Hunter Hayes: Swift might write a song about me

Hunter Hayes

Hunter Hayes has joked that "maybe" the next Taylor Swift song will be about him.

Taylor is well-known for writing songs about the men in her life, famously featuring a track about ex John Mayer on her Speak Now album.

Hunter was the opening act for the 22-year-old's Speak Now tour and joked he can't be sure he's not featured on Taylor's latest album, Red.

"That's funny. No, probably not," Hunter told MTV News. "No, I didn't hear anything. I didn't hear any songs about opening acts, so I would say no. I would guess no. Maybe not, maybe the next one."

Hunter has had a successful year. He has won a wealth of awards ranging from a Teen Choice Awards surfboard to a CMA Award for New Artist of the Year. He's also winning music fans over with his self-titled debut album which was released last year. The Wanted singer explained how Taylor helped calm his nerves when he was a less experienced artist on their tour.

"She's cool; she's super cool," Hunter gushed. "I remember the first night I opened for her, it was my first time playing in an arena, like doing a show in an arena, and I was acoustic, so you can imagine how nerve racking it is to try and fill a room with 30,000 people or 20[,000] whatever with acoustic instruments on the stage by yourself, you know, but it was cool. We did the show, I was nervous as like butterflies and everything. I get off stage and I see this tall shadow and I'm like 'Is that her?' She was really complimentary and turns out she had sat there and watched the whole show from stage side and I just thought that was really cool. That meant a lot to me."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Responsibilities involving insurance, inheritances and taxes will command your attention. Don't put these matters off a moment longer. You may be busy with work and family, but these duties will never let up. If you continue to spend all of your energy on these things, you'll miss a golden opportunity. Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
