Country music hit-maker Sam Hunt is back with his brand-new song, “Kinfolks,” written by the star with longtime collaborators Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers, and Josh Osborne. Listen to “Kinfolks” below!
I wanna introduce you to my kinfolks/ To my old friends/ To the house in the pines where the road ends/ Take you to my hometown, where I grew up/ Where I thought I knew it all before I knew what love was/ Gave up on it, but honey you got my hopes up/ And I’m thinkin’ that I wanna introduce you to my kinfolks
“When I think of ‘kinfolks,’ when I think of that phrase,” explained the country music star in a statement. “I think of my family, but also I think of my people back home – beyond family. It’s my buddies who’ve been a part of my story from the beginning. I’ve made a lot of new friends and met a lot of new people who are important to me since I’ve moved away, but that core group is still my core group. It’s like that old saying, ‘you can’t make old friends.’” Hunt leans on that sentiment, exemplifying the importance of bringing a new relationship into the mix and comfortability of home.
Fans have eagerly awaited new music from the record-breaking star since last year’s “Downtown’s Dead,” the follow-up to Hunt’s 6x Platinum “Body Like A Back Road,” and his GRAMMY-nominated, Triple-Platinum-selling debut album, Montevallo.
