Sam Hunt's latest hit, “Hard To Forget,” was written around a sample of a Webb Pierce song that his co-writer, Luke Laird, brought to him. They were in a writing session working on something else when Luke mentioned this sample and offered to play it for Sam. They stopped everything and listened, and as Sam tells us EXCLUSIVELY, they immediately set out to write the song that would showcase this bit of music. “He pulled it up and he played it and I was just instantly inspired by it and instantly knew that we had to write a song to that track and he essentially has sampled the Webb Pierce song. I'd been looking for the perfect sample and that was it. As soon as I heard it I knew it was the one, but I can't take credit for it. That was Luke's idea.”
“Hard To Forget” sits in the Top 10 and climbing on the country charts.
It's the fourth single from his new Southside album.
