About Wanted

"Wanted" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Hunter Hayes. It was released in March 2012 as the second single from his debut album Hunter Hayes (2011). Hayes co-wrote the song with Troy Verges. The song was nominated for Best Country Solo Performance at the 2013 Grammy Awards. It is the second best-selling song by a male solo country singer in the US as of April 2014. Billboard ranked it the third-greatest country single of all time according to chart performance. Upon release, "Wanted" was met with generally positive reviews and went on to be certified 4× Platinum in the US for sales of over 3.6 million. When the song topped the Hot Country Songs chart, Hayes broke the record held since 1973 by Johnny Rodriguez's "You Always Come Back (To Hurting Me)" as the youngest male artist to reach number one. The single was a moderate crossover hit in 2013 when it climbed to the top 15 on both the Adult Pop Songs and Adult Contemporary charts.
