Rising star Sam hunt announced the release date of his debut album, ‘Montevallo,’ earlier this summer but now fans have access to more information on the highly anticipated CD. Hunt recently released the 10 track listing for the album that is being produced by Zach Crowell and Shane McAnally. All of the tracks were co-written by Hunt, who wrote all of the songs over the past few years.
“I think musically there will be some sounds on the record that aren’t necessarily traditionally country, but lyrically, it is country and the stories and the songs are very much country. With my music and with this record, that’s what will keep me anchored in the country genre – the lyrics and the stories,” explained Hunt.
‘Leave The Night On’ was released to radio this summer and has been well received. The hit is currently in the top ten of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs list, ranked #5 on the iTunes Charts, and is moving up Billboard’s Country Airplay chart as well. To date, the single needs just 40,000 more downloads to reach Gold status. Hunt feels ‘Leave The Night On’ represents the album as a whole, and incorporates all elements of ‘Montevallo.’ The title of the CD is in reference to the small town that Hunt lived in while attending the nearby University of Alabama Birmingham.
‘Montevallo’ will be available to fans on October 27th but until then, Sam Hunt is keeping himself busy headlining his own tour, while preparing to hit the road with Charlie Worsham and Kip Moore for the CMT Tour: Up in Smoke. Hunt also has his first television appearance on September 24th when he performs ‘Leave The Night On’ on Late Night with Seth Myers.
