EXCLUSIVE: Sam Hunt Sports Engagement Ring at ACM Awards, Gushes About Upcoming 'Intimate' Wedding
By Jennifer Drysdale
Sam Hunt might be sporting a ring on that finger, but he's not married... yet!
ET's Sophie Schillaci caught up with the 32-year-old singer at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday where he opened up about his new jewelry -- and revealed that his upcoming wedding to Hannah Lee Fowler is just weeks away.
While the "Make You Miss Me" singer wouldn't say exactly when he'll tie the knot, he couldn't help but gush about the "intimate" affiar.
"Intimate and hometown were the two adjectives that [describe the wedding best]," he shared. "Low key, low maintenance. We are both kind of introverted people for the most part, so we don't like celebrating ourselves too much."
"If there ever is a time to do it, it is now, and it is more to celebrate the union of marriage than it is each other," he added. "I am excited about doing that."
Hunt announced in January that he and Fowler, who was the main inspiration behind his album, Montevallo, were engaged, but Sunday's ACMs marks their first red carpet together.
"It means a lot [that she's here with me]," he told ET of Fowler, who he's been dating on and off since 2008. "This change of lifestyle happened when the two of us weren't dating and together, so I've been introducing her to my new life a little bit at a time over the last 6 months."
"This is a big leap compared to some of the small steps we have taken so far, so I hope she enjoys it, it's a radical change for sure, but she is optimistic and I am proud that she is out here with me." he said. "She looks gorgeous and she's feeling good, smiling, so that's a good sign."
As for how Hunt -- who will be performing at the ACMs -- knew it was the right time to propose?
"It's just that feeling you have, that heart radar that guides us in life, it just starts tapping on your shoulder when it's time and just make a move," he explained. "So that's what I did."
