Sam Hunt’s Wedding Hasn’t Happened Yet

Exclusive: Why He's Already Wearing the Ring

No, Sam Hunt did not have a secret wedding.

But, yes, Sam Hunt is acting like a married man.

Hunt is engaged to Hannah Lee Fowler, and is planning to tie the knot very soon.

At an industry event in late February, Hunt said, “I’m getting married in a couple of months, so between planning a wedding and keeping my fiancĂ©e smiling, I’m trying to kick up some new music for y’all.”

But then on Saturday (March 11), Hunt posted a captionless Instagram photo of himself with a band on his left ring finger, and the Internet blew up with people speculating that he and Fowler had made it official without telling anyone.

That is not the case.

CMT’s Cody Alan has learned exclusively that Hunt already feels like a married man and that he just likes the feel of his ring, even though the actual wedding is still several weeks away.

You can hear Alan’s entire interview with Hunt when CMT After MidNite and CMT Radio Live broadcasts from RodeoHouston on Friday (March 17).
