Sam Hunt celebrated the success of his “Kinfolks” radio single, which he co-wrote with Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers and Josh Osborne, over the weekend.

The song is all about family and he recently told us, “For me, it’s my hometown, it’s my grandmothers, all my cousins, we have a big family and always got together around the holidays, so it’s all my cousins. And I’ve been posting some pictures on Instagram.”

He added, “It’s images too. It’s those basketball goals, the houses, the cars, the whole, some of those looks just are nostalgic, and so it’s just home really for the most part.”

When writing the song, Hunt also gives a nod to his Mom. he shared, “Her name is Joan, yeah. My brother calls her Joanie, and so I wanted to give it a little personal touch, so I threw that line in there.”

Sam posted to Instagram last night (2/23), “Watching the fight with some kinfolks. The song went #1 this week. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen!”
