OMG, you guys, Sam Hunt’s performance at the 2015 CMA Awards was EVERYTHING. The country music rookie totally owned the stage when he sang ‘Take Your Time’ at the show, and if possible, we love him even more now. Swoon!
Sam Hunt was one of the year’s biggest country music breakout stars — and he proved why with his amazing performance at the CMA Awards on Nov. 4. The hunky singer looked hot and sounded great while singing his No. 1 single “Take Your Time,” and we were totally loving it.
Sam looked totally hot as ever in his black pants and black button down shirt, and even though this song blew up months ago, we’re still not sick of it. Plus, it’s what really put Sam on the map and got him two nominations at the show! The country up-and-comer was such a big hit at the show that hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood even joked about him in the opening monologue, with Brad poking fun at how the singer talks and sings sporadically in “Take Your Time.” He even coined the music style as “Sam Hunting,” and Sam did it perfectly when he took the stage tonight!
The last year has been HUGE for Sam, who spent his career as a successful songwriter before breaking out with an album release of his own in Oct. 2014. His first three singles, “Leave The Night On,” “Take Your Time,” and “House Party,” all shot to No. 1 on the Country Billboard charts, while “Break Up In A Small Town” is currently on track to do the same.
And things won’t be slowing down anytime soon! Next year, he’s going to join Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert on what’s sure to be one of the biggest tours of the summer, and we can only expect that he’ll also be working on some new tunes before that starts up.
As for the CMAs, it’s a big night all-around for the 30-year-old. Besides his performance, Sam’s also up for some awards: Single of the Year and Song of the Year for “Take Your Time,” along with New Artist of the Year. Not too shabby, huh!?
