Hunter Hayes’ ACM Video Features Singer as James Bond
If Hunter Hayes were in a Bond movie, it would be entitled “One Vote Is Not Enough.” And to give fans a look at what kind of 007 he would be, the “Somebody’s Heartbreak” singer has suited up for a clip encouraging fans to vote for him in the ACM’s New Male Vocalist category. (Watch below.) Equipped with James Bond’s signature Aston Martin, the singer-songwriter asks you to choose him over Lee Brice and Brantley Gilbert for the coveted award.
The sauve singer may attribute his newfound swagger to the success of his first No. 1, “Wanted,” which just received a double platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America for sales exceeding two million units. “The song has given me a false sense of confidence,” Hunter tells The Boot with a laugh. “I’m such a geek. I’m so awkward and weird and shy and quiet. I don’t say these things in the song very well. That’s why I put them in a song.”
