Hunter Hayes Hosting CMT Instant Jam in Kentucky

Network’s Latest Pop-Up Concert Premieres Sept. 26

Hunter Hayes’ fans in Lexington, Kentucky, are getting ready for his free pop-up concert to be taped Wednesday night (Sept. 9) as part of the CMT Instant Jam series.

Earlier this week, the Louisiana hinted that he’d been inspired after watching Darius Rucker’s recent Instant Jam show staged in Charleston, South Carolina.

Later revealing plans to stage his concert in Lexington, Hayes then headed to Twitter Wednesday to let fans know how to attend the free performance.

Lines began forming immediately on the University of Kentucky campus.
