THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM: THAT'S JUST US ON YOUR BOOTS

With his #1 Country hit "Body Like a Back Road" not only selling and streaming hugely but hitting the Top 20 at Pop radio, MCA Nashville’s Sam Hunt has proved that his monster debut album Montevallo was just the beginning. Hunt is the very model of a modern Nashville star, though appearing on the cover of our backwater publication might have him pining for a detour.

UMG Nashville chief Mike Dungan has, to paraphrase his hit artist Sam Hunt, a body of work like a superhighway. With Hunt crossing bigtime and Universal acts like Chris Stapleton, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum working like gangbusters, the affable exec is burning up the road. Though a Contents shout-out from us could give his truck a flat tire.
