Hailing from Cedartown, Ga., country singer-songwriter Sam Hunt catapulted to success with his distinctive style after a career as a college quarterback. The 32-year-old saw some songwriting success before hitting country radio himself, with co-writing credit on Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over,” Keith Urban’s “Cop Car” and Billy Currington’s “We Are Tonight.” His first single, “Raised On It,” was released in 2013, and his 2014 single “Leave the Night On” shot to No. 1 on the country charts. His album Montevallo was released in 2014 and debuted at No. 1 on the country chart and No. 3 on the pop chart. Other hits from that album include “Take Your Time,” “House Party” and “Break Up in a Small Town.” His most recent No. 1 single “Body Like a Back Road” comes off his yet-to-be-released second studio album.
