Sam Hunt Announces ‘Southside’ Summer 2020 Tour With Kip Moore
Sam Hunt said he was devoting 2020 to touring, and finally, he's proving he wasn't kidding. The "Kinfolks" singer just announced the Southside Tour.
The tour begins on May 28 and includes stops nationwide through September. Kip Moore and Travis Denning will be the primary opening acts on the tour, with Ernest and Brandi Cyrus also joining him. The tour is named after a new album he also announced on Wednesday morning (Feb. 5). Southside will be available on April 3. Tickets for the Southside Summer Tour go on sale on Feb. 14 through Ticketmaster.
Last October, Hunt told Taste of Country that he was eager to get back on the road. "We'll be playing more shows than I have in several years," he shared at the time. "We'll be hitting it hard. I've devoted all of next year to touring. I told my manager the more, the better."
"Kinfolks" is the first single from Hunt's second studio album, the follow-up to Montevallo (2014). He'd released just one other song from the album, "Sinning With You." The 35-year-old says he's spent the majority of January learning new songs for the upcoming tour.
Neither "Downtown's Dead" or "Body Like a Back Road" are expected to be on the album when it's released. Montevallo produced four No. 1 hits and a Top 5 in "Break Up in a Small Town." All songs released and promoted digitally went multi-Platinum.
