Sam Hunt is well know for his genre bending music and consistently pushes the envelope when it comes to his country, pop and R&B style. His latest single “Body Like a Back Road" became an instant hit with fans and he has recently launched a massive 2017 tour.
With such a unique style of music, it's easy to forget the Georgia native roots were formed in traditional country music with musicians such as Alan Jackson and Travis Tritt. Hunt recently reminded fans of his musical versatility when he performed a cover of Travis Tritt's classic “Great Day To Be Alive" and positively nailed it. Watch the country sensation's rendition of the classic hit in the clip below:
It's hard to imagine that Hunt has really only been on the scene for the last three years, but has already made an impact on the ever changing genre. His debut album Montebello brought hunt rapid success, which inspired five number one hits and was Grammy-nominated and introduced fans to a new kind of country artist. “Thank you for supporting us these last three years," Hunt said during a recent performance. “And most importantly, thank you, country radio and all the fans for allowing us to make the music that we feel like we're supposed to make."
The country singer is currently on his 15 in a 30 Tour, which feature opening acts Maren Morris and Chris Janson. Hunt's tour will run throughout the summer, stopping in many cities across the U.S and fans can find more details about dates and tickets here.
