Sam Hunt — American country singer
Sam Lowry Hunt was born on 8 December 1984 in Cedartown, Georgia. In high school, he played football and was thinking about a sports career. However, it didn’t work out and in 2008, the young man decided to devote his life to music and moved to Nashville.
In May 2012, the musician wrote a successful single "Come Over", which he worked on with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. The song was released by Kenny Chesney. It topped Hot Country Songs and reached the 23rd spot on Billboard Hot 100 as well as the 48th position on Canadian Hot 100. By November, the single earned a platinum status from RIAA.
In October 2013, Sam released his first and only one to date acoustic mixtape, Between the Pines. The song was available for free downloading on his website. The 15-song album was later released on a CD and sold over 38,000 copies in the United States. The same year Hunt together with Marc Beeson and Josh Osborne wrote a song for a popular country singer Billy Currington. The song topped Country Airplay and reached the 60th spot on Billboard Hot 100.
