My name is Noah Hunton, I’m a 21 year old country singer, songwriter from Ocala Florida. I started singing when I was young and was hooked ever since. I started singing and writing country music through middle school & high school. I have never had any vocal lessons or guitar lessons; I guess you can say it’s a natural born gift from God. Now I have had amazing opportunity’s to opened up for Craig Campbell, Brandon Heath, The band Hinder, also Charlie Farley and more. I love what I do and love to bring smiles to everyone’s faces with my music. I aspire to one day to perform at the Grand Ole Opry.
