Who is Sam Hunt?
Singer/songwriter Sam Hunt exploded onto the country music scene in 2014 with the release of his debut studio album, Montevallo. The album broke several chart records, spawning five singles including three consecutive Hot Country Songs and four Country Airplay number ones. The lead single from the album, “Leave the Night On,” peaked concurrently on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, making Hunt the first country artist in 22 years (since Billy Ray Cyrus) to reach the top of three country charts simultaneously in the Nielsen SoundScan-era. Another single, “Make You Miss Me,” hit number one on the Country Airplay Chart, making Hunt the first solo male artist to land four number ones on the chart from a debut studio album.
Before his successful solo career, Hunt worked behind the scenes writing singles for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Billy Currington, and Reba McEntire. He has quickly earned praise and recognition from both inside and outside the country music community for his fearless artistry, incorporating elements of R&B and pop in the production and songwriting of his material. Hunt has received several prestigious awards throughout his short time in the spotlight, including an American Music Award and a CMT Music Award, as well as nominations for the Billboard Music Awards and the Grammys.
