Hunter Hayes is out to break the record of live concert endurance. In the name of fighting child hunger, he'll attempt to break the Guinness World Record of concerts played in a 24-hour period this May.

More Hunter Hayes:

On May 9, the country singer will set out to perform 10 concerts in that timespan, beginning on "Good Morning America" at 8 a.m. in New York City. From there, he'll travel up and down the Northeastern United States, bouncing from Massachusetts to Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania before all is said and done. The marathon will conclude at 5 a.m. in Philadelphia with a 5 a.m. set at the Trocadero.

The previous record is eight concerts in a 24-hour period, held by the Flaming Lips and Jay Z.

The record attempt is in cooperation with ConAgra Foods and the Child Hunger Ends Here Program, whom Hayes has worked with since 2012. Hence, the tour's official title is Hunter Hayes' 24 Hour Road Race to End Child Hunger. Read more about Hayes' charitable endeavors here.
