Sam Hunt Releases Video For New Single 'Outskirts'

Country star Sam Hunt recently released a video for his latest single “Outskirts.”

The black-and-white video, directed by Tim Mattia, begins with Hunt and his band showing up for a jam session in a warehouse-type environment.

“But soon as I get out here on the outskirts / I wish I was runnin’ by your house first,” Hunt sings.

According to a press statement, the visual “captures a ‘day in the life’ of main street in a rural town. Shown through the eyes of a truck driver passing through, the video captures the heartbeat of a small town as the driver takes in all of the characters from and events that unfold throughout the day.”

The video also shows Hunt and his band performing the song in a warehouse.

Hunt co-wrote “Outskirts” with Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers, and Josh Osborne.

“I wrote from the perspective of a sort of free rambling man, single bachelor, trying to find his way in the world,” Hunt explained when he visited Apple Music‘s “Today’s Country Radio with Kelleigh Bannen.”

“If I’m content and happy and all’s going well, I’m not necessarily inspired to grab a guitar and write a song… so I pretty much wrote from the perspective of the other guy: if I had taken that solo road and chosen this other life, what would that be like?” he added.
