This Violin Cover of Sam Hunt’s ‘Body Like a Back Road’ Is Awesome! [Watch]
If you can't get enough of Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road," now a YouTube violinist has taped a rendition fit for a symphony hall.
Uploaded by musician Demola, the nearly three-minute video features the violinist playing the most melodic parts of the song, including the instrumental intro hook and Hunt's vocal line. The original backing track also accompanies Demola to assist in setting the vibe.
The playful summer anthem, which was released to country radio on Feb. 1, has become the most-downloaded country song of 2017, the fastest country song in history to reach 100 million total streams (10 weeks) and has so far peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard all-genre Hot 100 chart.

It’s worth noting that Florida Georgia Line‘s “Cruise” — which is the best-selling country digital single of all time — peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Hunt has the chance to surpass that mark, especially since "Body Like a Back Road" is still hanging in at No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart after a record-shattering run. Though Hunt has a long way to reach the 10-times platinum “Cruise” in terms of sales, “Body Like a Back Road” is a shoo-in to be the biggest country song of the summer and perhaps all of 2017.
Written by Hunt, Zach Crowell, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, “Body Like a Back Road” is the kind of pop-infused summer country anthem that Hunt has become known for. Currently, the superstar is on a nationwide tour with special guests Maren Morris, Chris Janson and Ryan Follese. Upcoming dates include Los Angeles, Phoenix and St. Paul, Minn.
