Sam Hunt just released a live/acoustic version of his hit “Make You Miss Me.” This song is one of the chart toppers from his debut album “Montevallo.”

Released in 2014, this album and song have been riding around the charts for a year and a half. This is an astonishing achievement from a debut album that is competing with the likes of Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean.

Elias Leight from Billboard┬ámentioned a positive review as they stated “eighty percent of this album could compete easily in the top 40”, and the album “comes from a guy with a hit on the country charts, but has little to identify it as country.” Both of these statements are true even almost two years after its original release. Sam has bared some flack for his influences of pop and R&B in what is climbing the top 40 country charts. However there is a big flux of younger generations buying it as it reflects more with them rather than traditional country.

Either way, this is a nice rendition of the hit, without the studio flare of the record. Have a listen in the video above, and lyrics below:

“You hear a new song, it’s your favorite
Pretty soon you’ll be changing the station
And all your old shoes are looking brand new
They wanna be worn but they never get the chance to
Heavy into everything
Ready for the next thing
Catch a ride for a while then you’re over it
You change your mind on it
Soon as the shine’s gone
Like you always do, but you don’t know it yet but

Woah woah
I ain’t gonna be that easy to leave
Woah woah
Girl I’m gonna make you miss me
Make you wish that you were sleeping in my shirt
Lie about my jacket and tell everyone it’s yours
When your phone rings after midnight and you’re thinking maybe it’s me
Gonna make you miss me

You’re cold and hot
You burn out like a match
Keep a slim knot in the strings you attach
You think it’s easy, but that’s a lie
The only reason that you’re good at goodbye is
Every boy you ever met, was too easy to forget
Well, I ain’t going out like that

Woah woah
I ain’t gonna be that easy to leave
Woah woah
Girl I’m gonna make you miss me
Make you wish that you were sleeping in my shirt
Lie about my jacket and tell everyone it’s yours
When your phone rings after midnight and you’re thinking maybe it’s me
I’m gonna make you miss me (Yeah)

Woah woah
I ain’t gonna be that easy to leave
Woah woah
Girl I’m gonna make you miss me

Writing letters that you’re never gonna mail
Stay up and paint my favourite shade of red on your nails
‘Cause you can’t fall asleep and you’re wishing you were with me
I’m gonna make you miss me
Make you miss me
Make you miss the way my hand fit in your hand
When you’re dialing my number listening to my favourite bands
I’ll say, hey baby you know all you can say
Is come and get me
I’m gonna make you miss me (Miss me)
I’m gonna make you miss me

And oh oh oh
I’m gonna make you miss me”
