Sam Hunt's Unexpected Connection to Luke Bryan

February 23, 2018


Sam Hunt will hit the road later this year, opening for Luke Bryan for the stadium dates on the "What Makes You Country Tour," including Saturday, July 28th at Dodgers Stadium. But he's not the first member of his family to have worked with the country superstar.

“I discovered Luke’s music several years ago when I was in college," the "Body Like a Back Road" singer revealed in a statement from his label. "I came home one weekend and walked in the house, and everybody was gathered around the TV.

"My mom said, ‘Hey, come over here, come over here! Your brother’s in a country music video.’ And it was an artist named Luke Bryan. He had a song called ‘All My Friends Say,’ and they recorded this video at my brother’s fraternity house. We were all wound up and excited, because we got to see 2.5 seconds of the back of my brother’s head in this Luke Bryan video.

“So, needless to say, myself and all the folks back home are excited about this tour.”
