Sam Hunt Releases Fun New Music Video For His Latest Single "Water Under The Bridge."
Weeks after the birth of his baby daughter, Hunt is releasing his new single, “Water Under the Bridge.” Now the upbeat summer song has a video to match.
Hunt co-wrote “Water Under the Bridge” with Chris LaCorte, Shane McAnally, and Josh Osborne. The rollicking, up-tempo track is a nostalgic look back at the lighthearted day of youth.
Lyrics like: “That muddy river, it was rollin’. We didn’t care where it was goin’. We had it made, we didn’t know it. We were young, dumb, and so full of it. Broken bottles and graffiti, beer and girls and poppin’ wheelies. Love was fun and life was easy. Now it’s just water under the bridge.” Keep true to Sam's upbeat lyrical style.
“Water Under the Bridge” is the follow-up to Hunt’s recent chart-topper “23,” which he also wrote with LaCorte, McAnally, and Osborne. “23” is Hunt’s eighth No. 1 hit and is included on his album “Southside,” which is also home to No. 1 songs “Breaking Up Was Easy in the ’90s,” “Kinfolks,” and “Hard To Forget.”
This song comes as only the second from the new dad this year. Hunt opened up about the baby to Country Countdown USA before her arrival, explaining he took some time off to be with her and that he and his wife wanted to meet their little girl before naming her.
“I haven’t talked about this, but I have a little girl on the way,” Hunt said. “I have a baby coming in about eight weeks. I blocked out two months at the end of May and early June. Really, this year revolves around that big news in my life.”
He said he’s also collecting advice from his famous friends who have had children, including Russell Dickerson, whose son was born in 2020.
“I saw Russell Dickerson a few weeks ago; we talked about fatherhood. I tried to pick his brain,” Hunt said. “Over the last four or five years, I’ve had a lot of buddies who’ve had their first kids. So, I feel I’m ready for it.”
A new baby and single won’t be the only new addition to Hunt’s life this year – he’s also expecting a new album.
