Sam Hunt’s latest hit, “Take Your Time,” is poised to take over the top spot on the country charts. He co-wrote the song with Josh Osborne and Shane McAnally, the same co-writers with whom Sam penned his first Number One single, “Leave the Night On.”

Sam tells us that while often guys are just looking to pick up a girl, the guy in this song is truly interested in getting to know this woman.

Sam is nominated for ACM, New Artist of the Year. Fan voting is open through Sunday at VoteACM.com. The 50th Annual ACM Awards, hosted by Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton, will be broadcast live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

Kip Moore has released the video for his new single, “I’m To Blame.” The clip, which was filmed at the VFW in Smyrna, Tennessee, features Kip as a wedding singer who runs off with the groom’s bride.

But in real life, Kip is hardly in the marrying mood. He told People, “I don’t have a great track record when it comes to relationships. I’ve been a boyfriend maybe three or four times in my whole life. I hang out here and there, but I’m kind of that person who longs for so much solo time, freedom, alone time. It does seem like a lot of guys my age in this business are getting married, but I’ll probably be the last bachelor standing!”

Kip is headed to Dallas next week to perform at the ACM Party for a Cause music festival, taking place on April 17th and 18th. The event precedes the 50th Annual ACM Awards, which airs live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on April 19th on CBS.

Kip joins Dierks Bentley on the Sounds of Summer tour, which kicks off on June 5th in Raleigh, North Carolina. The trek will also feature Canaan Smith and Maddie & Tae.
