2012 CMA Awards New Artist of the Year Is Hunter Hayes
Someone definitely feels “Wanted” tonight. Hunter Hayes was named the New Artist of the Year at the 46th annual CMA Awards. The 21-year-old was giddy as he heard his name called and made his way to the stage.
“I don’t even know what to do right now,” said the singer as he caught his breath to accept the award. “Thank you, Lord, for letting me do what I do, and what I do every day. Thank you to the amazing fans. Thank you to my family … My mom and dad have done so much to get me right here. Thank you guys.”
