Feature Friday – Sam Hunt

Right now is the time for song writers in the country music world.  The people behind the top songs we’ve been hearing from big time artists are now getting their time in the spotlight.  One of my favorite writers, Sam Hunt, is on the path to being a major star.  He’s behind massive hits such as Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over”, Billy Currington’s “We Are Tonight” and Keith Urban’s “Cop Car”.        Before moving to Nashville to begin his writing career Sam played quarterback at the University of Alabama – Birmingham.  That’s right ladies not only is he gorgeous and super talented as a singer/songwriter but is a sports star too.

Back in 2013 Hunt released a free acoustic mixtape which I’ve posted below for you all to listen to.  It includes his version’s of “Cop Car” “We Are Tonight” and “Come Over”.  I know that it’s a crime to say this but I like his pipes singing “Come Over” better than Kenny’s!  Sam definitely has a hip-hop influence in his music which is rare to see on the country side of things other than in remixes of “Dirt Road Anthem” or “Cruise”.  He brings a blend to the table and almost creates a new genre with his style.  Right now his single “Leave the Night On” is climbing the charts and he’s hitting the road with Kip Moore for the CMT Tour.  I give it a year and this boy will be headlining tours of his own!

Feature Friday – Chase Rice

Happy Friday everyone!  To start off the weekend right this Feature Friday is all about Chase Rice.  If you don’t know who Chase is already you need to get acquainted.  He cowrote the record breaking single “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line and now it’s his turn in the spotlight.  He’s a Carolina boy who played football at UNC Chapel Hill and began his country career after.  He is already becoming known for his creative writing style and performance based music. It seems like the sky is the limit for Rice.  His new album “Ignite the Night”, which features his number one hit “Ready Set Roll” dropped this past week and it is fire.  From “Gonna Wanna Tonight” which is a little more sultry than the usual party anthems, to “Jack Daniels and Jesus” a cut down raw look at struggles, then back to “Do It Like This” a rockin’ song about going out in the country (which might just have to be my end of Summer anthem), this album has it all covered.  So kick back and enjoy to start off your weekend right!
