Fans hoping for a new Sam Hunt album will have to wait a little bit longer — at least until he ties the knot. Sam says that new music is taking the back burner to his nuptials.
“I am working on new music and new songs,” he tells CMT Hot 20 Countdown. “I’ll continue to do that throughout the spring and summer. But that will be priority No. 2 behind planning a wedding and hanging with my fiancée, who will be my wife. Instead of waiting to have a full record done to put out new music, I’d like to be able to put out new music as I continue to work on it as we go.”
Hunt announced his engagement to longtime on-again, off-again girlfriend Hannah Lee Fowler in early 2017. They’ve since been wrapped up in wedding planning, though Hunt shares that their families are helping them plan for the big day.
“Fortunately her sister works in that business,” he says. “We’re low maintenance — keep it small and quaint and quiet. So it’s not been too much of a burden.
“She’s a good girl,” he adds of his wife-to-be. “Made to be.”
