Hunt drops new song
Monday, January 2, 2017
– Sam Hunt dropped a new song, "Drink Too Much," on Sunday.
Hunt posted on his Twitter feed "Redemption. New music - Drinkin' Too Much" with a link to the new song. The track combines spoken vocals with a bit of a slow, somewhat jazzy, somewhat hip hop beat. The song describes his success, while a female fails to do the same.
The song is his first in two years with Hunt having hits off his debut, "Montevallo," including "Breakup In A Small Town" and "Make You Miss Me."

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Despite small crowd, Hood accomplishes mission
It would have been quite easy to think that Adam Hood would have mailed in this gig. It could not have been easy to make your debut in the Boston area after putting out seven albums, not to mention having songs picked by A list artists, and having maybe 25 people show up.
If the Alabama native was dissuaded by the small crowd, he did not show it.... »»»
