Sam Hunt, ‘Speakers’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Sam Hunt is getting his turn in the spotlight. The singer-songwriter, who has written several big hits for other artists, including Kenny Chesney's No. 1 hit, 'Come Over' and Keith Urban's 'Cop Car,' is sharing his new video for 'Speakers' with readers of The Boot.
The Georgia native just signed with MCA Nashville, and plans to release his freshman album later this year. But Hunt -- whose other credits include Billy Currington's 'We Are Tonight' and 'Real Good Feel Good' by Neal McCoy -- says he's already achieved more than he ever dreamed possible.
“I didn’t really know you could make a living in songwriting; I was just very fortunate to have the opportunity to play a few songs for a guy there named Jimmy Ritchey," he tells Kaleidoscope. "Through that meeting, I met another couple guys and ended up getting a publishing deal in Nashville.”
The former football player, who landed at the top of Taste of Country's Artists to Watch in 2014 list, has already toured with David Nail and Cassadee Pope, and plans to hit the road on his own this summer, playing plenty of festivals. See a list of all of his upcoming shows here.
