Sam Hunt’s Wedding Taking Priority Over New Music

Sam Hunt fans hoping for a new album will have to wait a little bit longer — at least until he ties the knot. The “Body Like a Back Road” singer says that new music is taking the back burner to his nuptials.

“I am working on new music and new songs,” he tells CMT Hot 20 Countdown. “I’ll continue to do that throughout the spring and summer. But that will be priority No. 2 behind planning a wedding and hanging with my fiancée, who will be my wife. Instead of waiting to have a full record done to put out new music, I’d like to be able to put out new music as I continue to work on it as we go.”

Hunt announced his engagement to longtime on-again, off-again girlfriend Hannah Lee Fowler in early 2017. They’ve since been wrapped up in wedding planning, though Hunt shares that their families are helping them plan for the big day.

“Fortunately her sister works in that business, but we’re low key,” he dishes. “We’re low maintenance — keep it small and quaint and quiet. So it’s not been too much of a burden.

“She’s a good girl,” he adds of his wife-to-be. “Made to be.”

Though he has not yet walked down the aisle, Hunt has been photographed with a ring on his ring finger, which has led to a lot of chatter. An unnamed source previously told CMT that while Hunt and Fowler have not officially said “I do,” the singer “enjoys the feel of his wedding ring and already considers himself to be married.”
