Sam Hunt never fails to keep his fans on their toes; whether he goes silent for a bit, with everyone wondering when they’ll hear from him next, or just sliding out with a recording like this, he keeps all of us guessing.
In his latest Instagram post, Hunt shares a recorded cover of Garth Brooks’ 1991 hit, “What She’s Doing Now”. Making Brooks’ original version almost completely unrecognizable, this cover ventures into the smooth country-pop/R&B style that everyone has come to expect from Hunt’s unique style. Carrying a much stronger electronic sound, fans might forget that this was originally a country song with traditional production.
Hunt has continued to push the boundaries of the country genre as seen in his most recent album, Southside. So the question is, will the singer-songwriter release more like this or will he make a return to his original blends? For a bigger twist, Brooks could join him on the official track. Regardless of the direction, Hunt really shows that music is music, and shows a no holds barred to pushing the genre into his own unique form of country music.
