Sam Hunt Has No Plans to Shave His Beard Anytime Soon
Will he shave or won’t he? That is the question on every Sam Hunt fans’ minds with the country hunks’ latest accessory… his beard. The Georgia native has been sporting his bushy beard for quite some time now and it seems as if it’s here to stay, thanks to his beautiful bride, Hannah.
“I grew it out, and she said she liked it,” Hunt told Entertainment Tonight at CBS Radio’s We Can Survive concert. “Her opinion matters most, so I kept it.”
While her opinion may matter above all else, there’s also a practical reason to Hunt’s beard too.
“It gets cold in Nashville, so I like to have a beard in the winter,” shared the “Body Like A Back Road” singer.
Hunt has long looked to Hannah for her opinion on things, even consulting her to get a woman’s perspective on the lyrics when writing songs that appeared on his major label debut Montevallo. Now that the two are married, having tied the knot in April, Hunt appreciates having his wife out on the road to go through the ups and downs of this journey… together.
“I am a lone wolf naturally, and I’ve kinda been taking that approach the past three years. I’m close with my band, but for the most part, I feel like I’ve been out here kind of solo,” he explained. “To have somebody with me riding shotgun has been really awesome as I journey through all this craziness.”
The couple spent much of their time together out on the road as Hunt toured the nation for his 15 in a 30 Tour, with special guests Maren Morris, Chris Janson and Ryan Follese. His most recent single, “Body Like A Boad Road,” held the top spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 34 weeks before being dethroned just recently by Kane Brown’s “What Ifs.”
