Sam Hunt, Maren Morris & Chris Janson at Jiffy Lube Live

Saturday, 09/16/2017 7:00 PM

"Drinkin' Too Much" singer Sam Hunt embarks on a summer-long tour this year, and he comes to Jiffy Lube Live on Saturday 16th September 2017! The country singer is hitting the road with fellow rising country stars Maren Morris & Chris Janson, and will be entertaining fans with his high-octane genre-bending hits, and some brand new hits in the making! Sam Hunt launched into the country music scene in 2014 with his smash hit debut album Montevallo, which became (and remains) the best-selling debut album for a country artist since 2011. Montevallo charted several record-breaking singles, making Hunt the first country music artist in 22 years to reach the top of three country music charts simultaneously, the first country music artist since Clint Black in 1989 to occupy both year-end number one album and single, and the first solo male artist to land four number ones on the Country Airplay chart from a debut studio album.
