Country heartthrob Hunter Hayes will be performing a concert for CMT’s Instant Jam series in Lexington, Wednesday night. Hayes, who will open Thursday night’s Lady Antebellum concert at Rupp Arena, tweeted the news Tuesday morning and says he will release the when-and-where information at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Instant Jam is a series featuring pop-up concerts by country stars such as Darius Rucker and Florida Georgia Line. Sunday, Hayes tweeted, “Just checked out ‘s surprise show thing, absolutely brilliant. Kinda got me thinking…”

Guess he thought fast.

The last time Hayes was in Lexington, he gave one of the strongest performances at the WBUL’s all-star Acoustic Jam concert at the Lexington Opera House.
