TCU is going country with this year’s fall concert.

Student Body President Maddie Reddick announced this morning that Hunter Hayes will headline the fall concert.

The Grammy nominated singer will perform Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. in the Campus Commons, Reddick said. Ryan Lafferty will open the concert.

“The artist was chosen through a series of discussions among the SGA officers last year,” Reddick said. “We were looking for an artist who would appeal to a large number of students, put on an engaging show, fit in our budget, and was excited to come to TCU.”

Hayes is known for country hits “Storm Warning”, “Wanted” and “21”, with his self-titled album getting a nomination at the 55th annual Grammy awards. Ryan Lafferty will open the concert.

Hayes follows 2014 performer Jason Derulo as the fall concert artist.

More than 5,000 people poured into the Campus Commons for the 2014 fall concert, and it was received well by the student body.

“The Fall Concert is a highly anticipated tradition, one that I hope will bring great excitement to students again this October,” Reddick said. “Though much hard work goes into pulling off the concert, it is all worth it to see the student body gather together in the Commons and enjoy a night of good music, fun, and friends.”
