HUNTER HAYES GIVES ALL FOR THE BASEBALL HALL

Former CMA New Artist of the Year Hunter Hayes will join an all-star lineup of performers to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

Scheduled for Aug. 2 at the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown, New ork, the concert will also feature Yolanda Adams, Juan Luis Guerra, Paul Simon, former New York Yankee turned jazz guitarist Bernie Williams and the Boston Pops Orchestra. Baseball Hall of Fame members Rod Carew, Rollie Fingers, Carlton Fisk, Juan Marichal, Phil Niekro, Ozzie Smith and Dave Winfield will also make appearances.

“We are thrilled that Hunter, an incredibly gifted American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, is joining the lineup to salute the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum during its Diamond Anniversary,” said Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson. “Baseball’s best are referred to as five-tool players, because they can run, throw, catch hit and hit for power. Hunter plays 30 instruments, writes, sings and is wildly popular. His music career is well on its way to the top.”
