– Hunter Hayes released a new song, "You Should Be Loved."
Co-written by Hayes, Sam Ellis and Blair Daly, Hayes is backed by pop group The Shadowboxers.
"I am so thrilled for 'You Should Be Loved' to be the next song out," said Hayes. "From the writing to the studio time to having The Shadowboxers on this song, it's been such a pure process and labor of love for the lyric and musical side. I'm excited to have a little bit of the music I grew up around in Louisiana represented on this track and I'm so excited about having worked with my good buddy Sam Ellis on this. I hope you guys dig it."
It was unclear if the song would be on a fourth album. There is no date for an album release.
Hayes just kicked off a month-long renovation project to update the music room at the Nashville School of the Arts with performances both on campus and at the Grand Ole Opry's 92nd birthday bash. Hayes worked with students on each stage, inviting the talented teens to show off their musical skills as part of his band.
