It's only been a few years since he hit the Nashville music scene, but no doubt Sam Hunt has made a name for himself in both country and pop music. His unique style of almost rapping while he sings sets him apart from most of the country artists you hear today. He first moved to Nashville in 2008 where he started as a songwriter. He wrote several hits for artists such as Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Billy Currington and Reba McEntire.

Hunt signed a recording contract with MCA Nashville in 2014 and scored a number one hit with his first single "Leave the Night On". His debut album Montevallo reached the top of the charts with four number one singles. Earlier this year, he released the lead single from his second album "Body Like a Back Road".

This month, Sam Hunt starts his second headlining tour 15 In A 30 with Maren Morris, Chris Janson and Ryan Follesé.
