Hunter Hayes meets up with contest winner Alex Bell on Friday (February 6) at Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles.
The 23-year-old country singer helped reveal her as the winner of Whirlpool brand’s Every day, Care campaign, after she submitted a touching version of “You Are My Sunshine” that will be part of a 60-second commercial airing in front of tens of millions of people.
“It’s all about saying something and relaying a message,” Hunter told JJJ. “This campaign is essentially a chance for someone to send a message to someone else. The whole deal is you tell your story about someone who cared for you every day in your life, in a profound way, or in a way that they may not realize was profound, but it was to you. It’s all about sending a message to someone who cares for you and showing them you appreciate them.”
As for who he appreciates in his own life, Hunter told us,” Where do I start? From my family to the hardworking men and women who go on the road with us…my team that’s around me, all of my friends who support me in ways that they don’t even know. And the fans. We thank them all the time and I thank them in meet and greets, but I don’t think it’s ever fully truly portrayed how much they impact our lives.”
