Downtown’s Dead? What do you suppose Sam Hunt means ?
Well, his interests have certainly changed…….On today’s #HotCountrySkinny @SamHunt opens up about how his priorities have changed…….
He’s releasing his first new single in more than a year, and in a new interview, he admits he’s simply not as single-minded about his music career as he once was.
Hunt, 33, is set to release “Downtown’s Dead” on Wednesday (May 16). It’s his first single since he released “Body Like a Back Road” in February 2017, and the singer-songwriter says that since he released his debut album, Montevallo, in 2014, much has changed about his life.
“I’ve grown up a little bit since my first record, and I feel my first record was inspired by an era of my life that really left with something to say and something to sing about,” Hunt tells Yahoo!. “And at this point … I’ve gotten into some other things outside of music that I really enjoy. Just other interests of mine that have nothing to do with music.”
Many of the songs on Montevallo were inspired by Hunt’s on-again, off-again relationship with his longtime love, Hannah Lee Fowler. The couple reconciled after the album was released, and married in April 2017.
