Sam Hunt Shares Album Release Date, Tour Plans


Sam Hunt announced on Wednesday that he will release his sophomore album in April and then head out on tour a month later.

Southside, the 35-year-old country singer’s first studio album since his 2014 debut Montevallo, will drop April 3. Hunt will kick off the Southside Summer Tour on May 28 in North Carolina and make only one stop in Canada – on June 18 at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage.

Hunt, 35, will be joined on the road by Kip Moore, Travis Denning and Ernest and the show will include a DJ set by Brandi Cyrus. Tickets go on sale to the general public Feb. 14 at 9 am.

Among the tracks on Southside will be the previously-released singles “Sinning With You” and “Kinfolks.”

In November, Hunt was arrested in East Nashville on suspicion of driving under the influence. He later tweeted: "I decided to drive myself home after drinking at a friend’s show in downtown Nashville," he tweeted. "It was a poor and selfish decision and I apologize to everyone who was unknowingly put at risk and let down by it. It won’t happen again.”
