This is one of the best throwbacks we’ve ever seen! 

Many fans know that Sam Hunt was a former football star who left his journey as a quarterback to pursue a more creative side. His high school quarterback skills earned him a Heisman nomination, and lead to his starting position on the University of Alabama Birmingham football team. 

However, Hunt’s undergrad days were filled with more than running drills, and weightlifting. It was during this time that he began mastering music in his downtime.

This video footage from 2007 showcases Hunt in the football locker room playing the guitar, talking about his newfound passion for music. Although he always loved music, it wasn’t something he expected to do as a career.

He was a football guy, and always had been. He admits however, that sometimes the intensity of football could be stressful and music helped him stay calm. 

“Music is a more laid back, chill activity. Kind of keeps me balanced.”

We couldn’t agree more! This throwback video is a different look at Hunt, and it is definitely worth watching!
