Hunter Hayes Races the Clock for Guinness World Record
Attempting 10 shows in 10 cities in 24 hours
Hunter Hayes loves fast cars. And Hunter Hayes loves nice watches. And Hunter Hayes loves playing music for his fans. So why wouldn’t he combine all of his favorite things into a record-breaking attempt to perform as many live shows as he can in 24 hours? And why wouldn’t he do it the week his newest album, Storyline, hits store shelves?
This morning (May 9), Hunter, his band and a team of his record label reps hit the road for the Hunter Hayes Road Race to End Child Hunger, attempting to play 10 shows in 10 cities in 24 hours. And if he makes it, that will land him a Guinness World Record. The race kicked off today on Good Morning America.
And while he may not be making the run in a fast car—he’s actually on a tour bus—he did get the beautiful watch part right. Tudor Watch U.S.A. signed on as the official timekeeper for the race and Hunter is staying on schedule with a Tudor Heritage Chrono watch that, as much as he’d like to keep it, will be auctioned off after the race to raise money for Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.
As of 3:30 this afternoon, Hunter was at his fifth show just eight hours in. You can follow along with the adventure on Twitter: @HunterHayes. You can also pick up his new album, Storyline, featuring the hit single "Invisible," today.
