If you somehow don’t know who Hunter Hayes is, I’m here to show you the light. He’s the country music version of the perfect boyfriend, and he turns 22 today! His first single debuted all the way back in May 2011, but he’s finally starting to get some mainstream recognition in the music world. On one hand, I’m super excited for him to become a household name. On the other hand, I don’t know if I’m ready for everyone to be all over him. On the third hand, he’s already bigger than I’m making him out to be. Despite being just 22, he’s already opened for big country stars like Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts. And he has quite a few fans already, over 785,000 on Twitter if we want to start doing math.
Now that he’s all grown up, he’s headlining his very own tour this fall. Can we hear some awws for him being all grown up?! Country can try to hide this cutie all they want, but he’s about to become everyone’s boyfriend material and I think I feel ready to introduce everyone to him. As long as they remember that I’m the one who discovered him and I therefore have first dibs.
So with no further ado, here are the only 9 gifs you need to see to want to start dating him.
He’ll fix your car for you. Bonus: He’ll look great doing it.
He will take selfies with you. And bonus, he’ll let you pick the Instagram filter.
He cleans up really well for award shows. Which is something that you need to really consider when you start dating celebrities.
He can pull of a bow tie. So if the music thing somehow doesn’t work out, he’ll look great when he’s catering events.
He can fit as your carry-on when you travel. Now you don’t have to buy two tickets. Not that he would ever let you pay for the tickets anyways.
He’ll make fun of himself just to make you laugh. Because, naturally, he loves the sound of your laughter.
But he’ll also be there to laugh at your jokes. Even when they’re from a story that you’ve already told a billion times.
He can play the guitar, the piano and whatever this instrument might be. So impromptu serenades will be the new norm for you.
He’ll save you money on a wedding DJ. Because all you’ll need is a playlist of his best hits to set the romantic mood.
