SLIDESHOW

I usually have to hear a song...
a couple of times before I connect with it, but it was love at first listen with Sam Hunt's "Take Your Time." For those who still haven't discovered him, Hunt is a tender, rugged, laid-back storyteller—a little bit R&B, a little bit pop, and a whole lot country. If you haven't heard Montevallo, his debut album, prepare to be knocked out.
