S&T Bank Music Park
Sam Hunt marked a generational shift in country music, both in music and business. Hunt slipped hip-hop phrasing and modern R&B rhythms into country-pop, signaling a progression from the boisterous bro-country that had previously defined the 2010s. "Leave the Light On" introduced this blend in 2014 and it became a country smash, the first of five number one singles -- a streak interrupted only by "Break Up in a Small Town" peaking at number two, even though it sold better than either "House Party" or "Make You Miss Me." All this success paled in comparison to 2017's "Body Like a Back Road," which broke the record for most weeks spent at number one in 2017. Another significant thing about "Body Like a Back Road" is that it was released independent of an album, and Hunt didn't rush back into the studio to deliver one, either. This signaled how so much of his rise was fueled by a mastery of the digital marketplace, realizing when he should release EPs or lay back and let an LP do the work. As much as his music, it's this Internet savviness that marked Sam Hunt as the start of a new generation.
