Hunter Hayes made it two No. 1s in a row when his single "Somebody's Heartbreak" recently topped the charts, following his hit "Wanted." Hunter celebrated the success of "Somebody's Heartbreak" with co-writers Luke Laird and Andrew Dorff at an industry party at the BMI building in Nashville, Tuesday (June 25).

Before the well-attended party, Hunter told reporters that "Somebody's Heartbreak" was a favorite from the very beginning. "I remember that Luke actually did a demo, and I loved it so much, I said I had to go do my own [demo] now," Hunter recalled. "That's always been my way of showing my team that I'm really into a song. I've been excited about this song since day one," he added. "I felt good about it leaving the writing room that day. This is awesome."

The young, energetic star is equally pumped about his current single, "I Want Crazy," written with Troy Verges and Lori McKenna. "I wanted to say that love is what you want it to be when you've completely lost your mind, when you're doing things completely out of character," Hunter noted with a laugh. "That's what we wrote about and I'm really pleased how it came out."
