Last Friday, rapper Snoop Dogg joined Sam Hunt on stage during California’s Stagecoach country music festival, but their collaboration may not end there.
According to Billboard, the iconic rapper met Hunt on his tour bus before the show to give him songs for his next album.
“We just presented Sam Hunt with four songs that my artists [on Cadillac Music] wrote for him that will hopefully make Sam’s record,” Snoop said. “One of them is ‘So Proud to Be an American,’ it’s like an anthem and it makes you feel good to be who you are.”
Hunt gave his take on the meeting with Snoop to Rolling Stone Country. “I was just flattered that he was interested enough to offer those opportunities and contribute,” said Hunt. “I love that, stereotypes aside, he loves music and genres don’t matter.”
Here’s a video of their collaboration at Stagecoach. This sea of cowboy hats is well acquainted with Snoop’s music.
This wouldn’t be Snoop’s first foray into the country music world. He recorded a couple songs with Willie Nelson, “Superman” and “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.”
Hunt will continue touring until the fall when he says he’ll head back to Nashville and figure out his next record. In December, he told press that he was struggling with writer’s block while working on new material for his next album. His upcoming project may likely be a hodgepodge of songs by writers who work in genres across the music industry. We’re curious to see how it all turns out.
