Sam Hunt Drops Friendly New Single, “Kinfolks” [Listen]

Sam Hunt dropped his first new single in more than a year with the release of “Kinfolks” on Oct. 10.

Penned by Sam with frequent collaborators Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers and Josh Osborne, “Kinfolks” will impact country radio on Oct. 14.

“When I think of ‘kinfolks,’ when I think of that phrase, I think of my family, but also I think of my people back home—beyond family,” says Sam. “It’s my buddies who’ve been a part of my story from the beginning. I’ve made a lot of new friends and met a lot of new people who are important to me since I’ve moved away, but that core group is still my core group. It’s like that old saying, ‘you can’t make old friends.’”

Sam is currently in the studio finishing up his sophomore album, which is expected to be released in 2020.
