Sam Hunt just released his new music video for “Single for the Summer,” but life may not be imitating art for long for the country star.

“I am [single],” he told CMT on the red carpet at the CMT Music Awards. “It’s the beginning of the summer . . . I am.”

But just ’cause he’s flying solo doesn’t mean Hunt’s not looking for that one special gal.

“I’m not at the same place I was when I wrote this song a few years ago,” he said, adding that he’s “hoping there’s a possibility” he’s no longer single by the fall.

Last year, Hunt, 31, opened up to PEOPLE about his perfect girl. “I think somebody who’s open-minded, honest,” he said. “Honesty is a big thing with me. The ‘it factor’ is one of those things you can’t put in a category . . . You just have to feel when you feel it.”
