Sam Hunt was born and raised in Cedartown, Georgia.
Sam Hunt picked up his first guitar at persons under the age of 18, just after finishing high school. He recalled to Jam! Music: “I went to a pawn store and got a guitar there and I learned to play and at the time I thought it would just be a hobby. I was running off to college and I guessed, ‘Well in my downtime, maybe I’ll learn a few songs.’ And simply fell in love with it. And no matter how tired I was, after I got home from football practise, football camp, I would always make time to pick up the guitar. Throughout college, I got a little better at it and my passion grew .”
