"I always think of music as more of a dialogue, you know. It's not just about me sharing my stories with other people, but about listening to theirs as well. It's this beautiful experience we share together, and technology gives us a way to continue that conversation," Hayes remarked in a press statement.
The Atlantic Nashville recording artist added, "It's awesome that so many fans tune in every week to see what we're up to. I love having that connection with them."
In January of 2015, Hayes took home the People's Choice Award for "Best Male Country Artist."
This summer, Hayes will be touring with Grammy-winning country group Lady Antebellum and Sam Hunt on the "Wheels Up Tour," and one of their tour stops will be at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York.
