Sam Hunt kicks off his first headlining 15 In A 30 tour tonight, Thursday, June 1st in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. Sam hand-picked the opening acts on his tour, which includes Maren Morris, Chris Janson and Ryan Follese. He tells us that each one of the three had special qualities that were important to him.
“These are people who I just was drawn to when I met them. I mean, like, they love what they do, they care about what they do, they’re passionate and talented, and there’s an integrity to them as people and their music. I don’t know them all really well yet but I was able to recognize those things pretty quickly in just the short time I’ve spent around them, and so that, to me, is what sold those guys and Maren on me, and so I think that will be the same way that I picked up on it I think folks that come out to the shows are gonna pick up on it, and I think they’re gonna realize that none of us are the type of people who are just doing this for the wrong reasons and hopefully people can appreciate that, and aside from that their music’s great. They’re really doing cool things.”
Sam recently topped the charts with “Body Like A Backroad,” the debut single from his upcoming sophomore album. No title or release date have been announced.
