“Break Up in a Small Town”
Written by Zach Crowell, Sam Hunt, and Shane McAnally
I just don’t get Sam Hunt.
This is a fairly well-written song, and the chorus is solid and hook-laden.
But the whole spoken word verse shtick doesn’t work. He doesn’t even have an interesting speaking voice. Just monotone. His rhythm is off, and he simply talks too slowly.
Maybe I’ve gotten too old and outdated, but to me, it just sounds dumb.
