His new album is snapping up nominations and Taylor Swift is one of his No 1 fans – say hello to country music’s hottest newcomer!

- He’s a collector. “I’m a big watch collector. I’ve got three Burberry watches because they make a lot of cool, weird bands.”

- He once signed a girl’s inhaler! “The girl came up to me at a meet and greet, and said, ‘Will you sign my inhaler? Because you take my breath away’.”

- Hunter was the opening act for Taylor Swift’s Speak Now tour and in September he was a surprise guest during the final stop of her Red Tour. After the show, Taylor tweeted: “Thank you to @HunterHayes for driving everyone CRAZY with I Want Crazy!! The crowd went INSANE for him and I loved every minute. #redtour”

- The young musician was a shy kid growing up and says he found his safe zone in music. “In writing music, I had my friend, the one thing that would never let me down.”
