Sam Hunt Doesn’t Like Writing Songs About People He’s ‘Directly Involved With’
“When I write songs, I’m really intimidated to write songs about people I’m really directly involved with. My songs tend to be an amalgamation of a lot of different experiences,” he told PEOPLE at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Saturday. “You know, you pick up things from movies and culture, so I just sort of soak all that in. And it comes out in a song, but rarely is a song directly about somebody who’s in my life at that moment.” He will, though, get inspired by people in general. “My songs come through sort of this osmosis that comes from being around people who are going through things,” he said. His newest single, “23,” isn’t necessarily about anyone, but it’s a nostalgic song, a topic Hunt is very familiar with. “I’m always nostalgic. I’m always thinking about the past,” he shared. “I love that happy, sad feeling in music. I’m really attracted to. It comes out when I’m writing quite a bit.” Read the full story HERE.
