Best Up Close and Personal: Sam Hunt
Sam Hunt received one of the most raucous receptions during Friday night's Nissan Stadium lineup. And the genre-blurring singer clearly fed off the energy. Instead of staying miles away from the crowd on the ginormous main stage, Hunt sprinted over to the camera platforms for a better view of his people, and even hopped down for a few high-fives. It was the mark of a showman, one who realizes that big beats can fall flat without a personal connection to back them up. For Hunt, "House Party" wasn't just the centerpiece of his four-song set — it was a realized goal.
