Back in November Sam Hunt was arrested for DUI, and, in case you missed it, now he’s opening up about it in a new interview with HitsDailyDouble.
“It happened,” Sam shares. “People in my camp were talking about suppressing it, but why would I be afraid to talk about it? If it happens, it’s true.”
Sam says on that night he was out with friends, and he left his phone in an Uber. After going back to his friends and ordering pizza he fell asleep on the couch. He notes he “woke up groggy,” explaining, “I should’ve been more conscious, but I wasn’t. So I take responsibility.”
Sam insists he was “raised to respect (alcohol).” He shares, “Moderation is important. I’ve never wanted to glorify it,” adding, “It’s a cheap trick in country music, and I’ve always wanted to avoid that. I don’t like using [drinking] as a party song; for me, that wouldn’t be honest.”
