Hunter Hayes Discusses Taylor Swift In New Interview With US Magazine

In a new interview with US Magazine, Hunter Hayes discusses how he came to be the opening act for Taylor Swift on her Speak Now World Tour, as well as his upcoming album, how he became a musician, his inspiration, and more.  Read the full interview at USMagazine.com.  The following is an excerpt from the interview:

US: How did you react when you found out you would be opening for Taylor Swift?

HH: I was pleasantly shocked. We had picked the single but the record wasn’t complete. I was just sitting there hoping that we would get to play this album on the road and then we find out that we get to play on the Taylor tour and that is a heck of a way to start. It has been an absolute blast. It is way above my expectations and the tour is a dream come true.

US: How did you first get Taylor Swift’s attention?

HH: We put an iPod Nano together with a bunch of unfinished songs and filmed a little video saying, look I am a huge fan and I just wanted to see if there was any way I can get this music to you and introduce you to my stuff. I was hoping to do something with her in the distant future. Sure enough she listened to it and she was so complimentary. I was speechless.

US: What is Taylor Swift like?

HH: She is super nice. I have a lot of heroes in the music business and I have met most of them, including Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. They have all been supportive of my crazy dream and they share my love of music. She is one of those. She was so welcoming and was like, ‘so glad to have you.’ I was like, ‘are you kidding I am just glad to be here.’ I am still a little star struck when Taylor comes around.

US: Has Taylor Swift given you any advice?

HH: She has shared stories of her radio tour, which was cool to me and I was taking notes. I more or less am taking notes as far as listening to the stories and how she handled things.

US: Do you get to hang out after the shows?

HH: She has a pretty busy schedule and fortunately now I do too. We talk at least once a day and just chit-chat when she has two seconds. She is super cool.
