Sam Hunt Performs ‘Leave the Night On’ at 2015 iHeartRadio Country Festival [WATCH]
With No. 1 hits, a definite stage presence and adoring fans, country singer Sam Hunt is making a name for himself, and he proved it at the 2015 iHeartRadio Country Festival with a high-energy performance of "Leave the Night On."
Wearing a white T-shirt, button-down shirt and his always-present ballcap, Hunt started off the song by jumping up and down, getting the energy up at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. He then jumped off stage, sweetly approaching a female fan and spinning her around and treating the crowd to some up-close-and-personal time, before returning to the stage and sprinting down to the other side.
Though he's relatively new to country music, Hunt knows how to cover a lot of ground in one song, making his "Leave the Night On" performance an exciting three-and-a-half minutes for both him and the fans. Hunt gave everything he had and was dripping with sweat by the end, when took of his hat to reveal his sleek and sweat-soaked hair. (One lucky fan got to take home said hat, which Hunt tossed into the crowd with a grin before disappearing offstage.)
Hunt's current single "House Party" is his fourth release from Montevallo. He's sharing that song and many more with fans while on Lady Antebellum's Wheels Up 2015 Tour; he and Hunter Hayes are serving as Lady A's opening acts during the trek, which runs through September.
Hunt joined Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and many more country stars as a performer during the 2015 iHeartRadio Country Festival, which took place on May 2 and was broadcast on Wednesday night (May 27) on NBC.
