Sam Hunt, "Start Nowhere"
This gorgeous country ballad about "choosing home" and the values thereof, in the words of the MCA Nashville star, was co-penned by Hunt, Zach Crowell, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. The accompanying video, meanwhile, is a moving compilation of Hunt family home movies, depicting a childhood of pastoral beauty in Cedartown, Ga.
