Sam Hunt’s debut single, “Leave the Night On,” has made it into the history books! It’s the highest debut – at No. 36 – for a new artist in Country Aircheck. The song is the first release from his forthcoming as-yet-untitled album.
The Georgia native explains that “Leave the Night On,” is a good representation of the rest of his album. “‘Leave the Night On’ is a song that sort of represents the album as a whole. I feel like it captures all of the elements in one song,” says Sam. “As far as a song that could represent what the whole album is about, I think that’s just a good choice.”
The song was released on iTunes (available here) and sold more than 22,000 digital downloads during its first week.
In other news, Sam will hit the road with Kip Moore on the CMT On Tour September 25th in New York, New York. In the meantime, he’s playing fairs, festivals and on select days opening for Little Big Town and Hunter Hayes.
