As if we needed another reason to love Sam Hunt.
One of our favorite new country singers stepped out for the Academy of Country Music Awards in Dallas today and opened up to ET about what it felt like to finally be in attendance.
“It means a whole lot,” Sam told us. “I’m really new to this, this is my very first award show, and these are the best of the best in country music. I’ve grown up watching the show, I’ve grown up listening to all the artists who participate in this award show. It’s phenomenal to be a part of it now.”
Though he admitted he was feeling some nerves, he told us he wasn't letting that ruin his day. “There’s so many familiar faces and everybody’s smiling here ‘cause there’s just a lot of fun energy,” Sam explained. “So it’s hard to really get nervous and not have a good time.”
And probably the most familiar face was his date: His mom, Joan Hunt.
“I’m here with my mother, Joan Hunt,” he adorably told us. “This is her first award show as well, so we’re going to do it together...I’m somewhat emotional and I think I get it from her, but so far, she’s kept it together. So we’ll see how the rest of the night goes."
Obviously we had to meet the woman who gave us one of country’s hottest stars -- both in terms of his music and his face. And it turns out she’s just as cute as her son.
