A source tells E! News exclusively that Hunt and a group of about four pals arrived to The Ainsworth between 9:00 and 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening.
"A lot of people at the restaurant knew who he was," explains the insider. "He was very nice and was buying drinks for people in the restaurant [and] bar. Sam was making sure everyone had a good time."
From there, we're told Hunt left The Ainsworth at around 11:30 p.m., got into an uber and continued his night out at a bar called Tin Roof.
As for what happened next, E! News previously reported that the 34-year-old "Body Like a Back Road" singer wasn't arrested and booked into the Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility until about 6 a.m. Thursday morning.
