Sam Hunt Releases New Song “Came The Closest”

Date:

Diamond-selling hitmaker Sam Hunt releases new song “Came The Closest” today. Hunt continues to master somber introspection and aching reflection with this latest tune written with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, which Hunt also co-produced with Zach Crowell.

To the relief of his fans, Hunt has surprise dropped new music every few months including his recent “Women In My Life,” “Start Nowhere,” “Water Under The Bridge” and his latest country radio staple, “Outskirts.”

Hunt recently announced his arena headlining OUTSKIRTS TOUR 2024 produced by Live Nation. On sale today, the tour kicks off Feb. 22 in Grand Rapids with stops across the country including Louisville, Nashville, Milwaukee, Green Bay, and more. Special guests include multi-Platinum-selling country artist Brett Young and fellow Georgia-native Lily Rose.

Came The Closest – written by Sam Hunt, Shane McAnally, and Josh Osborne

I cut my hair off, I wore a tie

Woke up at 7, came home at 5 for a while

I traded whiskey for Miller Lite

And I know your momma calls me polite

Mr. Right

Aw, but that ain’t right

‘Cause I always gotta know what’s behind the other door

I’m never gonna be that straight-laced Sunday morning man you were lookin’ for

Nobody’s ever tied me down in clapboard house

With some kids and a bed of roses

But you came the closest

We never married ’cause I never asked

I left the diamond under the glass

Someday you’ll be glad

‘Cause you’ll find somebody who shaves everyday

When your dad comes around

He’ll know what to say

I just ain’t that way, I just ain’t that way

‘Cause I always gotta know what’s behind the other door

I’m never gonna be that straight-laced Sunday morning man you were lookin’ for

Nobody’s ever tied me down in clapboard house

With some kids and a bed of roses

But you came the closest

Moving on is the only thing I know how to do

If I could’ve stood still then I would have stood still with you

But I always gotta know what’s behind the other door

I’m never gonna be that straight-laced Sunday morning man you were lookin’ for

Nobody’s ever tied me down in clapboard house

With some kids and a bed of roses

But you came the closest

You came the closest
