As a child, Hayden Haddock would watch the CMA Awards with his relatives and, he was fascinated by the music during the award show. He would sit so close to the TV and sing along to the performances. At the age of 14, he went to his first concert, Eric Church. After attending Church’s concert, he decided to take guitar lessons.
Just last year, he started his first year at Texas A&M University and was majoring in Construction Science. While Haddock was in his dorm, he heard a knock from a young girl. The girl had heard him playing his guitar and asked him if he would sing her a song. He tried everything he could to talk her out of it, but then his roommate came out and they both persuaded him to sing. He sang them a Luke Comb’s song and without him knowing his roommate filmed him and uploaded it on YouTube, and also sent out to people they knew. And this how his country music career started.
Whenever he had spare time, he practiced and wrote his own songs. He next played at a few local acoustic shows. Haddock is now performing every weekend around Texas with many TV appearances including Dallas’ ABC “Good Moring Texas,” “CBS Austin “We Are Austin,” and on CBS “Bryan/College Station’s Free Music Friday.” He has had also got the chance to open up for Ray Benson of Asleep at The Wheel and Casey Donahew and has played at the same events with Whiskey Myers, Cory Morrow and the Eli Young Band. Some of Haddock’s favorite musicians are rooted from his home state of Texas, with legends like George Strait and Cody Johnson and also country singers like Luke Combs, Jon Pardi and Eric Church.
Haddock debut album “First Rodeo,” was released in December 2018. On this album he worked with some famous names in the music industry, including 3 time Grammy award winning Tre Nagella at Luminous Sound in Dallas. Tre has worked with musicians such as Blake Shelton, Lady Gaga and Kirk Franklin.
As Haddock’s status continues to grow, he will be playing a lot more shows and more crowded concerts across the state and elsewhere including the event for The National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas to headlining shows in Clovis, New Mexico in March 2019.
Haddock’s music is available to listen and download on both Spotify and iTunes. If you would like to find out more about Hayden Haddock then check out his website https://haydenhaddock.com.
