That Ring on Sam Hunt’s Finger Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means
Take a deep breath, ladies: Sam Hunt isn’t married (at least not yet).
Hunt sparked speculation over the weekend that he was a married man when he posted a photo on Instagram, showing him sporting a ring on his left hand. According to CMT, the singer hasn’t walked down the aisle officially, but he does think of himself as being married.
An unnamed source told the outlet that while Hunt and Hannah Lee Fowler have not officially said “I do,” the singer “enjoys the feel of his wedding ring and already considers himself to be married.”

The ring has a growing presence throughout Hunt’s Instagram page, as well.
Hunt and Fowler got engaged late last year. The news was revealed in January — one day after he dropped a surprise single titled “Drinkin’ Too Much,” which talks in depth about his on-again, off-again relationship with Fowler, who was also the inspiration for many of the songs on his debut album, Montevallo.
Hunt proposed during a spiritual pilgrimage to Israel, but it wasn’t as seamless as he had hoped.
“I had the ring ready and we actually got into this little disagreement, just before I planned on asking her to marry me, the night before I planned to ask her,” he shares (quote via Nash Country Daily). “I think because I felt like this disagreement spoiled my big plan to ask her to marry me, it irritated me a little more, which contributed to making the little fight worse and it escalated to the point where it actually worked out. We got real for a minute, after this little riff that we had. In that moment, it just felt perfect. Everything — after I asked her to marry me — just fizzled away and we celebrated and got excited together.”
During a live set at CRS 2017 in February, the star hinted to the audience that his nuptials were not far off.
“I’m getting married in a couple months, so between planning a wedding and keeping my fiancee smiling, I’m gonna try to kick up some new music for y’all,” he said.
Sources say wedding bells will ring in the next month or two.
