NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Country singer Hunter Hayes knows a thing or two about hurricanes.
The south Louisiana native has seen his share of storms and even named his breakout single "Storm Warning" - about a beautiful girl he compares to a "Cat 5" hurricane.
On Friday, the accordion-playing, harmonica-blowing singer returns to Louisiana as the area cleans up from Hurricane Isaac for a concert benefiting a New Orleans hospital. He's also scheduled to sing the national anthem at the New Orleans Saints football game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday - his 21st birthday.
Hayes says it'll be a welcomed homecoming after a breakout year that included tours with Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts.
He hits the road again later this year as the opening act on Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away" tour.
