Hunter Hayes revealed this week he often forgets to carry his credentials backstage at the Blown Away Tour with Carrie Underwood.
“I had just walked in from my meet-and-greet and I didn’t have it on because I was taking pictures with people. I walked towards my dressing room and I walk pass the security guard, and he stops me like, ‘No.’ I’m like, ‘It’s cool, I’m going to go to the bus – it’s cool.’ He is like, ‘No, I can’t let you do that.’ I was like, ‘That’s a problem! I don’t have my pass and I have to get to the bus!’ So it has been a fun little learning experience!”
The near-breach in security hasn’t kept Hunter from having a stellar year, recently capturing his first No. 1 with “Wanted” and even getting big Grammy and ACM nominations.
The second leg of the “Blown Away Tour” kicks off Feb. 13 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
