Up and coming country music sensation Hunter Hayes is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for most concerts played in 24 hours this May. The singer will be attempting to break the record in order to help fight back against child hunger.
The current record is held by Jay-Z and The Flaming Lips who held and performed eight concerts in 24 hours.
Billboard reported that Hayes' goal is to perform 10 concerts on May 9th, starting on Good Morning America.
Other concert stops include Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The "Wanted" singer will conclude in Philadelphia with a 5 a.m. concert taking place at the Trocadero in Philadelphia, Taste of Country reported.
