Sam Hunt has taken the world’s most unlikely compliment, “Body Like A Back Road” all the way to No. 1 on every country music chart out there and the song is in the Top 15 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Written by Hunt, Zach Crowell, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, “Body Like A Back Road” is spending its 20th straight week at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart, with sales and streams making it the most-downloaded country song of 2017 and the No. 3 most-downloaded songs across all genres year-to-date. It is the fastest country song in history to reach 100M total streams (10 weeks) and with over 212M total streams is the Top Streaming Country Song of 2017.

Previously, Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” spent 24 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart.

In addition to the historic single, Hunt’s monumental 2014 debut album, Montevallo, is now RIAA-certified Triple Platinum. Montevallo topped the Billboard Country Albums Chart in its first week and remains the best-selling debut album for a country artist since 2011.

Currently, Hunt is out on his first-ever major headlining tour with Maren Morris and Chris Janson.
