Sam Hunt Plans Unique Cover Medley for Lipstick Graffiti Tour Shows
Fresh off the success of his No. 1 debut album, 'Montevallo,' Sam Hunt is getting ready to embark on his own Lipstick Graffiti Tour. But while the singer-songwriter, who has penned songs for Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and Billy Currington, has plenty of hits to draw from, he says that he plans on reaching into a previous decade during his setlist.
"We're going to do a section where we do a medley of songs from the '90s," Hunt tells Rolling Stone Country, "of all female artists. Reba [McEntire], Trisha [Yearwood], Wynonna [Judd], Mariah [Carey], Whitney [Houston], Bonnie Raitt."
According to Hunt, Carey's 'Always Be My Baby,' McEntire's 'Fancy' and Houston's 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody,' among others, are all included in the medley.
Hunt soared to the top of the charts with his debut single, 'Leave the Night On,' which he co-wrote with hit tunesmiths Josh Osborne and Shane McAnally. The platinum-selling single was proof to Hunt that he was heading in the right direction.
“I’m really excited that folks have connected to ‘Leave the Night On’ the way they have,” he says. “This past year has been a wild ride, and I can’t wait to see what the future has to hold.”
Hunt's Lipstick Graffiti Tour kicks off on Jan. 29 in West Hollywood, Calif. See all of his upcoming shows here.
