"House Party" is a song co-written and recorded by American singer Sam Hunt. It was released to country radio, by MCA Nashville on June 1, 2015 as the third single from his debut studio album Montevallo (2014). The song was written by Hunt, Zach Crowell and Jerry Flowers.

Critical reception

Taste of Country reviewed the song favorably, saying "This singer continues to stretch the genre to the delight of some and the agony of others. Acoustic guitar drives the beat in 'House Party,' while a very country-sounding guitar lick works around his melodic, syncopated lyrics. This is Hunt's lightest single to date, as well."[3]
