Hunter Hayes is having a pretty decent year, wouldn’t you say? Not only did the up-and-coming country singer DOMINATE his performance at the 2013 CMT Music Awards, but he’s also prepping (Encore), the deluxe follow-up to his 2011 self-titled debut (check out behind-the-scenes photos of his recording sessions at Darkhorse Studios in Nashville!). Hmmm, what else? Oh, yeah! Hunter’s Artist To Watch status has earned him a show at NYC’s Webster Hall on June 18, which you’ll be able to livestream right here. And now, to top everything off, you can download a brand-new (Encore) track, “Light Me Up,” at HunterHayes.CMT.com.

Set to a triumphant, highly orchestrated track, “Light Me Up” has Hunter singing about a special lady who brings him back to life after a heartbreak: “You light me up/ Like the fireworks flying on the Fourth of July/ You light me up/ Like the sunshine blazing in the summertime/ Every time you light me up.” OK, we thought we knew what love was after hearing heartfelt/crazy-in-love songs like “Wanted” and “I Want Crazy,” but HUNTER! Way to knock this one out of the park! Can anyone say “Song Of Summer 2013″?

Grab Hunter Hayes’ (Encore) when it streets June 18, and remember to livestream Hunter’s MTV Artist To Watch¬† performance from NYC’s Webster Hall, also on June 18!
