Sam Hunt's "Body Like A Back Road" took last summer by storm and it was awarded as this year's Single of the Year at the ACM Awards. But when it was announced that Sam was taking home the trophy, the presenters had to accept it on his behalf...which led everyone to ask "where was Sam Hunt?"
Sam Hunt deserved that one. The most played song in the country. Wonder where he is? It seemed a surprise that he wasn't in attendance? #ACMAwards— Amanda Orlando/NASH (@amandaorlando) April 16, 2018
I’m happy that Sam Hunt won but sad he’s not there😩 #ACMawards— Natalie (@natalieee_rd) April 16, 2018
Does Sam Hunt even still exist? He hasn't released an album or follow up song since "Body Like A Backroad" made it big and he skipped out on this show. Where is he? #ACMawards— Nick from Chicago (@FearlessRiOT) April 16, 2018
WELL we have an answer.
Sam was celebrating the wedding of his tour manager and friend, John Worthington. He expressed in an Instagram post that while he couldn't be in attendance next year, we will for sure see him at next year's ACM Awards!
