Just as Mother’s Day approaches, Sam Hunt released a new song, “Women In My Life,” that honors, well, the women in his life. Hunt teased the song on social media earlier in the week, saying, “Got another song finished! It’s called ‘Women in My Life,’ It’ll be out this coming Friday.”

The new ballad, written by Hunt with Zach Crowell, Ashley Gorley, and Josh Osborne, takes the listener through all the things the singer would not know how to do if it had not been for the women in his life to teach him. As he states, he’d be alive but not much more.
Some are here, some are gone / Some were mine all summer long / Solid as a rock, rolling like a stone / In and out my door / I can drive a stick, I can drive a nail / Hold down a job, fend for myself / Yeah, I’d be alive but not much more / If it wasn’t for, if it wasn’t for / All of the women in my life, Hunt sings.
“So much of the peace and joy I carry around as an adult comes from the women who raised me and poured love into my life throughout it,” shares Hunt. “There’s no telling who or what I would be without them. God bless them all. I’m forever grateful.”
“Women in My Life’ follows Hunt’s last single, “Water Under the Bridge,” written by Hunt, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Chris LaCorte.
Coming up, Hunt will be heading out on his Summer on the Outskirts Tour, which will kick off on July 6 in Hartford, Connecticut, making stops in Detroit, Oklahoma City, Atlanta, Dallas, Boston, and Tampa Bay before wrapping on September 9 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
In other Hunt news, the “Body Like a Back Road” singer shared that he is expecting his second child with his wife, Hannah Lee Fowler. The couple has an 11-month-old daughter, Lucy Louise. Hunt announced the news at his Las Vegas concert at Resorts World Theatre.
