The 33-year-old country star was a winner even before he has taken his award to home for the top country song at the Billboard Music Awards; he had beautiful wife Hannah Lee Fowler on his arm.
Sam Hunt and Hannah made a rare public appearance together for the awards show in Las Vegas on Sunday, sitting side-by-side for the star-studded event of performances. The singer looked sharp in a brown suit and white button-up shirt, leaving the tie at home while his partner remained simple wearing a beige long-sleeve mini dress and swept her hair into a fun ponytail. The night has marked the first joint appearance of the couple since the CMT Music Awards in June 2017. Sam has made sure to give Hannah a shout out as he accepts his award for the song “Body Like a Back Road.”
He has explained, “My wife: Thank you for being so selfless this past year, sacrificing so much for me and our future.” The couple got engaged in January 2017 and tied the knot in an intimate Georgia ceremony just months later, but it took some work on Sam’s part to get on point.
The crooner has told Entertainment Tonight, “I think last summer I went out [to Hawaii] about seven times in about three months,” at last year’s CMT Awards. He has said, “Trying to talk to her about coming back. Moreover, the seventh trip I convinced her.” As Sam’s career kicked off, he came to know that his date has been sacrificing many things for her husband.
He has admitted that she has her own life and her ambitions and her dreams and things are important to her, and he wants to support those as much as she’s supported him. Sam explained, “I think it’s been a little lopsided these first few weeks of marriage, so I owe her for sure… however, she’s having fun.”
