Using music to speak out against domestic violence.

Did you know the popular country music song  "Take Your Time," by Country artist Sam Hunt features a different storyline than most music videos. Instead of pairing his romantic ballad with a standard romantic plot line, Hunt uses his video to confront the topic of domestic violence. And the result is powerful.
The video features a young woman with an infant who's in an abusive relationship. Hunt watches her from afar at a bar, laundry mat and gas station. Each time he sees the woman, her partner is shoving her and yelling at her.
At the end of the music video, the woman gets into her car to drive away from her partner, and he hits her in their front yard. Hunt finally intervenes. Watch the full video below.
