Sam Hunt shared with us how he came up with the title for his Southside album which will be released on April 3.

He told us, “The album title came after all the songs were finished. I sat down and made a list of potential titles and just off the top of my head, I just sort of started writing down words or phrases that felt like the songs or felt like the record. ‘Southside’ was the one that just kept standing out. I didn’t put a whole lot of thought into why that was the case. ‘Southside’ just for me is a phrase that just feels like my rural and urban roots, you know, where I’m from, I kind of feel like I’m from the Southside of that place, and obviously, the word south is in the title so there’s association with being from the South.”

He added, “More than having a really good backstory for the title, it just felt – when I looked at it on the page – it felt like the record.”
