2014 was a whirlwind year for Sam Hunt who took country music by storm with his debut single “Leave the Night On.” He released his first major label album Montevallo and released his second single, the urban-infused slow jam, “Take Your Time.”
Although he’s been making waves for years in Nashville, writing hits for Kenny Chesney, Billy Currington and Keith Urban, we’d argue the 2015 is officially “The Year of Sam Hunt.” Just this week, he added yet another milestone to his career, making his first appearance on The Ellen Show with a performance of “Take Your Time.”
While visiting with Degeneres, Sam signed a football for the talk show host, offering a nod back to his roots playing college football. We hope a lucky fan gets a chance to win that football…and more importantly, that it’s properly inflated.
Hunt will soon criss cross the country with his headlining Lipstick Graffiti Tour with Native Run and Michael Ray. Later this year, he’ll join Lady Antebellum’s Wheels Up 2015 Tour also featuring Hunter Hayes.
