His muse! Sam Hunt got married to his wife, Hannah Lee Fowler, in 2017 after being in an off-and-on relationship since 2008. However, the country star, 34, didn’t always have it easy with the brunette beauty. Sam had to win back the nurse, 31, by writing several love songs about her and hopping on seven flights, no big deal.
In 2014, the “Body Like a Back Road” crooner debuted his first album called Montevallo — which was named after Hannah’s hometown in Alabama — and got candid about what happened between the two of them. “I didn’t actually live in that town,” he told E! News at the time. “I had never visited Montevallo, but right before I left to go to Nashville, I met a girl from there. A lot of the experiences I had with her, and the relationship I had with her, that inspired a lot of the songwriting on the album.”
So, which bops were written about Hannah? “Ex to See,” “Make You Miss Me,” “Drinkin’ Too Much” and “Break Up In a Small Town,” all gave insight into how Sam was feeling at the time. Luckily, the handsome hunk was able to win over his love. “I think last summer I went out [to Hawaii] about seven times in about three months,” he told Entertainment Tonight in 2017. “Trying to talk to her about coming back. And the seventh trip, I convinced her.”
The two tied the knot in April 2017 in Sam’s hometown state of Georgia, and he couldn’t help but gush about the momentous occasion. “It was perfect,” he raved. “Hannah was happy, and that was my number one priority, so it worked out. My family was there. I got to spend time with people I haven’t gotten to see in a while and celebrate a special time in my life, and in my wife’s life, and our family’s lives, so it was a really, really great moment.”
The Nashville transplant has been out of the spotlight lately but is gearing up to put some new music out into the world very soon. “I’ve got another song coming out here in a couple of weeks,” he told Taste of Country. “I’m turning in the record in January, and it’ll come out before we start touring in the summer. So, I don’t know an exact date but within that window.”
Get you a guy who writes love songs for you like Sam does, right?!
