Like most aspiring musicians who have a knack for stardom, Blaire Hanks started writing songs at the young age of 15. Growing up in a small town in north east Florida, it was there that he started growing a fan base which would later fuel a passion to pursue and create country music for a career. Hanks knew if he had any chance at all in making it in country music, he’d have to make the move from Florida to Nashville, and he did just that at the age of 19. Since that time, it’s been non-stop grinding for the young, up and comer.
If you’re a Sirius XM The Highway fan, like we are here at Country Music #CMchat, then you may have already heard one of his co-written songs, “Buzzin’”. After making the move to Nashville, Hanks met up and collaborated with singer/songwriter Johnny T, where they wrote the single, which was later cut by the latter artist. Having one of your songs played nationally on radio is one of the most gratifying experiences for a new artist, but that’s not the highlight to Hanks young career thus far. Opening up for big time country music acts like Florida Georgia Line and Dustin Lynch has been game changers for him as it has brought his high energy live performance and brand to all new crowds helping to solidify his ever growing fan base.
Blaire released his self-titled debut EP earlier this year which hosts the leadoff single, “Staying In Tonight”. Hanks continues to tour bringing his own unique style of country music to city after city. Check out his single below:
