Sam Hunt freely admits that his music has been "influenced by pop culture." But he says his future stuff will lean a little more on his country roots in his recent interview with Taste of Country.
"So far, my music has been influenced by pop culture. And I've used my pop culture foresight to create a sound that I thought would be effective in today's times. I think as I continue to write songs, I may lean on country roots I think a little more than where the culture is going, musically. So I don't know how that will work out, ultimately, but I think it will be fun for me to kind of create a more pure version of the music that's been influenced by my country background."
I'm excited to hear his new stuff. Hopefully it comes out sooner than later.
