Sam Hunt Talks 'Body Like a Back Road,' Fashion, Not Getting Star-Struck at CMT Music Awards

Sam Hunt joined Billboard backstage at the 2017 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday, discussing his relaxed-but-chic fashion on the big night, his hit single "Body Like a Back Road" and how he keeps from getting star struck. 

"The stars are just people," he said. "We're all just people. We put on fancy clothes and try to look cool as often as we can but at the end of the day we're just fans and we're up here trying to give back what music has given to us. I love that country music captures that element of commonality best of all."
