Sam Hunt Takes a Trip Down Memory Lane With ’23’ Video
The clip features three exhausted individuals winding down after a long day. They appear caught up in a life devoid of the spark of youth and young love, but this changes when each of them puts on their powerful VR headset. Instantaneously, time rewinds as they relive a vibrant time in their youth that brimmed with romance and big dreams — something that had faded with age and time.
"No matter where I go, no matter what I do / I'll never be 23, with anyone but you / You can marry who you want / Go back to Tennessee / But you'll never be 23 with anyone but me / We'll always have Folly Beach / We'll always have Delta nights / We'll always be in between real love and real life," Hunt sings in the breezy chorus against a picturesque sunset.
Last month, Hunt shared an acoustic performance video of "23," which he recorded at Nashville’s historic Ocean Way Studio:
Penned by Hunt, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Chris LaCorte, "23" is the first new single since the singer’s sophomore album, Southside, which dropped last year. The 12-track record spawned the singles "Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s," "Hard to Forget," "Kinfolks," "Downtown’s Dead" and the smash hit "Body Like a Back Road."
