Country artist Sam Hunt recently released the official music video for his song called Locked Up. Not only did he channel the original Man in Black, Johnny Cash, but, he also got a little help from his wife.

Sam Hunt Had Other Aspirations Before Country Music

Sam Hunt was born in Cedartown, Georgia. He may be a recognized name in country music these days, but, he had other career aspirations before making it big in music. Originally, Hunt wanted to pursue a career in sports. He played football all throughout his high school and college years.

Hunt played quarterback for the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He had a promising football career on the horizon, and even caught the interest of the Kansas City Chiefs. However, he decided to pack a bag for Nashville and trade in his sports prospects for a music career. Judging by how things have gone, he certainly made a good choice.

Hunt’s Song Locked Up Hits Close To Home

Sam Hunt’s song Locked Up is a tune that resonates with a lot of his listeners. It’s also a song that is deeply personal for him. It tells the story of when he was still young, dumb, and bolstered by the exuberance of youth. Hunt getting “locked up” made him realize that he needed to change his ways, and set a different course, away from the path he was on at the time.

This is a song that many listeners can relate to, as many of us have all done questionable, and even stupid things in our youth. In Sam Hunt’s own words, he was “30 years old and still acting a fool.” So, he was getting up there in age before he realized the error in his ways. Thankfully, though, the realization dawned on him that he needed to change, and he eventually did.
