Sam Hunt Plays Free Show
Sam Hunt drew a crowd of more than 10,000 people when he hosted a free street party in downtown Nashville on Wednesday, October 28th. The singer was celebrating an incredible year since the release of his critically-acclaimed debut album Montevallo.
Sam performed his hits including his three consecutive Number One Platinum-selling singles “Leave the Night On,” “House Party,” the Double-Platinum “Take Your Time,” his current Top 25 and climbing Gold-selling single, “Break Up In A Small Town,” songwriting hits “We Are Tonight” and “Cop Car,” and many more, filling the nearly two-hour performance. The show also included a duet of “Burning House” with his good friend and rising country star Cam.
Sam also took a moment to introduce one of his earliest believers to the crowd, Katelyn Carter. Katelyn took it upon herself to distribute copies to anyone who requested Sam’s early work – his give-away mixtape, Between The Pines. That project became the blueprint for Sam’s major label debut album, Montevallo, and in recognition of its significance, he reissued the 15-track acoustic mixtape earlier this week.
Sam is nominated for three CMA awards (New Artist of the Year; Single of the Year; Song of the Year) and three American Music awards (New Artist of the Year; Favorite Male Artist – Country; Favorite Album – Country). Fans can see Sam perform on next week’s CMA Awards, airing live on ABC on Wednesday, November 4th.
