On Thursday night’s episode of The X Factor, we were introduced to the chiseled features, perfect hair, long legs and -- oh yeah -- musical stylings of Brennin Hunt, a 26-year-old graphic designer/musician/model from Nashville, TN. In addition to bringing the Hot, Brennin also brought the Talent, giving a strong performance of an original song called “How We Make It.” We knew we needed to see and hear more of Brennin as soon as possible, so we did a little poking around online, and we’re sharing the fruits of our labor with you. Here’s what we learned.

He’s a multi-instrumentalist! According to his website, Brennin plays guitar, piano and drums. “It was when my grandmother gave me my father’s 30-year-old Epiphone guitar as a wavering 12-year-old, I knew I had found home. It felt right; it felt natural; it felt like this is my future,” he said. Below is a video of a longer-haired Brennin playing “How We Make It” on keyboard last year.


He makes every day feel like a holiday! Check out his video of “Please Come Home for Christmas” that he posted on YouTube. It may only be September, but he’s got us in the spirit.
Lose the Hat. Keep the Song

He’s not as cocky as he seems! Brennin claimed on Twitter last night that he was a victim of editing. “They’re really smart with their edits,” he tweeted.
"@BrenninMusic OMG Thank you all for the love and support! I swear I'm not a cocky sex machine like I am portrayed. ;)"

Sorry girls -- or guys -- he’s taken! Turns out that the pretty brunette congratulating Brennin backstage isn’t just his girlfriend, but his WIFE. Brennin married his high school sweetheart, Kelly, in 2006. We’re sure they’re a wonderful couple, but, still: SIGH. We could have had it aaaaaallllllllll...
