Hunter Hayes Announces "Hunter Hayes' 24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger" 
and Attempts to Break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(R) Record
for Most Concerts Played in Multiple Cities in a 24-Hour Period 
"Hunter Hayes 24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger" Kicks Off May 9
on Good Morning America 
NASHVILLE, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 03/12/14 --  Multiple
GRAMMY-nominee Hunter Hayes and ConAgra Foods have teamed up to end
child hunger while attempting to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(R)
record for the Most Concerts Played in multiple cities in a 24-hour
period. Hunter will kick off the "Hunter Hayes' 24 Hour Road Race to
End Child Hunger," brought to you in part by ConAgra Foods' Child
Hunger Ends Here program, Friday, May 9 on Good Morning America in
New York City. He is attempting to break the record (currently eight
shows in 24 hours set by the Flaming Lips who broke the previous
record made by Jay-Z) by playing 10 shows in 10 cities in 24 hours.
VIP packages for the "24 Hour Road Race" are on sale now. Hunter
recently debuted his music video on Good Morning America for his
current single, "Invisible" featured on his new album Storyline being
released May 6 on Atlantic Records / Warner Music Nashville. 
Hunter recently spoke with the New York Times to talk about how
important this program is to him and why he got involved. Hayes, who
has been working with ConAgra on Child Hunger Ends Here since 2012,
said he "was astonished by the statistics" from Feeding America that
more than one in five American children "aren't sure where their next
meal is coming from. Awareness is key with something like this, but
just as important is that everyone can pitch in to make this story a
better story -- and how easy it is for us to help." 
The "24 Hour Road Race" is also presented in part by Martin Guitars,
Procter & Gamble, Mercedes-Benz USA, and Ahold USA. Hunter is a
Martin Guitar ambassador and will perform on a Martin OM-42 at each
show, which will be auctioned at the end of the event to benefit the
cause. Mercedes-Benz USA is the official car vehicle of the "24 Hour
Road Race." 
While Hayes sets his sights on setting the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(R)
record for the most concerts in one day, Child Hunger Ends Here is
issuing a challenge to break their own record for the most meals
donated in 24 hours. To help us break this record and end child
hunger, look for the red pushpin and locate the code found on
specially marked ConAgra Foods products. For each 8-digit code
entered at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com, ConAgra Foods will donate the
monetary equivalent of one meal to Feeding America.**
