Last night, Sam Hunt posted an Instagram Story showing a countdown clock. As I type this, the clock has about 9 hours and 45 minutes left on it. There’s no sound, or teaser, just the clock and four emojis:
House, mic, beer, cowboy.
Sam released “Downtown’s Dead” in 2018, but it didn’t do much on the charts. Lately, he’s been talking about how much traditional country artists have been influencing him, such as Sturgill Simpson. No telling where he will go with his new music, but the fans are buzzing.
Whether you like Sam or not, I think we can all agree there are WAY too many vanilla pop country guys trying to capitalize on his absence. They’re everywhere. And all of their music is the same. If this is indeed new music from Sam, they will all drop a notch, or five. Let the countdown begin…

Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
