“I wouldn’t say stage fright necessarily, but I’m definitely always nervous,” Hunter recently dished about having any sort of stage fright.

He added, “You can’t get nervous when you’re that young, but I just loved being in front of audiences. Nobody in our family’s musical and I just feel like I was blessed to fall in love with music really early on. Stepping on stage gives me a chance to really be myself, and writing and listening to music is my language.”

John Legend Talks Hunter Hayes' Bluegrass Version of 'All of Me': 'I Was So Impressed With Him'

Hunter Hayes swings by the Samsung Galaxy Owner’s Lounge during the 2014 Country Music Awards Festival on Friday afternoon (June 6) in Nashville, Tenn.

Earlier in the week, the 22-year-old musician shared the stage with Jennifer Nettles and John Legend to premiere their bluegrass version of John‘s song, “All of Me” at the CMT Music Awards.

“They asked me if I’d be interested in arranging a version of ‘All of Me’ for [Legend and Nettles],” Hunter dished to Rolling Stone Country. “John was like, ‘I play piano a lot and I want to do something different.’ So I got on the phone with him and he was talking about acoustics and I said, ‘John, hear me out: What if we did a bluegrass version?’ And he was all about it. He said, ‘Man, try it. Let’s have fun with it.’”

John shared about the new arrangement, “Hunter arranged the song so beautifully. I was so impressed with him. I think it’s so gorgeous and a new way to present the song that everyone’s heard a thousand times now.”

Hunter added, “I’m really excited about it because it speaks to my heart. I get to hear a song that I love in a version that has the sonic characteristics that I love. It was a great opportunity for me. I got to produce John Legend and Jennifer Nettles! Hopefully it’ll happen again. It was a brilliant experience.”

The new version of “All of Me” is out NOW on iTunes!
