Platinum selling country singer/songwriter Hunter Hayes premiered his new single “I Want Crazy” last night on the Academy of Country Music Awards.
“I Want Crazy” is the first single off of Hayes’ reboot of his debut album “Hunter Hayes (Encore).” The song starts with a strong catchy guitar riff much like that of his first single “Storm Warning.”
Hayes’ voice comes in strong talking about catching a flight to see is love’s eyes and the “fall” he took for her.
“Yeah, our first date, girl, the season changed/That got washed away in a summer rain/You can’t undo a fall like this/’Cause love don’t know what distance is.”
The song’s theme revolves around Hayes ability to only think about his girl and describes the best love is one filled with unexplainable feelings and spontaneous actions spawned for your feelings.
“Yeah, I wanna be scared, don’t wanna know why/I wanna feel good, don’t have to be right/The world makes all kinds of rules for love/I say you gotta let it do what it does.”
