Sam Hunt Says Marriage Couldn’t Wait

Sam Hunt has a lot on his plate these days — his first headlining tour, a new album in the works and a two-month-old marriage. Despite his professional commitments, Sam tells us putting off marriage to Hannah Lee Fowler was not an option.

“I’ve never been a very good planner, and getting married’s kind of like putting out songs — when you’re ready to go you want to go tomorrow, so this spring wasn’t necessarily the best time for me to get married with all that I’ve got going on but I wanted to go ahead and do that immediately, so I’ve been juggling things like moving into a new house and just getting life reorganized within my new position as a spouse.”

Sam continues on his 15 In A 30 tour on Thursday in Toronto. He had to bow out of his scheduled show on Sunday in Hunter, New York at the Taste of Country Music Festival due to illness.

He posted a note to fans on social media writing, “New York I’ve never had to cancel a show before but tonight I flat out can’t sing anywhere near as well as I need to do these songs justice. I got sick and I’ve had some issues with my voice. I tried pushing through for a show a couple nights ago and zapped everything I had left. I believe in mind over matter but this time it let me down. I’ll do what I need to do to make it up to all the folks who came out to see us tonight.”
