Immediately following ABC’s telecast of the 50th Annual CMA Awards on Wednesday, Nov. 2, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Hunter Hayes will debut his new single, “Yesterday’s Song,” on national television via a special performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Appearing via hologram live from the CMA Theater in Nashville, Tenn., Hayes will put his musicianship on full display with a unique rendition of the song, which he wrote with Barry Dean and Martin Johnson and produced with longtime co-creator, Dann Huff.
In early reviews, Rolling Stone Country calls “Yesterday’s Song” a “hard-driving, Keith Urban-like rocker, with some Lenny Kravitz-inspired guitar” and Taste of Country notes the boisterous single is “addictive” with “razor-sharp guitar work and a hook that would be illegal if it were a narcotic.” “Yesterday’s Song” is also making an impact at Country radio, landing in the top three most-added singles this week.
Viewers can tune in to ABC next Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 11:35 / 10:35 p.m. CT to see Hayes perform “Yesterday’s Song” for the first time on national television.
Hayes is currently working on his third studio album for Atlantic / Warner Music Nashville and continues to perform select headlining dates across the country.
