We first heard about Best New Artist nominee Hunter Hayes when he released his hit song "Wanted", and the 21-year-old country music singer hasn't left our radar ever since. The humble performer discusses his total shock to be nominated at the 55th GRAMMY awards in the VEVO video above, expressing his true gratitude to be apart of one of the biggest nights in music. Hunter explains that every year, it's a tradition for him & his family to sit around together and watch The GRAMMYs, so we can only imagine how excited his loved ones are for him this year! Good luck, Hunter!
