Singer-songwriter Sam Hunt is the latest artist signed to MCA Records Nashville‘s roster.

UMG Nashville Chairman & CEO Mike Dungan says, “Rarely have I met a new artist who felt so ‘ready to go,’ and yet our early efforts to take him to the market are yielding responses that are wildly beyond any expectations. We are jacked!”

Hunt’s debut single for the label, “Leave The Night On,” will release to Country radio on June 16. Hunt previously found radio success on Sirius XM with “Raised On It.”

The Cedartown, Ga., native has co-written the songs “Come Over” (Kenny Chesney), “We Are Tonight” (Billy Currington), and “Cop Car” (Keith Urban).
