I don’t think there has been a more surprising new country artist over the last year than Sam Hunt. He’s had success as a songwriter and then his singing career really took off last year. Now he’s coming off back to back number one hits and he’s looking for more.
Check out his new single.
House Party – Sam Hunt
Is this traditional country?
But traditional country had to start somewhere. It started with people trying new sounds and new types of music. That’s what Sam Hunt has been doing with his debut record. And people have been buying that album like crazy.
I check the album charts each week and his debut record has been at or near the top for the last several months. I feel like new albums come out and push his record down for a few weeks and then his gets right back up there.
I think one of the things people are loving about his is that:
1. He’s different. He has a fresh sound and people dig things that sound different, but…
2. His music is incredibly catchy. People wouldn’t listen over and over unless the music was catchy and that’s one thing that Sam really has going for him. He is the master of melody right now in the country world.
This song is pretty clever too. You think it’s going to be just another typical party song, but it’s not really that way. The beat is catchy, but it’s all about these two young lovers spending the night together having their own party. They don’t need to go out and get crazy with anyone else. They would rather be together just the two of them.
Pretty cool stuff from one of country’s most exciting new artists.
