Country music phenom Sam Hunt’s flirty smash hit “Body Like A Back Road” rose to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart over six months ago, where it has remained for an astonishing 25 consecutive weeks—- breaking the record for most weeks atop the nearly 59-year-old chart.
The three-week country radio No. 1 hit written by Hunt, Zach Crowell, Shane McAnally, and Josh Osborne also consistently landed in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for 16 straight weeks, longer than all other songs in the chart’s 25-year history.
The song is currently the No. 1 most streamed country song, the No. 1 most downloaded country song, and the No. 3 most downloaded all-genre song of 2017 and it is now RIAA-certified Triple Platinum.
“Body Like A Back Road” comes as fans eagerly await Hunt’s forthcoming sophomore album, the follow-up to the singer/songwriter’s Grammy-nominated, Triple Platinum-selling debut album, Montevallo, featuring a record-breaking four No. 1 singles and five Platinum and Multi-Platinum-selling hits including “Leave the Night On,” “House Party,” “Take Your Time,” “Break Up In A Small Town” and “Make You Miss Me.”
When will the Georgia native drop his next album? Time will tell, he’s not in any mad rush and is working to find balance between his personal and professional life.
“I don’t want to come off as I don’t — you know, [that] I’m not excited about making music or I’m not very hopeful to have new music for the fans who are anxiously awaiting new music, but, you know, I’m in a place in my career and in my life where I’m not willing to give music 100 percent of me anymore,” Hunt confessed to The Boot. “I did that for four years, and it was fruitful as far as my career goes, but everything else in my life had to be put on hold, and I’m just not willing to do that for years and years at a time.”
Hunt is currently on his 15 In A 30 Tour with special guests Maren Morris, Chris Janson, and Ryan Follese. Upcoming dates include San Diego, San Jose, Sacramento and two nights in Los Angeles. Check out his full tour schedule here and take a quick look at his plans for August 2017 below!
