When someone is dedicated to their craft, they'll put in a countless number of hours doing what they love. For young country star Hunter Hayes, dedication has paid off in the form of the Guinness World Record for the most concerts in a 24 hour period. Hunter performed an impressive 10 stops on his 24 Hour Road Race, where he partnered with ConAgra Foods to raise money to help end child hunger. The previous record for greatest number of shows in 24 hours was 8, set by The Flaming Lips and Jay-Z. The rules to qualify for the World Record were pretty straightforward: "having at least 300 people fill each certified music venue, having each venue be at least 31 miles away from the previous location, having each show last at least 15 minutes and having everyone abide by laws (i.e. no speeding)." Hunter started his attempt at 8:17am on Good Morning America with a performance of his new single "Invisible," which he wrote to describe how he felt in school. "Invisible" is the lead single off of Hayes' new record Storyline, which debuted at #1 on the country music charts following its release May 6th.

Hunter broke the record in Ashbury Park in New Jersey but then headed to Philly where he was presented with the Guinness World Record Certificate. Throughout the non-stop day of shows, Hunter stayed his upbeat self, and quoted his own lyrics to celebrate breaking the Record, "Dare to be something more." Congrats to Hunter Hayes for this amazing feat! Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
