Multi-Platinum-selling country pop superstar Sam Hunt has today released his brand new single ’23 ‘. Written by Hunt with Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Chris LaCorte (who also produced the track), ’23’ has the singer thinking back warmly on a past relationship. Using an early photo of his wife, Hannah’s, aunt and uncle when they were a young couple for his song art, Hunt further illustrates the nostalgia and fondness of days gone by. Despite moving on with new cities, jobs and life, the story goes on.
At a recent session at Ocean Way studio in Nashville, Hunt and his band performed a scaled back version of the new song. Fans can watch the performance of ’23’

The album also featured mega hit ‘Body Like A Backroad’ which peaked at #9 on the ARIA Singles Chart and has since gone 7x Platinum. ‘SOUTHSIDE’ was released to critical acclaim with the album and various tracks landing on multiple “Best of” lists for 2020 including The New York TimesBest Albums and NPR’s Best Songs (“Hard To Forget”). The album earned additional praise from American Songwriter, Associated Press, Billboard¸ Entertainment Weekly, NPR, Pitchfork, Slate, The Ringer and more.
