Hunter Hayes celebrated his birthday Wednesday (Sept. 9), with a few hundred lucky fans at the University of Kentucky. Hayes had been hinting around at a surprise performance earlier in the week, then Wednesday revealed how to score wristbands for the free, pop-up concert. As expected, lines started forming immediately for the one-night-only performance at Cosmic Charlie’s.
Check out photos of all the excitement.
Hayes’ concert was filmed for Instant Jam, so if you didn’t nab tickets or simply want to relive the sold-out performance, you can catch the show on CMT Sept. Sept. 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
