On the heels of his new project, Locked Up, Sam Hunt scored his eleventh number one single at country radio. His infectious song, “Outskirts” is officially the number one song on the charts this week. The song follows Hunt’s previous number ones “Wishful Drinking” and “23.”

“Outskirts” is quite possibly one of the singer-songwriter’s best mid-tempo songs to date. The song is catchy and primed for radio. It is no surprise that the song finally found its way to the top fat country radio charts. On the song, Hunt shows off his talent and gives fans a song that is reminiscent of previous hits like, “Leave the Night On” and “Body Like a Back Road.”

“But soon as I get out here on the outskirts // I wish I was runnin’ by your house first // Somethin’ ’bout a summer in the South, sure // Shines like gold down these old // Round bale, river valley backroads // Way back in the holler where the grass grows // God almighty, baby, we were that close // To ditchin’ this town and settlin’ down // Out here on the outskirts”

Congratulations to Sam Hunt and his team on their eleventh number one single at country radio with “Outskirts!”
