2019 might just be the year of Sam Hunt. In a recent interview, the hitmaker shared that he’s working away on the follow-up to his wildly-successful debut Montevallo.

Ahead of his performance at the 2019 Stagecoach Festival in California, Hunt sat down to chat with SiriusXM The Highway’s Storme Warren and Buzz Brainard about his return to the studio. In fact, the Georgia native said the record will be completed “come hell or high water.”

“I’ll start recording the best of the last 10, 11, 12 months … in July and August, and I should have a record there,” Hunt shared. “The songs are showing up. I would like to have two or three more between now and July, but for the most part, the record’s there. It’s just a matter of recording it.”

To concentrate fully on new music, Hunt decided to keep his tour schedule light, playing only three shows during the year. In addition to his stop at Stagecoach, Hunt will perform at Off the Rails in Texas on May 5 and Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colo., on June 14.

Since releasing Montevallo in 2014, Hunt has debuted several one-off singles, including “Downtown’s Dead,” “Drinkin’ Too Much,” and one of the biggest songs of 2017, “Body Like A Back Road.”
No word yet on when Hunt will release any new music.
