Single Review: Hunter Hayes (Feat. Jason Mraz) - Everybody's Got Somebody But Me
By: Matt Bjorke
The very first time I heard "Everybody's Got Somebody But Me" on Hunter Hayes' self-titled album, it felt like something that would make a great single and here we are, nearly two years later and the track is the fifth single from the album. Now re-mixed/recorded to feature Jason Mraz, the single showcases everything there's to like about Hunter Hayes as a singer, a songwriter and artist.
As a vocalist, Hunter showcases a vocal flexibility that bends notes with ease while as a songwriter this sub three minute song showcases Hunter's ability to write a tight, easy-to-digest lyric along with one of the biggest ear worm-like melodies on his album. That the song is definitely a Country song (it's acoustic-based and features plenty of steel guitars) doesn't hurt either.
Jason Mraz is one of Hunter Hayes' biggest influences outside of country music and together they blend together quite well. With a string of three #1 Gold and Platinum hits on his hands from his Platinum-certified debut album, Hunter Hayes' train will certainly keep going with "Everybody's Got Somebody But Me," a song which still is one of the best songs of his young career.
