Sam Hunt is a Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter from Tennessee. Originally, he didn't perform himself; instead, he wrote songs for other performers. Artists who have sung his lyrics include Keith Urban and Reba McEntire. American country music artist Brad Paisley influenced the former football player. While many identify Sam Hunt as a country singer, too, Hunt slides effortlessly between different genres, incorporating pop and R&B for a non-traditional country music experience.
Country at Heart
Hunt incorporates elements of R&B music into his songs and views country music as a genre that's characterized more by the lyrics than by the rhythm and beats, which are constantly evolving. He won the 2017 Teen Choice Awards for Choice Country Song with his single, "Body Like a Back Road." Hunt has also been recognized by the American Country Countdown Awards. In 2016, he was named Breakthrough Male of the Year, and his album, Montevallo, was crowned Digital Album of the Year. His most recent accolade was his 2018 Gene Weed Milestone Award, bestowed by the Academy of Country Music Awards. Sam Hunt's musical success is ironic. Originally, he drifted towards songwriting because he didn't see himself as musically talented but, rather, as a storyteller. He had to teach himself how to play the guitar but weaving real-life moments, such as referring to his wife Hannah in "Drinkin' Too Much," into song seems to come naturally. In the future, it's likely that Sam Hunt will transition to a more traditional country sound.
