Audio / Sam Hunt talks about the song, “Young Once.”


Sam Hunt (Young Once) OC: …before. :41
“’Young Once,’ so that’s a song that reflects on youth in a nostalgic way. I’m a little older than I was when I made my first record and reflecting on your younger days is a theme in country music that you see all the time. So, it’s like how do you do that in an original way?  How do you write that song in an original way? And for some reason, God has just put ideas in front of me that sometimes when these ideas come into a room, whether I come up with it or a cowriter, it’s like ‘How’s this not been written yet?’ And this is one of those ideas that I thought how has nobody flipped this hook and written this song this way before?”
