Hunter Hayes to attempt record concert run for charity

Hunter Hayes to attempt record concert run for charity

Listen to Hunter Hayes on iHeartRadio

Hunter Hayes has a long day ahead of him.  The country star launched his "24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger" with an appearance on Friday's "Good Morning America."  His performance on the ABC morning show is the first of a planned run of ten concerts in ten cities over the next 24 hours.  Hunter admits it's going to be a challenge.  

But Hunter admits he doesn't really care if he has no voice by the end of the run, as long as everyone involved "has fun" and knows it's "going to be crazy."  He adds that there's a lot of energy and passion surrounding the event, because it "has a purpose." 

Hayes is using his "Road Race" to draw attention to the issue of child hunger.  And if he completes the run as scheduled the singer will also set a new Guinness World Record for the most concerts played in different cities in a 24-hour period. 

Fans will be able to monitor Hunter's progress over the course of his run.  He has a "Hunter Race Tracker" posted on his website, which will map out his route as he makes his way through the Northeastern U.S. carrying out his mission. 

The singer is also getting a little help from some other artists.  Dan + Shay, Charlie Worsham, and The Railers are among those who'll be performing with Hunter at select shows.
