Pensacola, FL – February 17, 2014 – GRAMMY nominated artist Hunter Hayes will head out this March on his “We’re Not Invisible Tour,” playing May 30, 2014 at the Pensacola Bay Center. The tour will feature special guests Danielle Bradbery from NBC’s Emmy award-winning show The Voice and Warner Bros. Records new country duo Dan + Shay.  The “We’re Not Invisible Tour” comes on the heels of Hunter’s sold-out “CMT On Tour: Let’s Be Crazy Tour” which wrapped this past December to much critical acclaim.


Hayes’ latest single “Invisible,” which is the debut track from his forthcoming album due this May, world premiered on the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards January 26thwhere he was nominated for “Best Country Solo Performance” for his multi-week No. 1 single, “I Want Crazy.”

The tour is presented in part by Child Hunger Ends Here.  For every download of “Invisible” on iTunes, Child Hunger Ends Here will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America, up to 1 million meals**.



Four-time GRAMMY nominated artist, Hunter Hayes, is a multi-talented performer, musician, producer, and writer. His critically acclaimed Atlantic Records self-titled album garnered three consecutive No. 1 singles, selling over eight million singles to date while the album itself has been certified platinum by the R.I.A.A. His current Grammy nomination for Best Country Solo Performance for his No. 1 single “I Want Crazy” marks his fourth Grammy nomination off his debut release.  Hunter is currently featured as one of Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30″ and has played over 500 dates since 2011. The Louisiana native has headlined sold out venues across the US and Canada and recently wrapped the sold out CMT On Tour: Hunter Hayes’ Let’s Be Crazy tour this past fall. For more information, on Facebook at and follow Hunter on Twitter




Seventeen-year-old Danielle Bradbery charmed her way into the national spotlight with her sweet, soulful sound and quintessential personality, winning season 4 of The Voice and seeing multiple performances reach #1 on the iTunes Country Singles chart. The youngest to ever take the title, coach Blake Shelton called Danielle, ”the most important artist to ever walk across The Voice stage.” The Team Blake darling made surprise appearances on his TEN TIMES CRAZIER TOUR last summer and is currently opening for Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Winter Tour.” Danielle’s self-titled debut album on Big Machine Records features the Top 15-and-rising lead single “The Heart of Dixie.” She has appeared on the CW’s Hart of DixieKATIE and ABC’s The View and NBC is using her song “My Day” for their Sochi Winter Olympics campaign. Follow Danielle’s journey here: or



Nashville newcomers Dan + Shay became the most added new duo of 2013 at country radio with their breakout debut hit “19 You + Me.” Rising into the Top 20 on the Country Chart after only 13 weeks, the track was written by the pair along with Nashville songwriter Danny Orton. The nostalgic feel-good single is the first track from their forthcoming album, due out later this year on Warner Bros. Records. Made up of Dan Smyers, a Pittsburgh, PA native, and Shay Mooney, originally of Natural Dam, AR, the two realized they had a special musical connection after meeting at a party at Smyers’ house in his tented out living room only one year ago. What started as a late night jam session among new friends, led to daily writing sessions that resulted in songs which quickly caught the attention of publishers, label heads and radio programmers alike. Written entirely by Smyers and Mooney, produced by Smyers and co-produced by Scott Hendricks and Orton, the duo are putting the finishing touches on the yet to be titled debut album. Dan + Shay are excited to bring their infectious original sound to fans on the upcoming Hunter Hayes “We’re Not Invisible” and Blake Shelton “Ten Times Crazier 2014” tours.

This chocolate is for a cause.  By participating in the 11th Annual Chocolate Fest, you are helping to raise funds that ensure child victims of abuse and neglect receive timely, effective and streamlined treatment.  At Gulf Coast Kid’s House, we facilitate a collaborative response to the abuse cases; ensuring that medical exams, recorded interviews, prosecution, and mental health counseling occur in one child-friendly facility.  This “one-stop” concept greatly reduces the trauma children experience and leads to better case outcomes.  In 2012, GCKH provided services to approximately 2000 child victims of abuse and neglect.  Please consider joining us for Chocolate Fest 2014.  This annual event brings much needed awareness and support to GCKH and child abuse issues.

GCKH serves a critical role in our community, giving abused children a safe, child-centered place to report the abuse they have suffered and providing timely, effective assistance designed to address the specific trauma each child has experienced. Through this coordinated effort, children and families experience reduced trauma and better case coordination, leading to better case outcomes.
