Sam Hunt. What can I say about this guys music at this point? When I heard what the name of Hunt’s new single would be I didn’t even need to listen to the song before I had the review done in my head. The song does not get any better than the name would suggest. The name of the song? “Body Like a Backroad.” No, I am not kidding, this is what Sam Hunt and MCA find to be an acceptable lead single. If you can’t tell from the name of the song it’s a song about how Sammy boys girl apparently has a body that is bumpy, muddy and full of deer crap.
“The way she fit in them blue jeans,
She don’t need no belt.
But I can turn ’em inside out,
I don’t need no help.
Got hips like honey,
So thick and so sweet.
Ain’t no curves like hers on them downtown streets.”
Now if you can get past the bro “country” objectifying bullshit can you get past how much of a fraud Sam Hunt is? Everyone on planet earth that knows anything about country music knows that he is not country. It is understood that he is only pushed to country radio because he would fall off the face of the earth if he tried to make it on pop radio. So, what Sam Hunt thinks he could do is talk sing some songs with small town or backroad in it and maybe he can fool some people. This is the only “artist” that I have ever given a 0/10 to and he already has two of them in the last 2 months. Screw MCA for allowing this and screw country radio for continuing to make this fool a star.
**Since day one of the blog I have not liked the idea of giving number grades for songs/albums. I don’t think that it gets across my true opinion of the quality of the work and can lead to some confusion. I think letter grades work better for myself so from henceforth I will be giving letter grades instead of number grades.
