COUNTRY artist Sam Hunt announced he and his wife Hannah LeeFowler celebrated the birth of their first child.
Hunt broke the exciting news to fans while performing at his concert in Nashville, Tennessee on June 7, 2022.
Who is Sam Hunt?
Sam Hunt, 37, is from Cedartown, Georgia and is the eldest of three children.
He played football at his local high school, where he was named Co-Offensive Player of the Year in 2002 and selected to the Georgia Sportswriters Association All-State Class AAA first team.
Hunt was also nominated for a Wendy’s High School Heisman, and while attending Tennessee State University in 2003 and 2004, Hunt played as the school’s quarterback.
He continued playing after transferring to the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Hunt graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics with a major in philosophy.
While in college, Hunt taught himself to play guitar, practiced every day, and performed at local bars.
“I never saw myself as a musician or a musician,” he told Rolling Stone in 2015.
“I was just killing time this summer and a mate recently bought a guitar. One day I picked it up and on a whim I was like, ‘You know, I think I want to buy a guitar.’”
But it wasn’t until he performed a few of his songs for his college roommates that they encouraged him to perform at local bars.
What is his net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Hunt has an estimated net worth of around $3 million.
Before releasing his solo work, Hunt helped write Kenny Chesney’s 2012 hit, Come Over, and in September 2013 he released his first song, Raised on It.
However, Hunt was not getting noticed because his music and the record companies were taking too long to promote him, so he made the decision to take it upon himself.
He worked with local hip hop escapee Zach Crowell, who suggested releasing a mixtape to garner media attention.
Crowell told the outlet, “Coming from the hip-hop world where mixtapes are a common thing, I was just like, ‘Hey, let’s do this!'”
Money was an issue for Hunt, who said he couldn’t get his music out because funds were tight, but after speaking with Crowell, everything changed.
“I just found the cheapest way to make music and get it to people, and that was through the internet,” he said.
“A lot of artists from other genres were doing that back then, but this country hadn’t tapped into it yet.”
He released the mixtape “Between the Pines” on his Facebook page, and although it only got 79 likes, country artist Billy Currington was singing his version of Hunt’s song “We Are Tonight” on the radio within a month.
The song quickly became one of the most played songs on country radio, eventually peaking at number one.

Hunt announced the birth of her first child, Lucy Lu, during a stage performance in Nashville on June 7, although her baby’s exact date of birth is still unknown

“My heart is definitely a lot harder since I left this little town. It’s amazing how this little girl melted it all away overnight a few weeks ago.”
