Did OUT Magazine Just Out Country Singer Hunter Hayes In Their 100 Most Eligible Bachelors 2017 Vote?


This week OUT Magazine released its 100 Most Eligible Bachelors 2017 nominees for its readers to vote on.

At number 56 on their list was twenty-five-year-old, country singer and five-time Grammy nominee Hunter Hayes.

The only problem is Hunter Hayes has never come out as gay and is in all probability is straight.

Hayes has never mentioned anything about being gay, or even bi-sexual.  An intensive search of Google has turned up nothing, and it is reported that he has a longtime girlfriend by the name of Libby Barnes which he recently recorded his last song for.

Do does OUT which is owned by Regent Entertainment Media, Inc., a division of Here Media which also owns the Advocate  know something that we don’t and just outed the kid? (Which would probably not be good for him seeing that  he is in country music) Or is this just another in a long line of mistakes by the LGBT media publication.

We’ll keep you updated.

  1. Well, looking back now (it’s 2019), he seems to have been removed from that list. I was a little excited it may be true, but I do think it was a glaring mistake that some publicists made sure was quickly corrected.
