Sam Hunt-Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series-Central Park, NYC

Sam Hunt has been on the music scene since 2014 when he released his debut album, “Montevallo”. “Montevallo” spawned charted hits such as “Leave the Night On”, “Take Your Time” and “Make You Miss Me”. His blend of country, R & B and pop has caught the attention of other country superstars who have recorded his songs:  Keith Urban (“Cop Car”), Kenny Chesney (“Come Over”), Billy Currington (“We Are Tonight”), and most notably Reba McEntire. Hunt penned “Love Somebody”, the title track of Reba’s 27th studio album. As the show continued, the audience’s energy elevated with his delivery of a steady stream of hits. They clapped, danced and sang along to his number-one, Grammy-nominated signature hit:  “Body Like a Back Road”. They continued clapping and waiving as he sang “House Party” and “Women in My Life”, a reverent homage to the important women in his life who have made him who he is. Finally, he sang his new release, “Outskirts”, the title of his “2023 Summer on the Outskirts Tour,” a  total of 27 dates across the U.S. and Canada.
