Sam Hunt spent the last few summers opening for superstars like Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum, but this year his name will be the biggest on the marquee. The singer announced his own June-through-September headlining trek Wednesday morning.
“Buy Me A Boat” singer Chris Janson, Best New Artist Grammy nominee Maren Morris, and singer-songwriter Ryan Follese will join as openers. Tickets will go on sale Friday, Feb. 3; a full list of dates is below.
Hunt also revealed he would return to country radio next week. “Body Like A Back Road,” the first single off his anticipated second album will hit airwaves Feb.1. He teased the upbeat song on Instagram.
The only other music he has shared since his ground-shaking 2014 debut, Montevallo, came in the form of the confessional “Drinkin’ Too Much,” which appeared on Hunt’s social media with no warning as the clock struck 2017.
That song is a stark apology to his fiancee Hannah Lee Fowler, who is also the subject of many songs on Montevallo.
