Move over Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt is just over here breakin’ records and stuff… No Big Deal.


That’s right, Sam Hunt’s latest single Body Like a Backroad has just topped Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for a 25th straight week! Hunt’s song is the third most-downloaded song (in all genres) of 2017 and the most downloaded in country music. It was recently certified triple-platinum for three million downloads. That goes along with 261 million streams.



Florida Georgia Line has held the previous record for their hit Cruise which topped the charts for 24 weeks in 2013.


Short version: THAT’S A RECORD! 



Now Body Like a Backroad is the first single off of Sam Hunt’s highly-anticipated album… But there is no timeline for a follow up single or release date. In a recent interview Sam even said that he feels as though he has done everything he set out to do with country music and that he’s in a place in his career and life where his not willing to give music 100 percent anymore.


This could be based on the fact that he recently wed long time on and off girlfriend Hannah-Lee Fowler and wants to focus on that side of his life. But nothing has been confirmed.



Maybe breaking a record will change his mind!
