Red Hen Nashville


Erwin Family 2017


From Walker, Louisiana, southern boy Hunter Erwin has been on the road singing Christian Country music all across the U.S. since 2008.  It was Christmas 2007, after struggling for years with whether to leave his job and go into full time ministry, that Hunter walked away from his career to trust God completely to provide for his family.  “It was as if God was saying, ‘Hunter, I want you to depend totally on me.’  I just couldn’t struggle with it anymore.  By January, it was all said and done, and Heather and I haven’t looked back!”

Hunter has been given a host of titles by the Christian Country Honor Awards (CCMNow) for multiple years, such as:  New Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Video of the Year.  Though it is nice to be acknowledged, Hunter says that is not what it is all about for him.  Why this “country” style of Christian music, one may ask?  “It’s for the saved to enjoy, and the lost to understand,” shared Hunter.  “Those who don’t attend church don’t always like the same style of music those of us raised in church appreciate.  They need music relevant to them, music they are drawn to.”

One of Hunter’s biggest blessings has been to open for the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty fame just before the family members preached at many events around the country.  Phil Robertson is a huge fan of Christian Country music and had Hunter over to visit one night in his home.  After about 10 minutes of singing and sharing God’s Word, Phil said, “You can stay here or go with me crawfishing!”  After traps were dumped in the boat where Hunter’s wife Heather sat terrified, the feast was held.  Hunter sang and then Phil shared stories about many folks he has witnessed coming to the Lord.  It was a night Hunter will never forget.

“I’ve known since I was a kid, God had this ministry for me.  I grew up in church and was baptized at age 7.  The water was over my head, so they had to tie an old milk crate down in the water with bailing wire for me to stand on.  Even at that young age, God had begun His plan in me.  When you’re called to do something and God places you in a place to do it, you just have to do it!” says Hunter. “The passion and calling never goes away.”

“We think of Hunter as our laid back ‘George Strait’ or ‘Kenny Chesney.’  His smooth baritone vocals remind us of those two artists.  You won’t meet a finer young man,” said Rick Schweinsberg, A & R Director of Red Hen.
