Sam Hunt just dropped his new single “Body Like a Back Road.” Sam describes it as a “light-hearted song,” which was a reaction to the other tunes he was writing for his new record, noting that the album was going in a “heavy direction.” He adds, “I sat down at one point and I was like okay, ‘I’m gonna lighten this up a little bit. This needs a light flare.’”

Sam will be one of many artists taking part in Super Bowl weekend. He’s set to perform at the traveling nightclub, Club Nomadic, in Houston.
