Hunt Nominated for Best New Artist and Best Country Album at 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards
GRAMMY-nominated country star Sam Hunt returns this Wednesday, January 6 to NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Tune in at 12:35a/11:35p CT for Hunt’s performance of his current Platinum-selling Top 5 single, “Break Up In A Small Town.” Hunt made his national television debut on Meyers’ stage back in Sept. 2014 when he performed his debut single, “Leave the Night On,” off his first major label album release, Montevallo (MCA Nashville). Since his debut, Hunt has garnered massive fan and critical acclaim, performed to tens of millions in primetime television audience, and sold out arenas worldwide.
Hunt recently earned his first ever GRAMMY nominations with nods in the all-genre Best New Artist category and in Best Country Album for his Gold-certified Montevallo. The boundary-breaking star also recently took home his first American Music Award landing the New Artist of the Year title.
Hunt’s Montevallo topped the Billboard Country Albums chart in its debut week and remains the best-selling debut album for a country artist since 2011. The album has so far produced three consecutive No. 1 Platinum-selling singles with “Leave the Night On,” “House Party” and the double Platinum “Take Your Time,” plus his current Platinum-selling “Break Up In A Small Town.” The album landed on multiple “Best of…” lists including the Associated Press, Billboard, Country Weekly, Los Angeles Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, SPIN Magazine, Village Voice and The Washington Post, and has spent 56 of the past 57 weeks in the Top 10 on the country album sales chart, with 45 of those weeks in the Top 5 and nine perched at No. 1.
