It seems like Sam Hunt has his groove back.
He was open about his struggles with writers block and figuring out what to write about for his sophomore album.
Then seemingly out of nowhere he released Drinkin’ Too Much and apparently that was just a little teaser to whats’s coming up from the artist this year.
Now he has the official next single out and it debuted very high on the radio charts this past week.
Check it out.
Body Like A Back Road – Sam Hunt
Some people in country don’t like Sam Hunt’s style. But many people do and I include myself in the latter. I think he’s totally sincere about his style of music and that’s easy to respect.
The hook on this song is that the narrator is getting together with a girl that he’s known a long time. They fall right back into place and he knows her body just like he knows the back roads of his hometown.
He doesn’t need directions. He can close his eyes and know exactly where all the twists and turns are.
That’s a unique way to approach a love song. It’s fun. It’s sexy. It’s all those things and it still brings the country into the fold by making the back road connection. That small town life has been part of Sam’s music for along time back to when he was writing for other artists.
It’s great to have Sam back and finding success with his new music. He’s a good thing for country music.
