WATCH: Sam Hunt Shares Lyric Video For ‘Body Like A Back Road’
Georgia native Sam Hunt has released the lyric video for his latest single, “Body Like A Back Road”, and it’s a retro treat. The 32-year-old singer wrote the song to “lighten up” what was becoming a rather dark follow up to 2014’s Montevallo.
The video features vintage footage of a minibike race. The song was written by Hunt along with producer Zach Crowell, Josh Osborne and Shane McAnally.
“I’ve been writing songs over the past, I guess, year and a half, trying to conceptualize a new record, and it kinda started taking a heavy direction, and I sat down at one point and was like, ‘Okay, I’m gonna lighten this up a little bit, it needs a lighter flair,’” Hunt tells The Boot. “[“Body Like a Back Road”] sort of swings, and hopefully it’s easy to listen to and will put a smile on some folks’ faces.”
It was recently announced that Hunt would join Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Faith Hill to perform at the American Country Music Awards, which will take place on April 2. He will also embark on a summertime tour, with dates yet to be announced.
