Country star Sam Hunt‘s new single “Body Like a Back Road” impacted country radio today, February 1st. The song was co-written by the country star along with Zach Crowell, Josh Osborne, and Shane McAnally after Hunt popped the question to bride-to-be Hannah Lee Fowler while on vacation in Israel.
“I’ve been writing songs over the past, I guess, year and a half, trying to conceptualize a new record, and it kinda started taking a heavy direction, and I sat down at one point and was like, ‘Okay, I’m gonna lighten this up a little bit, it needs a lighter flair,’” Hunt told The Boot of his follow-up to Montevallo. “[“Body Like a Back Road”] sort of swings, and hopefully it’s easy to listen to and will put a smile on some folks’ faces.”
Enjoy the song with a smooth vibe below!
“Body like a back road / Driving with my eyes closed / I know every curve like the back of my hand / Do 15 in a 30 / I ain’t in no hurry / I’m gonna take it slow just as fast as I can,” the Georgia native croons.
The song’s sexy lyrics also provided the inspiration for the name of Hunt’s upcoming 15 in a 30 Tour with Maren Morris, Chris Janson, and newcomer Ryan Follese. And yes, like Montevallo, Hannah once again serves as Sam’s creative muse.
Also today, Hunt just debuted his brand new “Drinkin’ Too Much” lyric video. Watch it here.
