Acadiana's own Hunter Hayes is featured in the new issue of the wildly popular 'Sexiest Man Alive' issue that People Magazine comes out with every year. The new issue was released last week, and Hunter is featured in the 'Dudes with Dogs' section.

You can see him talking about his two furry friends, Cole, who is a retired racing greyhound, and Ella, a whippet-beagle mix in the video below.

Hunter's love of rescuing dogs is well known, and he also performed at the 'Love of Dogs' Benefit Concert presented by Hallmark Channel and PEDIGREE Foundation at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on October 10 in Nashville. We are so proud of our Breaux Bridge native and his big heart!
