SAM HUNT TO RECIEVE NEW HONOUR - SONG OF THE YEAR

CMT’s Artists of the Year event is next month and this year they’ve created a new award, Song of the Year.

Of course, the first recipient of this award will be Sam Hunt for “Body Like a Back Road.” The song has broken records by being the first song in history by a solo artist to hold the No. 1 spot for 31 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

It has also been the most streamed and downloaded country song of the year, racking up more than 325 million streams and 1.6 million downloads.

Recent music testing here at Ottawa’s New Country 94 shows that out of over 500 songs, our listeners choose “Body Like a Back Road” as their most loved.
