Sorry, ladies — judging by the lovely lady sitting next to him at the Country Music Association Awards on Nov. 6, Hunter Hayes is officially taken! His female fans are NOT taking it well.
Country’s law-abiding answer to Justin Bieber, Hunter Hayes, has himself a new girlfriend! The 23-year old singer was filmed sitting next to a pretty young lady named Libby Barnes, and he had some pretty sweet stuff to say about her on the red carpet. Hunter’s fans, though supportive of his new love, are feeling preeetty distraught right about now.
Hunter Hayes’ Girlfriend Libby Barnes: Fans React To His New Relationship
“I have a very lovely date actually. She’s gorgeous, and very sweet, too. I’m really lucky,” Hunter told Taste of Country. How cute is that?
Libby is a makeup artist and hairstylist from Nashville. While the two have not explicitly confirmed their dating relationship, the evidence is difficult to deny! (Or accept, if you’re a Hayniac.)
At 25, Libby is two years older than Hunter, according to J-14, and they’ve reportedly been dating for about four months now.
