Watch the New Country Music Video that Fights Domestic Violence

Not only is Sam Hunt incredibly adorable, but now he shows his activism against domestic violence in his new video called “Take Your Time”.

This song could have easily been interpreted as a typical love story, but Hunt chose to use it to share the story of  a man who became a hero for a battered woman. Throughout the video, Sam sees a woman in a clearly abusive relationship being controlled, yelled at, and hit by her boyfriend. At the end, Sam finally chooses to intervene by attacking the man so the woman could escape from the abuse. It is quite impressive to see a male country star use this controversial video to get people’s attention.

Thank you Sam for reminding us that if you become an active bystander, even if it is for a moment, you could help save someone.

With April kicking off Sexual Assault Awareness Month (#SAAM), remember that you can act as a bystander and help someone who needs it. Click here for more information regarding the bystander intervention.
