Sam Hunt: Hannah ‘Keeps Me Honest’ When Making Music

When it comes to working on music in quarantine, Sam Hunt told People recently he wants the stamp of approval from his better half, Hannah, before anyone else.

“I run everything by her and make sure to get her sign-off,” Hunt said. “I’m not sure that I’m honest to the point that I need to run it by anybody other than my wife. She’s really big on authenticity, so sometimes I can get a little too big for my britches and write songs that are outside of my character. Not only my literal character, but even the character I might be able to pull off in a song. She cares to keep me honest when it comes to that as well, even when she’s not involved in the song.”

The multi-platinum country star added the pair’s relationship has grown since the beginning of the pandemic.

“We’ve grown a lot, and we’ve had a lot of great conversations because there’s nothing else to do but talk,” Hunt said. “We’ve worked a lot of things out that we’ve brushed under the rug, so that’s been great.”

The “Hard to Forget” singer recently took part in the Red Rocks Unpaused virtual music festival, his most notable activity since the cancellation of his Southside Tour.
