With toilet paper still out of stock at most stores, Sam Hunt’s wife Hannah thought she’d found a solution when she bought a bidet, however, Hunt wasn’t having it.

“I got out of the house the other day and my wife had ordered a bidet,” the superstar shared with a laugh during a recent interview with CMT’s Hot 20. “I was like, ‘nah, we’re not doing that,’ so I made her send it back.”

Host Katie Cook tried to assure Hunt that bidets are “the best invention in the world,” but it seemed as if there’s no changing the Georgia native’s mind.

“I’ve heard that, but I’m not even going to attempt to put that theory to the test,” he laughed, adding, “This was like a cheap one, too. It looked like it cost about $40, so I didn’t trust it.”

Sam and Hannah, who recently celebrated their third wedding anniversary, are laying low at home right now. Hunt said he’s using the time to catch up with his family and a lot of his old friends over the phone.

Hunt’s latest single, “Hard To Forget,” continues to climb the charts at country radio. The uptempo track is the latest release from his new album, Southside, which debuted atop of the Billboard Country Albums Chart this week. With sales over 45,900, Southside is the biggest country album debut of 2020 so far.

The 12-track record was entirely co-written by Hunt and includes hits such as “Body Like a Backroad”, “Drinking Too Much”, “Downtown’s Dead”, “Kinfolks” and “Sinning with You.”
