Sam Hunt

Where: Daily’s Place

When: September 10 at 7PM

Sam Hunt marks a generational shift in country music, slipping hip-hop phrasing and modern R&B rhythms into country-pop, signaling a progression from the boisterous bro-country that had previously defined the 2010s. "Leave the Light On" introduced this blend in 2014 and it became a smash, the first of his many number one singles on the country chart. This success paled in comparison to 2017's "Body Like a Back Road," which spent months at number one and broke the record for most weeks in the top spot.
