For the first time ever, Sam Hunt has confirmed that he is, in fact, engaged to girlfriend Hannah Lee Fowler.
Sounds like Nashville first reported their engagement at the beginning of January 2017, but neither Hunt not Fowler had commented on the alleged proposal. Rumors began swirling in December 2016 when Fowler was seen with a ring on that finger.
During an interview on The Bobby Bones Show, Hunt spoke to Bones and his crew about his recent travels, specially his trip to Israel.
"I was over there with my girlfriend at the time and got engaged over by the Sea of Galilee," he said nonchalantly. "She had already been, so she had a little bit of insight into the places we should go and check out so it was nice to have a tour guide."
Bones wasn't going to let Hunt off the hook with just confirming his engagement, he needed the details! "Walk me through that, the engagement. Did you have the ring in your pocket?" Bones asked.
"I did. I thought it was going to be a cinch," he laughs. "It's one of those things like, oh, what's the big deal? You just get the ring out and ask her to marry you, but when you're carrying it around in your pocket, that moment is pressing. It's a completely different deal!"
He reveals that the couple got into a small fight and he thought his plans were ruined!
"Something came up...that irritated her and I realized this may mess up my big plan to ask her to marry me that night, and it kind of agitated me more about this issue. It turned into this kind of fight that, fortunately, led to the perfect opportunity to ask her to marry me. So this little altercation we had actually worked out. It was a special moment."
Hunt details their ten year on-and-off relationship on his song, "Drinkin' Too Much", and even included her name in the song.
Congratulations to Sam and Hannah on their engagement!
