Amazing! Ahead of his big show at AMSOIL Arena on Friday (March 22nd), country star Sam Hunt spent some time in downtown Duluth. He got his steps in with a workout at the YMCA.

Some lucky employees and fans of the country star were lucky enough to spot Sam in the crowd. He is pretty tall and famous at that, so he is pretty hard to miss! He happily posed for photos.

Duluth YMCA staff shared some of the fun photos on their Facebook page that afternoon, also thanking the star for stopping by. The gym is located just a short walk from the venue so it's not a huge surprise he made a little trek to the area.

Imagine working out at the gym before the concert, looking over to the treadmill on the right and seeing Sam Hunt! I can't confirm he was on a treadmill but you know what I mean. Ha!

The only thing that would have made this better is Brett Young also joining him for a workout pre-show. Sam also posed for photos with some other lucky fans around the same time, also in downtown Duluth.

I guess if you want to see a country star in town, just hang out in downtown Duluth and you're bound to run into them! I love that Sam kept it casual and was kind to fans who recognized him.

The show was great! I forgot how many songs Sam Hunt has written over the years for other big artists and also how many songs he has in his own right. Lily Rose and Brett Young also killed it.

This was our first major concert of the year and it was the first of many! We have Tim McGraw, Kane Brown, Carly Pearce, Dan + Shay and so many other stars headed to Minnesota in 2024.
