Songs on the EP are:
1. Leave The Night On (Sam Hunt, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne)
2. Ex To See (Sam Hunt, Josh Osborne, Matt Ramsey)
3. House Party (Sam Hunt, Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers)
4. Breakup In A Small Town (Sam Hunt, Zach Crowell, Shane McAnally)

Hunt's songwriting credit includes Kenny Chesney's "Come Over," Keith Urban's "Cop Car" and Billy Currington's "We Are Tonight."

Hunt has shared the stage with David Nail and Little Big Town and this fall, joins Kip Moore and Charlie Worsham on CMT On Tour: Kip Moore Up In Smoke, a 21-market run kicking off in New York City Sept. 25.
