Contrary to reports that a new music was in the works, including a suggestion by his label president that there are plans in place for a new album, Hunt told the Boot, 'No, I don't have a timeline, to be honest."
It sounds like the newly married country crossover artist has got his priorities in a new order. Hunt went on to explain, 'I don't want to come off as' I'm not excited about making music or I'm not very hopeful to have new music for the fans who are anxiously awaiting new music, but, you know, I'm in a place in my career and in my life where I'm not willing to give music 100 percent of me anymore."

"I want to address an insensitive comment I made on a very sensitive issue, especially in a minority dominated industry like hip hop," he wrote. "'My entire empire's backbone is led by two of the strongest people I know and they happen to be women, my mother and sister," he continued. "The operations wouldn't run without them and I have the highest regard and respect for women in this industry. I have a daughter myself, my most cherished gift in the world."
He insisted he has learned from his "mistake" and may change his unspoken (until recently) rule. 'My comment is not a reflection of my beliefs on the issue," he said. [It's] a mistake I regret. I hope to use my mistake, my platform, and the community to create positive discussion to implement change on a very important issue--respect for the ones who stand up to say, 'Hey that isn't right.' Now it's time to accept responsibility and all do better." Read morehere.

My latest single is called "1000 Pink Balloons" and it was written over a period of a few years. The verse and chorus' came easily bit the bridge took a little while to find its way. The song has a few different meanings emotionally for me. It really taps into lost opportunities or squandered talent most for me. I'd like to think it has a lot to do with the years I spent touring and performing to small amounts of people an feeling like I gave some great performances that most people never saw. Almost like all the work you do as a touring indie artist feels like your just standing still sometimes. It also touches on feeling powerless over the world and it's governing forces and ultimately how relationships often fade away.
I performed the song many times live and it always got a good response which encouraged me to record it for this album. Emotionally I also feel like it conveys how in life you have relationships that are solid but then seem to fade away mysteriously, I guess that's just life but it's always irked and intrigued me. We all are flawed and simply human and its hard for us to maintain and build healthy relationships. I guess it's just life really that some of the good ones slip away.
In this latest video for the single the director Pat Fogarty really got more of a break up feel and I totally get that, however it's just one element of what it's about. It's more about being powerless with re to the world, nature, relationships, survival, and feeling like you want everyone to see you but ultimately you feel invisible in today's world - you know the deepest sh*t you can think of, haha. If it was simply about just a "break up" then I think the overall message would be a bit lost but the concept for the video was quirky and cool and fun and works because in the end I guess we are powerless, we do fade away, moments of greatness are lost to the wind, and ultimately we break up. But that's just life ya know? Okay you can cry now:)
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself here and learn more about the albumright here!

Frances Stanaway, who is battling a terminal illness, wore a custom t-shirt that read "Shake It For Me, Luke" when she met Bryan backstage and he did not disappoint her request. While in one photo, Bryan is seen hugging Stanaway, the other shows the country singer looking surprised as the older fan touches his backside.
The "Country Girl" singer actually established a rule for his meet-and greets, where fans cannot grab his butt, as he told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview last year. It seems that Bryan was willing to bend the rules for this adorable superfan.
The meet and greet with Luke was set in place by the Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care for Stanaway. Watch the heartwarming interview about her night and Luke's Ellen interviewhere.
The move he's talking about is featured in his new video for 'Another Love Song," which was released earlier this week (July 28). Ne-Yo gave Rebecca a sneak peek and showed her the signature move that he says everyone will be doing this summer.
"It's a move that my choreographer found," Ne-Yo says. "She's really good for finding what the next thing is going to be' When you see me do this dance, look at the guy to my right! He's doing it right and I'm doing it wrong as hell--and they kept it in the video. I don't know why they kept it, cause I'm doing it completely wrong but he's doing it right." Check out Ne-Yo's new videohere.
