RAF Molesworth -- When five-time Grammy nominated musician Hunter Hayes hit the stage with “I Want Crazy,” that’s exactly what he got. Nearly 500 fans from RAF Alconbury and RAF Molesworth in the United Kingdom danced, cheered and sang along to such platinum hits as “Wanted” and “Invisible” during a 90-minute show in a historic WWII Hangar at RAF Molesworth.

Armed Forces Entertainment and Navy Entertainment collaborated to sponsor and organize this night of country music - on the heels of Hayes’ Country 2 Country tour - that brought high morale and a bit of home for troops and their families stationed in England.  Though at times his songs were muted by the deafening screams of his teenaged fans, troops and their families were seen dancing and swaying to his high-energy platinum hits.

Hayes, who plays thirty instruments, spent exceptional time engaging his fans, inviting audience participation on the song “Everybody’s Got Somebody but Me” and an emotional performance of “Invisible,” a song he co-wrote about his personal experience with high school bullying. After wrapping up over an hour of audience-focused entertainment, his many fans were anxious for an encore so Hayes did not disappoint, returning to the stage with an amazing rendition of Prince’s “Kiss,” followed by a meet and greet where he took photos and shook hands with many of his guests.

Earlier in the day, Hayes and his band spent time with the Security Forces squadron, met with local troops, and personally thanked service members for their dedication. FSS Community Services Flight Chief Jamie Compton found Hayes to be “humble and grounded” and noted that he was “very appreciative” of what our troops are doing, saying that “I believe he got as much out of this as we did from him.” 

With the biggest turnout in concert history at RAF Molesworth, Compton is excited to work with Armed Forces and Navy Entertainment in bringing more big name shows to the U.K. in the future. Hayes, a big supporter of the military, “had a great impact on our troops and families by just being here,” Compton said.  Watching the hundreds of troops and families taking time to dance and sing reminded the entire FSS and community support team that “This is why we do it.”
