Sam Hunt on Distinctive Singing Style: “I’m Kind of at the Mercy of My Abilities”

Buoyed by Top 5 lead single, “Kinfolks,” Sam Hunt will be dropping his sophomore album, Southside, on April 3.

Sam’s upcoming album will follow his 2014 debut project, Montevallo, which spawned hits “Leave the Night On,” “Take Your Time,” “House Party” and more. Southside’s lead single, “Kinfolks,” is currently No. 2 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

While Sam’s distinctive style has resonated with his passionate fanbase, the Georgia native humbly tells Kix Brook of American Country Countdown that he’s at the “mercy of my abilities.”

However, it’s those “abilities” that have helped Sam garner a cache of No. 1 hits, multiple Grammy and CMA nominations, as well as win the ACM Gene Weed Milestone Award, which is presented to a country music artist for outstanding achievement.

“Yeah, I’m kind of at the mercy of my abilities or maybe the . . . styles that have influenced me,” says Sam. “Wherever that comes from, I can’t really pinpoint, but for whatever reason, it comes out a little different than everybody else, and I can’t mimic other people. I can’t do what they do. I’m just glad that what I do resonates with folks out there.”

For more on Sam’s distinctive style, check out his newly released song, “Hard to Forget,” which will be featured on Southside.
