Hunter Hayes Unveils Music Video for “Dear God” In The Heart of Times Square

Hunter Hayes is set for a big look in the big apple with his official “Dear God” music video.

Currently claiming the top spot on iTunes’ Country Music Videos chart and available now, the visual is making two appearances on Viacom’s twin LED billboards in Times Square today.

The unflinchingly honest and introspective song, which he wrote alongside pop hit-maker Andy Grammer and accomplished songwriter Dave Spencer, has already accumulated 1.34 million first-week Spotify streams, making it his highest first-week stream count to date. Tackling the universally relatable experience of struggling with self-doubt, the multi-instrumentalist also shared a mini-documentary this week chronicling his writing and recording process in the studio which you can watch below.

Hayes recently celebrated the 100 millionth Spotify stream of his 5x multi-platinum single“Wanted,” which received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Solo Performance in 2013. Featured on his 2x multi-platinum debut album Hunter Hayes, the smash hit became his first No. 1 single on the country airplay charts and solidified him as the youngest solo male artist to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart in over 40 years. The self-titled debut has accumulated over half a billion on-demand streams in the US alone and also includes the platinum-certified No. 1“Somebody’s Heartbreak,” the 2x multi-platinum “I Want Crazy” and the gold-certified singles “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me” and “Storm Warning.”

You can also catch Hunter’s video for “Dear God” on CMT, CMT Music, MTV Live and MTVU.
