Max Mutzke is one of the most famous singers in Germany. His songs have a lot to say and express strong feelings. His voice is an all-round talent, whose spectrum ranges from pop, rock and soul to jazz. And he’s a fan of hats. On the covers of his eight studio albums, at his concerts and in private, a hat or cap is his trademark. For this passion, Max Mutzke was named “Hat Wearer of the Year 2022” by the Hutverband GDH eV. As part of International Hat Day on November 25, the 41-year-old musician received an individually designed, golden hat award. He is the 10th hat wearer of the year and heir to prominent hat wearers such as fellow musicians Johannes Oerding, Gregor Meyle and Jan Josef Liefers.
Max Mutzke said during the Golden Hat award ceremony in Cologne:
“It’s amazing that I’m the tenth hat wearer in 2022, that’s a great prize. A great gift, because the last two years have been extremely difficult for us musicians and all cultural workers. And now we artists and consumers have a great deal of uncertainty whether the next concerts can take place in winter. This award is like a small lighthouse for me, in the truest sense of the word! It’s a great honor for me.
I’ll put up the golden hat award at home, I promise! Because the gold hat is not a hollow piece of plastic, but a real tool to make hats. As a craft fan, I really appreciate that. Thank you so much to all the people responsible for my being voted the 10th hat wearer of 2022.”
The hat is the trademark of the musician Max Mutzke
Max Mutzke prefers to wear men’s hats in the shapes player, fedora or traveler in many colors, stylishly worn high at the front, as well as men’s caps time and again. This is how the fans know him from his 70 concerts a year or from his numerous TV appearances with Stefan Raab, as an astronaut on The Masked Singer or on the music talk show “Lebenslieder”. Max Mutzke gives the hat a friendly face. The Hat Association GDH, the Association of German Hat Specialists, thanked them for this and congratulates them on the award.
Max Mutzke was elected by the members, all owner-managed hat shops with a long tradition – the oldest shop was founded 488 years ago. The award has been presented since 2013 as part of the `International Hat Day´ (November 25th) with the support of the hat partners Göttmann, Faustmann, Arlt/McBurn, Gebeana, Fiebig, Kangol and Bailey as well as Bullani.
