You never really know what Sam Hunt is up to and the mystery around him probably adds to his mystique. A year ago, just as he was basking in the success of “Body Like A Back Road” he said he wasn’t going to be all in on his music career going forward “I don’t want to come off as I don’t — you know, I’m not excited about making music or I’m not very hopeful to have new music for the fans … but, you know, I’m in a place in my career and in my life where I’m not willing to give music 100% of me anymore.” Then his plan to start a music blew up before it really even started. Just when I was beginning to wonder what was coming next, he dropped this on us through Instagram yesterday
I’ve had it on repeat all day since it came out, what do you think?
“Downtown’s dead without you
Girls walk by and friends say hi
Then Friday night it might as well be just another
Tuesday night without you
As long as you’re still in my head
There ain’t a way that I can paint a ghost town red
Downtown’s dead, downtown’s dead”
