2016

I have always enjoyed Sam Hunt’s music. It is mainly country, but there are often pop or hip hop elements woven into the music.

Hunt released his second full length album, Southside, in April 2020 and the first song on the album has completely made my heart soft and warm.

2016 is the first song on the Southside album and the most beautiful song on there as well. Not only is it lyrically beautiful, but it really showcases Hunt’s vocal capability. It may make you cry. It may make you sentimental. Either way, it is one of those songs that will make you feel something!

 

Leave the Night On

In honour of Sam Hunt performing in Toronto last night (and me living vicariously through my friends) I have decided to post another one of my favourite Sam Hunt songs, Leave the Night On. Leave the Night On is a fun and upbeat song about having a good old fun time.  There is also the element of young love in there as well. There is really nothing much else to it. It is fun and catchy; you’re sure to stay dancing.

 

Take Your Time

Take Your Time is a kind of love song by Sam Hunt. This song is about a guy who wants to introduce himself to a girl that he is instantly smitten with but nervous to approach. There is also discussion of a male falling into the traditional stereotypes of a guy approaching a girl at the bar. The lyrics of this song are basically going through the typical assumptions one makes when a guy approaches a girl at the bar, and attempting to shatter them by the lyrics promoting different, more positive, intentions.

While that is how I interpreted the song, the video is a little different. It shows guy who is smitten with a girl that he has seen but does not really know. He realizes that she is unhappy and for some reason he feels drawn to her.

I really liked this song and the meaning behind it. Another great one by Sam Hunt!

House Party

You’re all invited to Sam Hunt’s House Party… metaphorically of course. This song is so fun and bubbly and actually makes me feel like inviting my friends over for a fun time or going on summer drives with them. Its such a fun summer song. What I especially like about this song is that it is the first party song in a long time that has nothing to do with having fun under the influence of anything. It talks about having simple fun with your friends, that’s all.

I think that I am currently in a Sam Hunt phase as I have been just looking for all of his songs and falling in love with each one I hear so look forward to more recommendations from this artist. I still haven’t figured out if I am going to categorize him as a Pop or Country artist yet, let me know what you think!
