Hunter Hayes: 'Taylor Swift gave me great advice and she's not afraid to bare her soul'

Country singer Hunter Hayes is currently in the UK to promote his brand new single 'Tattoo' and he revealed that touring with superstar Taylor Swift taught him a lot about how to approach his career and how to hone his live show. 

Speaking to Digital Spy, the heartthrob explained that the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' beauty gave him some great advice while they were on the road together and he is now applying it to what he does:

"She was really cool obviously the whole time. Just really welcoming and open if advice was needed. But it was more about just watching a show every night and studying it. Taylor's an awesome live performer with a really fun live show. Getting to see ten shows in a row, studying it every night and noticing the nuances and differences and if there are any changes, what do they mean, where did they come from? That's a really fun game for me to play and I love learning by example, I love watching her interaction with her fans."

He went onto add that seeing another artist being vulnerable and succeeding in her career is a constant source of inspiration: "I love watching the live show and how every song takes on a new shape. And then as well, just learning from a vulnerable songwriter, from a songwriter who bares the soul and says, 'This is life, this is the journal and this is me'. And not being afraid of that."
