Sam Hunt has released the official music video for “Outskirts,” a sentimental tune about a life not lived, this week. The song finds Hunt reminiscing on a past love and imagining the life he would have lived with his former flame.

While the video doesn’t tell the story of the song line for line, it features quintessential scenes of the small town life while loosely following a day-in-the-life a man who could be the center of the song’s story.

The black-and-white video begins with Hunt and his band showing up for a jam session in a warehouse-type environment. He performs the song for the entirety of the video while small-town scenes flash in and out.

The start of the video also shows a man – around middle age — pulling into town in his 18-wheeler. Eagle-eyed fans will notice he stops at the corner of Montevallo and Main, a nod to Hunt’s debut album, Montevallo.

As the clip continues, the man goes about his business in town — doing laundry, getting a haircut, eating at a diner — and walking the streets, possibly recalling past memories.

While Hunt continues to sings about memories of young love, the video shows scenes many small town residents will recognize: A high school car wash, a baseball team warming up for a game, a group of cheerleaders taking to the field.

The video ends with the man in the video packing his bag and rolling out of town — reaching the “Outskirts.”

Lyrics

There’s so much goin’ on in this town
To keep me busy, I’ve been runnin’ around
Up and down all these avenues
Doin’ everything but thinking ’bout you
As long as I stay on ’em, I’m fine
The city side of those city limit signs
You don’t really cross my mind
But soon as I get out here on the outskirts
I wish I was runnin’ by your house first
Something ’bout a summer in the South, sure
Shines like gold down these old
Round bail river valley backroads
Way back in the holler where the grass grows
God almighty, baby, we were that close
To ditchin’ this town and settlin’ down
Out here on the outskirts
If I’d have had a lick of damn sense
I’d be on the greener side of that fence
Little starter house we’ve finally outgrown
Twelve-hundred feet we’re ’bout to add on
Smilin’ out there watchin’ them
Big ol’ yellow buckets ’bout to break ground
While you’re shootin’ all my baby names down
But soon as I get out here on the outskirts
I wish I was runnin’ by your house first
Something ’bout a summer in the South, sure
Shines like gold down these old
Round bail river valley backroads
Way back in the holler where the grass grows
God almighty, baby, we were that close
To ditchin’ this town and settlin’ down
Out here on the outskirts
I’m over all these Saturday nights
I miss the stars in your eyes
We were gonna give up on the fast life
Have a couple babies, raise ’em up right
Take ’em to the river, get ’em baptized
Back in our day, if I’d have just stayed
I wouldn’t be livin’ in this condo
Hangin’ out with Hailey from Toronto
God almighty, baby, we were that close
To ditchin’ uptown, puttin’ roots down
Out here on the outskirts
