- Sam Hunt tops the Country Aircheck and Billboard country charts with 'Hard to Forget.'
Sam Hunt has hit the top of both the Country Aircheck and Billboard country charts with his latest smash, “Hard to Forget.”
Written by Hunt, Luke Laird, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, Ashley Gorley, Audrey Grisham, Russ Hull, and Mary Jean Shurtz, the song features samplings of Country Music Hall of Famer Webb Pierce’s 1953 hit, “There Stands the Glass.”
“‘Hard to Forget’ is a fun song that is kind of like ‘House Party’ and even ‘Leave the Night On,’ which is the first single I put out on my first record, and then I put out a song ‘Body Like A Back Road’ and then playing these songs live they go over so well in a live setting and are so fun to play live that I started to lean into that lane more on this record. That’s where ‘Kinfolks’ comes from, that’s where ‘Hard to Forget’ comes from. But that song ‘Hard to Forget’ kind of walks this tight rope and balances all these things in one song,” said Hunt.
Southside has been named one of US Weekly’s Best Albums of 2020 so far and is Hunt’s second No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart following his 3x Platinum debut album Montevallo.
