Sam Hunt: Ready to Cover the ’90s Ladies

10 Tunes for His Set List

Of all the country newcomers to promise some cover songs from the girls who ruled the country charts in the ‘90s, I have to admit, I never would’ve guessed it would be Sam Hunt.

With his unorthodox spin on country music, he’s actually the least likely guy to be adding Reba, Trisha and Wynonna songs to his set list. And yet that’s what he told ABC News Radio he’s doing.

“Covers are tricky, but we’ve been sort of working up a little thing where we’re gonna do some cool songs that I grew up listening to,” Hunt said. “Maybe it’s sort of a nod to a lot of the female country singers of the era.”

Hunt has already planned on adding Wynonna’s “No One Else on Earth” and Reba’s “Fancy” (which is actually a Bobbie Gentry cover) to his show. But maybe we should come up with a list of other artists and songs we’d like to hear him sing.
