"I’m in a place in my career and in my life where I’m not willing to give music 100 percent of me anymore."

Sam Hunt, who recently broke Florida Georgia Line’s record for consecutive number of weeks at number one with his hit single, “Body Like a Back Road,” has admitted he’s taking a step back.

Contrary to reports that a new music was in the works, including a suggestion by his label president that there are plans in place for a new album, Hunt told the Boot, “No, I don’t have a timeline, to be honest.”

It sounds like the newly married country crossover artist has got his priorities in a new order.

Hunt went on to explain, “I don’t want to come off as… I’m not excited about making music or I’m not very hopeful to have new music for the fans who are anxiously awaiting new music, but, you know, I’m in a place in my career and in my life where I’m not willing to give music 100 percent of me anymore.”

“I did that for four years, and it was fruitful as far as my career goes, but everything else in my life had to be put on hold, and I’m just not willing to do that for years and years at a time.”
