Country singer/songwriter, guitarist, and pianist Sam Hunt was born and raised in rural Cedartown, Georgia, where he was a gifted athlete. Hunt was also drawn to music, however, and after college, he headed off to Nashville to begin a songwriting career. Quickly signed to a publishing deal, he broke through with songs he wrote or co-wrote for country stars Kenny Chesney ("Come Over," which went on to become a number one single), Keith Urban ("Cop Car"), and Billy Currington ("We Are Tonight"). Hunt then signed to MCA Nashville as a performer, and his single "Leave the Light On" became a number one country hit, setting the stage for the 2014 release of his debut, Montevallo. His next three singles were all hits--"House Party" and "Make You Miss Me" hit number one, and if "Break Up in a Small Town" didn't reach that peak, it exceeded those other two in sales--and kept him on the radio into 2016. Early in 2017, he returned with "Body Like a Back Road," the first single from his second album. ~ Steve Leggett
