Sam Hunt kicked off February with a bang by releasing his new single, “Body Like a Back Road”.
“Body Like A Back Road” is from his upcoming studio album, and Sam tells us he intentionally lightened things up with this song.
Sam told us, “It’s a light-hearted song that was a lot of fun to write. I’ve been writing a lot of songs over the past, I guess year and a half, trying to conceptualize a new record and it started taking a heavy direction, and I sat down at one point and I was like okay, ‘I’m gonna lighten this up a little bit. This needs a light flare.’ And it sorta swings and hopefully is easy to listen to and will put a smile on some folks’ face.”
Sam recently Instagrammed a picture of himself and his fiancee, Hannah Lee Fowler, eating pizza which he captioned, “Partner in crime . . . body like a back road.”
This is the second piece of music Sam has put out, essentially since his 2014 album, Montevallo. He gave fans a surprise song, the autobiographical “Drinkin’ Too Much,” on New Year’s Eve.
Sam returns to the road with his 15 in a 30 tour beginning on June 1st in Cleveland, Ohio with special guests Maren Morris, Chris Janson and Ryan Follese. Tonight, (Thursday, February 2nd), Sam performs at Club Nomadic, a traveling nightclub, in Houston prior to the Big Game.
