Love always comes first, even for Sam Hunt.
Putting his fiancée, Hannah Lee Fowler, before anything else, Hunt went on the record to say that his music will be on the back burner for a bit as he focuses on his upcoming nuptials. While he and his wife-to-be previously planned on having a spring ceremony, it only means that he’s pushing work on his sophomore album behind anything that comes to his romantic relationship.
“I am working on new music and new songs,” Hunt said to 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.”
The couple announced their engagement back at the beginning of 2017 after being on-again, off-again for several years. When it comes to wedding planning for their future though, Hunt admits his future sister-in-law has got all of the details on lockdown.
“Fortunately her sister works in that business, but we’re low key,” he revealed. “We’re low maintenance — keep it small and quaint and quiet. So it’s not been too much of a burden.”
Hunt’s latest single, “Body Like a Back Road,” is currently playing on country radio.
