“Growing up, I could not tell you the difference between Nirvana and Madonna…but I knew every single Alan Jackson song that he ever put out”
Sam Hunt goes DEEP in this video.
He talks about the state of genre, his struggle to find a home for his music and how today’s Country Music fans are more inclusive and accepting than ever.
He also goes DEEP into his influences as a young man, and as it turns out, we basically had the same songs on all our burnt CDs.
While out on his 15 In A 30 Tour, at a stop in New Jersey earlier this month, Hunt told his stories…and covered Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt, Usher, R. Kelly and Kenny Chesney while sitting at the front of the stage with nothing but his guitar. Press play below!
Super cool, right?! Alan Jackson’s “Don’t Rock the Jukebox”. Travis Tritt’s “Here’s a Quarter(Call Someone Who Cares)”, Usher’s “Nice & Slow”, R. Kelly’s “Ignition” and even a version of “Come Over” all in one!
You can’t deny it, “traditional” Country or not, Sam is a super talented dude who understands his audience. This also isn’t the only time Sam has covered some of your all-time favourite songs…how ’bout a little Reba, a little Trisha and a little Cyndi Lauper for good measure in the video below!
In other Sam Hunt news….is that not an epic beard that he’s rocking these days!
Wait. I think I’ve got a man crush on Sam Hunt…
