Hunter Hayes has created a mini-movie set to roll out in three parts over the coming months as a way to share new music with fans. The series, titled “Pictures,” began with Part 1 yesterday (Monday, November 13th) and the release of “You Should Be Loved” ft. The Shadowboxers. Fans will have an opportunity to attend the movie’s premiere early next year at Regal Cinemas in Nashville featuring a panel with the actors, director and screenwriter and a live performance from Hunter himself.
Hunter told Forbes, “‘Pictures’ is a totally new experience for me. We’ve never done anything like this and I love how it takes you out of current reality and transports you to a different time and place entirely, where each song tells a piece of the story. With part one I’m only able to share the beginning, so I can’t wait for the fans to hear the new music and watch as the rest of the story is told along the way!”
Hunter also recently teamed up with Samsung Electronics America, Inc., gifting $100,000 to the CMA Foundation to help jumpstart a renovation project updating the music room at Nashville School of the Arts. He also collaborated with students on each stage, inviting the talented teens to show off their musical skills as part of his band during performances both on campus and at the Grand Ole Opry’s 92nd Birthday Bash.
