Sam Hunt Scores 6th No. 1 Single With “Kinfolks”

Sam Hunt Scores 6th No. 1 Single With “Kinfolks”

Sam Hunt scored his sixth No. 1 single as “Kinfolks” ascended to the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.

Penned by Sam with frequent collaborators Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers and Josh Osborne, “Kinfolks” is the lead single from Sam’s upcoming sophomore album, Southside (April 3).

“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’s sophomore album will follow his 2014 debut project, Montevallo, which spawned hits “Leave the Night On,” “Take Your Time,” “House Party” and more. “Kinfolks” is Sam’s first No. 1 single since his 2017 smash hit, “Body Like a Back Road.”

Sam will hit the road for his 40-plus-date Southside Summer Tour in May. Kip Moore, Travis Denning, Ernest and Brandi Cyrus will serve as support.
