With so many notable artists announcing tours, it’s important to stay up to date with the hottest shows of the summer. From country to hip-hop, and everything in between, we have you covered with ‘Galaxy’s Guide to Summer’. Each week we’re featuring tours that we think you need to check out.
First off we’re featuring country music’s new golden boy, Sam Hunt.
His debut album Montevallo spurred hits “Leave the Night On”, “House Party”, “Break Up in a Small Town”, “Make You Miss Me” and Hunt’s smash “Take Your Time”. The latter crossed over into pop and adult contemporary radio topping the country charts and peaking at number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 2015 Sam Hunt was named New Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards and Hunt took home the hardware for Breakthrough Male of the Year at the 2016 ACM Awards. Montevallo won Digital Album of the Year at the ACMs that same year.
In 2015 Sam Hunt hit the road for his headlining “Lipstick Graffiti Tour” which featured 19 stops in total. Hunt performed at House of Blues peppered across the country as well as New York’s famed, Irving Plaza. This tour would merely get his feet wet as he set out on massive treks with both Lady Antebellum (2015) and Kenny Chesney (2016).
Now with the release of his second album on the horizon and a new catchy song for the summer, “Body Like a Back Road” Hunt is set to headline his second tour, 15 in a 30 featuring Marren Morris, Chris Janson and Ryan Follese. The tour is double the size of his previous headlining effort and has him stopping at open air pavilions across the country, perfect setting for seeing country music live on a summer night!
