Written by Hunt with Zach Crowell, Josh Osborne, Shane McAnally and Charlie Handsome, “Downtown’s Dead” follows Hunt’s record-breaking, 5x Platinum-selling smash and the newly-named 2018 Billboard Music Award’s Top Country Song, “Body Like A Back Road.” At 34 weeks, Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” set the record for the most weeks at No. 1 in the six-decade history of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and earned Hunt the 2017 Academy of Country Music Award for “Single Record of the Year.” Hunt will also receive the ACM Gene Weed Milestone Award at the ACM Honors ceremony this summer in recognition of this extraordinary achievement.
