Sam Hunt describes the evolution his current #1 single, “Body Like a Back Road,” went through from the time the idea first took shape: “I wanted to write it because I thought it was a fun song, but I didn’t know for sure if I wanted to put it out. I didn’t want it to come across as objectifying women or be too, to lack depth and just…I tried to make it fun to offset any risks of those things happening, which made writing it fun. And, when we finally finished it, it finally hit me as ‘Ok. Wait a minute. Maybe I underestimated the potential of this song. I think this could be a fun song and it will connect with folks.’ So, at that point, I was excited to put it out and fortunately folks have enjoyed it.”
