When you are one of the biggest stars in country music, your pocket must be really fat. With Sam Hunt’s net worth of $3 million, his back must hurt from carrying those heavy money bags, but at least he is rolling in dough.
The country singer, 34, reportedly makes $300,000-$499,000 to perform or speak at any major event, according to Celebrity Talent International. If that fee wasn’t high enough, the website states charges may increase based on the engagement and his schedule. They also say there is little room for negotiation.
“There is low probability to book Sam Hunt for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range,” the site reads. “We will negotiate with the Sam Hunt agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Sam Hunt, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price.”
Unfortunately, Sam may need to put his upcoming appearances on hold for now. The country crooner was arrested for a DUI and open-container violation on Thursday, November 21, In Touch confirmed.
The star was allegedly driving on the wrong way down East Nashville road while intoxicated. A court affidavit disclosed the artist was seen driving south in northbound lanes and struggled to pull over after being flagged by cops. He was allegedly having “difficulty staying in the lane of travel and crossed the center divider several times before a stop was initiated.”
The documents also state “there was an obvious odor consistent with alcoholic beverage coming from the defendant as well as red bloodshot and watery eyes.” Allegedly there were also two empty beer bottles in the passenger seat next to him.
The singer has developed a reputation for his songs about partying and getting drunk. Some of his greatest tunes include titles such as, “House Party” and “Drinkin’ Too Much.” Although he has plenty of cash for his bail, we aren’t sure how far his bucks will get him when it comes to the law.
