The biggest highlight from Hunter’s year is, of course, the release of his sophomore album Storyline. Released in May, the album was critically and commercially well-received — it debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and at #1 on the Top Country Albums chart. Not too shabby!
He debuted the first single to Storyline — “Invisible” — at the Grammys in January. The single, released on the same day, went on to sell 35,000 copies following his performance. Not only that, but according to a press release from Hunter’s camp, for every purchase of the single on iTunes, “Child Hunger Ends Here [donated] the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding American, up to 1 million meals.”

How many 23-year-olds do you know who donate their hard-earned cash to charity?
He didn’t stop there in his partnership with Child Hunger Ends Here — in May, Hunter played 10 shows in 10 cities in 24 hours beginning with a performance on Good Morning America to raise awareness for the cause, breaking The Flaming Lips‘ previously-held Guinness record of eight shows in 24 hours.
Hunter is currently touring as he continues to promote Storyline; the Tattoo (Your Name) tour launched Aug. 30, and The Railers are opening for him across North America.
