Starting at the age of 16, Hunter Lott had never done much musically. Then one day in high school, he sang a song to his parents. They immediately thought he had a God-given talent and encouraged him to do more with his voice. For the first couple years, Hunter sang locally in his town but never really had much confidence for his voice. After hearing one of his National Anthem appearances at his high school, a radio station called to interview him and invited Hunter to come on air. This led to Hunter’s music being aired more widespread and he began receiving calls. Only then did he realize his own talent and decide to pursue music full time!
“Right after I graduated, I was invited to sing at an SEC basketball game in front of thousands of people. That was probably my first big appearance,” Hunter recalls. “It was then that I knew that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I wasn’t the least bit nervous. I was in my element, and I absolutely loved it.”
Hunter’s family members have always been his biggest supporters. “My parents are my rocks. I lost my granddad in 2016 suddenly to a heart attack, and it tore the family up,” Hunter emotionally shares. “My mom was not herself. She changed. When I started singing four months after he died, she snapped out of it, saying my singing saved her.” Hunter’s granddad was his biggest influence and he continues to remember him through his music.
Hunter’s music is also inspired by his deep faith. “If my music can help others like it’s already helped my family, I’ve got purpose,” he says. Whether about family or life circumstance, audiences everywhere can relate to Hunter’s music. His new Country Free EP, full of heart and passion, can be found everyone music is sold on November 8th.
