Sam Hunt’s wife of nearly five years, Hannah Lee Fowler, has filed for divorce just months before the arrival of the couple’s first child.
TMZ first reported the news and cited documents recently filed in Tennessee. In the divorce filing, Fowler accuses Hunt of “inappropriate marital conduct” and “adultery.”
“The husband is guilty of such cruel and inhuman treatment or conduct toward the spouse as renders cohabitation unsafe or improper,” the legal documents read, TMZ reports. The couple, who wed in April 2017, hadn’t publicly announced their pregnancy, but the documents reveal that the baby is due in May. The legal documents also allude to a prenup as Fowler requested that each party be “awarded their respective separate property” as well as alimony (including transitional alimony, rehabilitative alimony, and alimony in future), child support and primary custody of the baby.
Sam and Hannah dated off and on for more than a decade before getting engaged in early 2017 and got married shortly after.
The couple reportedly dated off-and-on after meeting in 2008. Hunt even named his debut album Montevallo after Hannah’s Alabama hometown.

“I didn’t actually live in that town,” he told E! News about the meaning behind the album name. “I had never visited Montevallo, but right before I left to go to Nashville I met a girl from there. A lot of the experiences I had with her and the relationship I had with her, that inspired a lot of the songwriting on the album.”
Montevallo launched Hunt’s country music career thanks to the album’s single, “Take Your Time.” Hunt became the first artists since Clint Black to have his debut studio album and single top the year-end charts in the same year with Montevallo and “Take Your Time.” Hunt also became the first male solo artist to land four number ones on the Country Airplay Chart from a debut studio album.
