Looks Like Sam Hunt Spent Some Time in Bernal, Mexico, in Preparation of Releasing New Single, “Downtown’s Dead”

To help promote his new single, “Downtown’s Dead,” Sam Hunt posted nine photos on Instagram on May 15 that appear to depict the colonial village of Bernal, Mexico.

Located in the Mexican state, Queretaro, the town of Bernal—population 2,909—is about 150 miles north of Mexico City.

If you take a gander at the screen grab of Sam’s Instagram account below, two of the photos are recognizable Bernal landmarks, including the red colonial church and the Peña de Bernal rock monolith.

There’s a good chance we will hear more in the coming days and weeks about Sam’s visit to Bernal.
