You know, I honestly feel as if I've been unfair to Sam Hunt over the past couple years. When he first emerged onto the scene in 2014, I was joining the consensus who were bashing him for not being country at all and not belonging in country music whatsoever.
Now, if you are one of those people who doesn't like Sam solely because of his lack of country merits, that's totally fine. After all, it's not as if he has many country merits to begin with. What I'm trying to get at though is that I never tried to see Sam Hunt plainly as an artist or chose to actually unpack his songs for what they are. But hey, it's the turning of a new year, and it's time to make some changes in my life. With that being said, when I heard that Sam had released a brand new song on New Year's titled "Drinkin' Too Much", I figured it would give me the chance to talk about Sam as an artist. So how did this turn out?
