Acadiana’s own Hunter Hayes won the New Artist of the Year award at the 2012 CMA Awards! The 21 year old Breaux Bridge native, who plays multiple instruments and writes his own songs, looked genuinely surprised and downright tickled onstage.

He thanked God, his family, fans, label, management and crew, which came from the success of his No. 1 single ‘Wanted’ — which he performed on the show earlier in the evening. His incredible success will continue, we predict, since he’s SO talented, and because he will open for Carrie Underwood on her Blown Away Tour, including a stop here in Lafayette at the Cajundome.

Here’s the list of all of the 2012 CMA winners.
