Sam Hunt may be one of the most unexpected success stories in contemporary country music. The singer-songwriter got his start writing hits for other artists, including Kenny Chesney’s 2012 hit “Come Over,” Keith Urban’s “Cop Car” and “We Are Tonight” for Billy Currington in 2014. That same year he released an EP titled ‘X2C,’ followed by his full-length debut album, ‘Montevallo.’ The project brings together a wide variety of diverse influences, including country, R&B, pop and rock. Its first single, “Leave the Night On,” was an instant success at country radio, reaching No. 1. Its follow-up, “Take Your Time,” features some genre-bending spoken-word phrasing in the verses, and has defied convention to also hit No. 1 on the U.S Hot Country chart. Hunt’s first headlining tour sold out in 15 markets within minutes of going on sale.

  • Birth Name: Sam Lowry Hunt
  • Top Songs: "Leave the Night On," "Take Your Time," "Cop Car"
  • Did You Know? Hunt played football in high school and college, and majored in philosophy at UAB.
