Sam Hunt Shares New Single, ‘Body Like a Back Road’ [LISTEN]

The wait is over: Sam Hunt‘s brand-new single, “Body Like a Back Road” is out now.

Written by Hunt, Zach Crowell (who also produced the track), Josh Osborne and Shane McAnally following Hunt’s recent engagement to girlfriend Hannah Lee Fowler, “Body Like a Back Road” is a short, laid-back song with lyrics to match.

“We’re out here in the boondocks / With the breeze and the birds / Tangled up in the tall grass / With my lips on hers,” Hunt sings near the end of “Body Like a Back Road.” “On a highway to Heaven / Headed south of her smile / Get there when we get there / Every inch is a mile.

“Body Like a Back Road,” Hunt says, helped “lighten up” what was shaping up to be a “heavy” sophomore album.

“I’ve been writing songs over the past, I guess, year and a half, trying to conceptualize a new record, and it kinda started taking a heavy direction, and I sat down at one point and was like, ‘Okay, I’m gonna lighten this up a little bit, it needs a lighter flair,’” Hunt recalls. “[“Body Like a Back Road”] sort of swings, and hopefully it’s easy to listen to and will put a smile on some folks’ faces.”

Hunt released his debut album, Montevallo, in 2014. On Jan. 1, just after midnight, he dropped an unreleased tune, “Drinkin’ Too Much,” that shares his feelings about his on-again-off-again relationship with Fowler, and how his fame has affected her.

“As I write these songs, I don’t want to sit on them for as long as it takes me to finish a record before I put them out,” Hunt notes, “so I’m just going to try to put them out as I write them and finish them. As quick as I can get them done, I’ll be shooting them out.”

“Body Like a Back Road” is available for download on iTunes. Hunt will headline the 2017 Taste of Country Music Festival in June. He also has plans for a full summertime tour, the 2017 15 in a 30 Tour.
