The Take Your Time singer began his music career writing songs for artists such as Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney, but Sam has made a name for himself as one of country's most promising stars after releasing his debut album Montevello last year (14).

On Monday (07Dec15), he was nominated for his first Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Country Album, but Sam is still getting used to fame, and his celebrity lifestyle is making it difficult to write songs for his next album.

"I am just now starting to get back in the studio, starting to work on new songs, so hopefully next year I'll be able to dig in a little bit more," Sam tells Entertainment Tonight. "I've been having an issue lately with getting inspired. I've been trying to think about what I want to write about, but my lifestyle has really changed, so folks aren't really going to necessarily relate to the lifestyle I've been living... I'm gonna have to really dig in and come up with some ideas that sort of blend my old lifestyle with what I'm doing now, so we'll see how that works out. I can't write about busses and stages all the time!"
