Sam Hunt Sports Ring on Left Hand in New Photo, Prompts Wedding Speculationby Sterling Whitaker
Has Sam Hunt already tied the knot with his longtime love, Hannah Lee Fowler? In a new picture posted to his Instagram on Saturday (March 11), the singer-songwriter sports what some fans think could be a wedding ring on his left hand.
The news came out that Hunt and Fowler were engaged on Jan. 2, one day after he dropped a surprise single titled “Drinkin’ Too Much” that talked in depth about his on-again, off-again relationship with the mysterious Fowler, who was the inspiration for many of the songs on his smash debut album, Montevallo.
Hunt and Fowler got engaged during a spiritual pilgrimage to Israel, but even then it wasn’t all hearts and flowers.
Fans React to Sam Hunt’s Engagement
“I had the ring ready and we actually got into this little disagreement, just before I planned on asking her to marry me, the night before I planned to ask her,” he shares (quote via Nash Country Daily). “I think because I felt like this disagreement spoiled my big plan to ask her to marry me, it irritated me a little more, which contributed to making the little fight worse and it escalated to the point where it actually worked out. We got real for a minute, after this little riff that we had. In that moment, it just felt perfect. Everything — after I asked her to marry me — just fizzled away and we celebrated and got excited together.”
On Feb. 23, during a live set at CRS 2017, Hunt let it slip that his nuptials were not far off.
“I’m getting married in a couple months, so between planning a wedding and keeping my fiancee smiling, I’m gonna try to kick up some new music for y’all,” Hunt said before going into his new single “Body Like a Backroad.” He wrote and released the song just after news of the engagement broke.
His upcoming 15 In a 30 Tour takes it name from a line in the song. That kicks off June 1, featuring Maren Morris, Chris Janson and Ryan Follese as his support acts. A headlining slot at the 2017 Taste of Country Music Festival is among the dates on Hunt’s schedule.
Contacted by Taste of Country, a representative for Hunt had no official comment on the Instagram photo.
