It’s a good thing for country music that he decided to become a musician. Now he is about to go on his “15 in a 30 Tour.” Book your Sam Hunt Clarkston tickets and watch him play music at the DTE Energy Music Theatre live.
From football to country music, Sam Hunt has taken a somewhat unconventional path to stardom. He is now about to go on “15 in a 30 Tour” and this is your chance to see him perform live at an arena near you.
The journey to music
Sam Hunt always wanted to be a football player. He played as the QB for the Middle Tennessee State University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He developed a habit of playing the guitar after practice sessions and then bought one for himself. He even began to play small gigs. Then in 2007, the Kansas City Chiefs invited him for a trial. He did not make it to the team and decided to quit the sport and take up music.
Sam Hunt: The musician
Sam Hunt made the move to Nashville in 2008 and began his career as a songwriter. He co-wrote “Come Over,” the ASCAP Award winning hit by Kenny Chesney. He also wrote tracks for Billy Currington and Keith Urban.
After releasing his first track, independently, “Raised On It,” he soon signed a record deal with MCA Nashville. Sam then released “Montevallo,” his debut album in 2014. It became a huge hit. Four tracks from the album reached the first spot on the Country Airplay chart, making him the first male artist to achieve the feat with a debut album.
Montevallo went two times platinum and won Sam plenty of awards including an American Music Award and a CMT Music Award. He also earned two Grammy nominations. Now he is about to go on tour. Grab your Sam Hunt Clarkston tickets and watch him hit the stage live.
