoo" singer explains, "It's time for a new kind of show for us. I'm rethinking and restructuring the entire show."
Like ... incorporating dance moves? Charles Kelley has been known to bust out a few onstage. Can fans expect Hayes to break it down for the crowd?
"I'm not really a dancer," the young star explains, "Although lately when I've been wearing boots, I'm slipping and sliding on stage. It's kind of fun. I like it."
Admits Hayes, "Charles is just tall, so anything he does, he looks cool. He's just tall, you know what I mean? He's like 'Yeah.' But I'm short. So anything I do it's like 'Hi. I'm short and I'm awkward.'"
He may not be much of a dancer, but if 'awkward' means 'really cool geek,' Hunter Hayes is indeed that. On various episodes of his web series #FortheLoveofMusic, he channels his inner Star Wars nerd by pulling out a fake light saber on several occasions. Taste of Country's Nicki D. is also as nerdy as they come, so, what better way to end an interview than with a light saber battle?
You'll have to watch to find out who wins this one. Find Hayes out on the road with Lady A and newcomer Sam Hunt through July. The trio is as excited, as well, as Kelley says in a release: “Being able to play off each other on that stage is honestly where we have the most fun, and I have a feeling the crowd will already be on their feet when we get out there after starting the night with Hunter and Sam!"
