Hunter Hayes is only 22 and he’s already been nominated for three Grammys. Taylor Swift is a fan – Hayes opened for her on her Speak Now tour and she recently brought him onstage to close out her RED tour. He strikes me as kind of a younger Deacon (hopefully without the sad parts!). But if that makes T. Swift Rayna then I don’t like this comparison anymore. Fun fact: Hunter has Cajun ancestry and grew up singing in English and French.
