Tonight, Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012 GNA welcomes Carrie Underwood and Hunter Hayes to the Times Union Center. In 2011, we had the chance to meet Hunter Hayes at the CMA awards.

The young singer really impressed me, as he talked about learning to play several instruments and studying the music business, inspired by a Rascal Flatts album.  Now in 2012, he is the CMA's Best New Artist of the year with a No. 1, 'Wanted.'
