Get a glass of wine and/or a bucket of popcorn as you enjoy the story of how Sam Hunt proposed to his soon-to-wife, Hannah Lee Fowler!
As we reported at the beginning of the month, Sam proposed to his on-again off-again girlfriend who inspired many of the songs of his debut album, Montevallo. Now know how the romantic proposal happened, the good, the bad, and the romantic!
“[The engagement] was exciting, I thought it was going to be a cinch when I got the ring, put it in my pocket the day I planned on asking her to marry me,” he said during an interview on Wednesday. “Once you have the ring in your pocket and the clock is ticking, you know, you could do it at any moment, it becomes a bigger deal than you think. It worked out perfectly. We took a trip over to Israel, and we were traveling and visiting all these really cool places and learning about that part of the world. There were a lot of places we were visiting that were really spiritual and it really connected us in a deeper spiritual way.”
But the proposal did not go as smoothly as hoped, and things got very real beforehand:
“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. “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.”
Well, Sam, we look forward to hearing more about the proposal in a song that we’re sure will be coming soon!
Sam, 2017 has been good to you…and it’s only January! Can’t wait to hear the full song and see you this summer!!
