He liked it, so he put a ring on it…well, Sam Hunt put a ring on his own special finger.

Rumors were churning recently over speculation that Hunt and his fiancée, Hannah Lee Fowler, had already tied the knot after a snowy Instagram post he shared showed him wearing a ring on that finger. Hundreds of comments about Hunt’s marital status poured in on the post and now, we finally have some clarification thanks to CMT’s Cody Alan.

The syndicated radio host was told by sources that Hunt “enjoys the feel” of the ring and that he and Fowler have not walked down the aisle just yet. The “Body Like a Back Road” singer reportedly already considers himself a married man to his bride-to-be even though they won’t officially say “I do” until later this spring.

Hunt surprised fans at the beginning of the new year by announcing his engagement to Fowler, who inspired many of the works on his debut album, Montevallo. The couple previously dated years ago and reconnected over the past year to rekindle the lost flame.

2017 is shaping up to be a huge year for Hunt as he will not only become happily off the market for good, but also embark on his 15 in a 30 Tour with Maren Morris and Chris Janson. Fans can find more details about the tour on his website now.
