Hunter Hayes‘ fans got him a Favorite Male Country Artist nomination at Wednesday night’s People’s Choice Awards. He’s up against Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan and Tim McGraw in the category, and Hunter is especially grateful for the fan-voted nod.
He says, “Fan-voted things are special because, you know, they’re voting from the heart. They see the shows. They listen to the music, and they see a lot of great performances, and they hear a lot of great music.”
Hunter spends most of his life committed to making his albums and live shows the best they can be. Getting this confirmation that the fans like what he’s doing means a lot to him.
Hunter adds with a laugh, “That kind of thing just makes you feel a lot better about yourself and what you’re doing. It’s a big deal, man.”
Hunter will join fellow nominees The Band Perry and Lady Antebellum at the People’s Choice Awards. Lady A will also perform on the show, airing live Wednesday night at 9 ET on CBS.
