Country music artist Hunter Hayes was featured on Nickelodeon's "Figure It Out" television show back in 1998! Watch him as a six-year-old here!

Throwing it back to 1998, Hunter Hayes made his first appearance of stardom as he aroused a live audience and panel of judges on Nickelodeon’s Figure It Out.

The 20-year-old episode features 6-year-old Hunter entertaining the crowd and the panel, as they try to figure out the youngster’s special talent. The Louisiana native stood in front of the live audience and played an accordion while showing off his vocals with “Jambalaya.”

After he finished performing, host Summer Sanders asked Hayes if he wanted to be in a band in the future, and to no surprise, the (now) multi-platinum-selling country artist responded with an affirmative “yes.”

Prior to his appearance on Figure It Out, (at just four-years-old) the little star was on stage with Hank Williams Jr. singing “Jambalaya” for a large audience while playing his accordion. Watch that moment below!

The country star released his newest single “One Shot” back in August and is available everywhere. Billboard referred to Hayes’ new song as an “instant party anthem.” Check out the animated music video!

“One Shot” Lyrics

Hashtag “no filter”
Said a lot of stuff that I don’t remember
Lord knows I’m guilty
Of a lot of sins that I don’t wanna live with
Mama’d probably cut me off the family tree
If she heard half the stories people tellin’ me

Oh s***, there’s proof
Insta’s out there telling all my truth
I can’t lie, so I own it
Been a rough week, so what? I deserve it
Sorry to the Uber guy that took me home
It’s kinda sad but I’m kinda glad I’m wakin’ up alone

I started with one shot
To have a good time
Everybody knows how easy one can turn into five
But don’t judge me, ’cause it ain’t nobody’s life but mine
And I only get one shot
So I take it one shot at a time

Yeah
Take it one shot at a time
Hey
One shot at a time

Mess up, live and learn
Repent and repeat, build the bridge and burn it
No shame, just secrets
Got a lot of memories, not a lot of regrets
Every time I said I’d never do it again
Was right before I headed out for one more spin

I started with one shot
To have a good time
Everybody knows how easy one can turn into five
But don’t judge me, ’cause it ain’t nobody’s life but mine
And I only get one shot
So I take it one shot at a time

Yeah
Take it one shot at a time
Hey
One shot at a time

I think my fear of missing out
Makes me do the one thing I could do without

It starts with one shot
To have a good time
Everybody knows how easy one can turn into five
But don’t judge me, ’cause it ain’t nobody’s life but mine
And I only get one shot
So I take it one shot at a time

Yeah
Take it one shot at a time
One shot at a time
One shot at a time
One shot at a time
