Sam Hunt Southside album

Nashville star Sam Hunt continues his victory lap, as his sophomore album Southside reaches No.1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart, becoming the highest country album debut of 2020 with sales tallying over 45,900.

Following the album’s release on 3 April via MCA Nashville, Southside marks Hunt’s second consecutive debut at No.1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and second consecutive Top 5 debut on Billboard’s Top 200.

Along with racing up the charts, Southside is also a critical hit, with The New York Times calling it, “a reminder that Hunt is a Nashville provocateur who can write better songs than almost everyone he’s trying to provoke,” while Rolling Stone pegs Hunt as “an innovator who has remade country in his own image and also figured out how to reclaim its past”.

Hunt also shared stories behind the making of the album as part of the enhanced Southside album playlist on Spotify.
