Sam Hunt is in a season of new beginnings.
Weeks after the birth of his baby daughter, Hunt releases his new single, “Water Under the Bridge”. Hunt co-wrote “Water Under the Bridge” with Chris LaCorte, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. The rolling, up-tempo track is a nostalgic look back at the youthful day of youth.
The lyrics include: ‘The muddy river, the rolled’. We did not care where it went. We got it done, we did not know. We were young, stupid and so full of it. Broken bottles and graffiti, beer and girls and poppin wheels. Love was fun and life was easy. Now it’s just water under the bridge. “
“Water Under the Bridge” is the follow-up to Hunt’s latest hit list “23”, which he also wrote with LaCorte, McAnally and Osborne. “23” is Hunt’s eighth No. 1 hit and is included on his album “Southside”, which is also home to No. 1 songs “Breaking Up Was Easy in the ’90’s,” “Kinfolks,” and “Hard To Forget.

2022 has so far been an unforgettable year for Hunt.
Earlier this month, he told the audience at the Ryman Auditorium that he had recently gotten “a little girl named Lucy Lou.”
“I think being out here and in the music business and being out on the road has kind of hardened my heart,” Hunt said. “My heart is definitely much harder in many ways since I left the small town. It’s amazing how the little girl melted it all away overnight a few weeks ago. I have been filled with a lot of gratitude the last few weeks. I just want to say up here on the Ryman stage, how grateful I am to have been a part of country music for the last 10 years. ”
Hunt and his wife have endured a tumultuous year before the birth of the child. Fowler filed for divorce twice – citing inappropriate marital behavior and infidelity – earlier this year. The archive is how the news of baby Lucy’s impending arrival was discovered. The couple were eventually reconciled, and Fowler asked the court to reject her divorce application again.
Hunt opened up about the baby to Country Countdown USA before her arrival and explained that he took some time off to be with her and that he and his wife wanted to meet their little girl before she named her.
“I have not talked about this, but I have a little girl on the way,” Hunt said. “I have a baby on the way in about eight weeks. I blocked two months in late May and early June. Really, this year revolves around the big news of my life.”
He said he also collects advice from his famous friends who have had children, including Russell Dickerson, whose son was born in 2020.
“I saw Russell Dickerson a few weeks ago; we talked about fatherhood. I was trying to choose his brain, ”Hunt said. “Over the last four or five years, I’ve had a lot of friends who have had their first children. So I feel like I’m ready for it.”
A new baby and single will not be the only new addition to Hunt’s life this year – he also expects a new album.
“I was able to write some songs in 2020,” he explained. ‘I’ve recorded three or four songs. I imagine I’ll be releasing some songs over the summer and hopefully have the album finished later this year. “
