Sam Hunt made history in September 2016 by becoming the first country music solo musician to have five singles off a debut album top the Country Airplay charts. He achieved this feat when the fifth single from his debut album Montevallo, “Make You Miss Me” topped the charts.
Hunt’s Successful “Southside” Project
Sam’s sophomore project, Southside, which was released on the 3rd of April last year, was certified platinum during the coronavirus pandemic. Its hugely commercial success can be attributed to hit songs like “Body Like A Back Road”, the soothing ballad, ” Hard To Forget”, and “Breaking Up Was Easy In The 90s”.
His hit song, “Body Like A Back Road” won the Record Of The Year at the 2018 American Country Music Awards. Presently, the third single from his second album, “Breaking Up Was Easy In The 90s”, is making waves on the Billboard Country Airplay charts.
It was expected that Sam Hunt would go on tour to promote the album, which he planned as the Southside Summer Tour. The tour was to include performances by Kip Moore, Travis Dennin, Ernest K. Smith, and Brandi Cyprus. However, it had to be canceled in the face of the outbreak of the coronavirus globally.
While eager to get back to life as a touring musician, Sam does not intend to go on a full tour, as he has planned to perform in some festivals this year.
