World Premiere Thursday, October 10th at 4 pm CT
Multi-Platinum-selling, award-winning hitmaker Sam Hunt introduces fans to his brand-new song, “Kinfolks,” written by Hunt with longtime collaborators Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers and Josh Osborne. The world premiere “Kinfolks,” including its release on all digital and streaming platforms, takes place Thursday, October 10th at 4 pm CT with the song ficially impacting country radio on October 14th.
“When I think ‘kinfolks,’ when I think that phrase,” says Hunt, “I think my family, but also I think my people back home – beyond family. It’s my buddies who’ve been a part my story from the beginning. I’ve made a lot new friends and met a lot new people who are important to me since I’ve moved away, but that core group is still my core group. It’s like that old saying, ‘you can’t make old friends.’” Hunt leans on that sentiment, exemplifying the importance bringing a new relationship into the mix and comfortability home.
Hunt has been dropping hints for “Kinfolks” all week with images and lyrics on his socials teeing up the highly-anticipated new release. Currently in the studio finishing up the project expected in the new year, Hunt gave a taste new music to a packed Bud Light House Party event in Calgary last month, performing the reflective “Sinning With You” with an ecstatic crowd.
Fans have eagerly awaited new music from the record-breaking star since last year’s “Downtown’s Dead,” the follow-up to Hunt’s 6x platinum “Body Like A Back Road,” and his GRAMMY-nominated, triple patinum-selling debut album, Montevallo.
