Sam Hunt has a brand new single at country radio this week called “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s.”

Sam said of the new song from his Southside album, “’Breaking Up Was Easy in the ‘90s,’ that’s a song that kind of speaks to the times a little bit. My favorite line from that song is ‘Modern love leads to modern hearts breaking. I’m just a product of my generation.’”

He added, “Just a fun, kind of simple reflection on how much more difficult it is to be so connected, the downside of being so connected, nowadays. Yeah, that was one that was written in the ninth hour and turned out pretty cool, I thought, and we put it on the record.”

Sam is nominated for two CMT Music Awards — Male Video of the Year for “Hard to Forget” and CMT Performance of the Year for his cover of Reba McEntire’s iconic hit, “Fancy,” at the 2019 CMT Artists of the Year ceremony.

The 2020 CMT Music Awards will air October 21st beginning at 8pm ET/7pm CT.
