ABC/Mark LevineThis summer, Sam Hunt will join Luke Bryan for the stadium dates on his What Makes You Country Tour. Already this year, Sam traveled to the Caribbean to play Luke’s annual Crash My Playa getaway vacation.
But there’s another member of Sam’s family who goes back even further with the four-time Entertainer of the Year.
“I discovered Luke’s music several years ago when I was in college,” Sam explains. “I came home one weekend and walked in the house, and everybody was gathered around the TV. My mom said, ‘Hey, come over here, come over here! Your brother’s in a country music video.’ And it was an artist named Luke Bryan. He had a song called ‘All My Friends Say’ and they recorded this video at my brother’s fraternity house.”
“All My Friends Say” was Luke’s debut single, back in 2007.
“We were all wound up and excited, because we got to see 2.5 seconds of the back of my brother’s head in this Luke Bryan video,” Sam continues. “So, needless to say, myself and all the folks back home are excited about this tour.”
Hunt’s road trip with Bryan on the 13-city What Makes You Country Tour: Stadium Sized trek kicks off May 31 in Toronto. Prior to that, the “Body Like a Back Road” hitmaker will headline both nights of his inaugural The Nashional Music Festival April 20 and 21 in Music City.
