Sam Hunt Gets Emotional On New Track Called ‘Start Nowhere’
Sam Hunt recently dropped a new track called ‘Start Nowhere,’ where he talks about missing home.
Sam sings, “I’m packin’ it up, movin’ along / Headed for dirt the stars fell on / Heavenly pines, holier ground / You probably ain’t ever heard of the town / Life caught up the way that it does / Don’t even know who I was / Before my world got so unsteady / Man, I’m ready to feel all right.”
He continued, “Well, I don’t know, but I’ve been told / Moss don’t grow on a rolling stone / Me, I wanna go where the river rolls / And breathe in that old down-home feelin’ again / ‘Cause lately I’ve been / Spinnin’ my wheels out gone with the wind / When I need to get back to who I am / There ain’t but just one road there / Sometimes you gotta start nowhere.”
Hunt said on IG, “When you grow up in a small town, you love where you’re from, you are where you’re from, and you answer the call of adventure when you turn 18 and take off out into the big wide world.”
He added, “Before you head off to college, you stop by your local pawn shop, buy a guitar and start writing songs about it. A few songs turn into more songs, and somehow by the grace of God, those songs give you the opportunity to travel the country with some of the best guys you know having the time of your life. But you look up one day, and up is down, and down is up. You realize you’ve been gone too long, and the only way to straighten yourself back out is to go back home. That’s what this song is about. Going home.”
What is the biggest thing that made you homesick when you left home to pursue a new career?
