If things had gone differently, we could be talking about Sam Hunt as a pro football player rather than a country star. After college, Hunt was an aspiring football player with an invitation to train with the Kansas City Chiefs, but when football didn't work out, he turned to music instead. Hunt moved to Nashville in 2008 and found success as a songwriter first, penning hits such as Kenny Chesney's "Come Over" and Keith Urban's "Cop Car." In 2014, he released his freshman album, 'Montevallo', which included the hit singles "Leave the Night On," "Take Your Time," "House Party" and "Break Up in a Small Town." In 2015, he won New Artist of the Year at the ACM Awards and headlined his own Lipstick Graffiti Tour.
