Will Sam Hunt & Luke Bryan Write Together On The Road?

June 14, 2018

According to Taste Of Country, Luke Bryan launched his What Makes You Country Tour stadium tour (which will be at Target Field on July 21) and Luke invited special guest Sam Hunt to join. That means two of country's hottest superstars are spending more time together ... and maybe writing songs?

Eh, not likely.

While Hunt couldn't say enough good things about his tourmate and fellow Georgian (that's the right term right?) during a chat  — "I like Luke a lot, he's genuine," he assures — Hunt admits that songwriting on the road really isn’t really his cup of tea, no matter who he's touring with.

"I've never been against writing with other artists," Sam Hunt says. But ... "When I'm on the road, it's hard to switch over and get in that headspace. I'm fairly easily distracted."

"I kind of put on two different hats in this industry. When I'm doing the artist thing, I'm not really thinking about songwriting, but when I come home and get in the studio, I completely switch gears," Hunt explains. "I'm like a chameleon. I completely change to a different state of mind and don't really even imagine myself as an artist anymore — it's a lot easier for me to focus."

Even when Sam is back in Nashville city limits, Hunt describes himself as a creature of habit when it comes to songwriting, insisting: "I guess I'm a little more comfortable with the familiarity of the environment of the writers that I've written with in the past."
