It hasn’t been the smoothest-sailing romance for Sam Hunt and his wife, Hannah Lee Fowler. The two have been married since 2017, but their love story has actually been over a decade in the making — and the rocky road that led to their marriage is actually the inspiration for some of Sam’s best songs.
But while their relationship had its ups and downs, it’s actually a really sweet story. Here’s everything you need to know about Sam and Hannah’s relationship, and who Hannah is outside of her marriage.
Sam Hunt and wife Hannah Lee met in 2008.
This love story starts more than 10 years ago when the pair met in 2008. They broke up before Sam moved to Nashville to work on his debut album, which he named “Montevallo.” Sam named the album that because, while he’s not actually from Montevallo, that was Hannah’s hometown, and she influenced a lot of the songs on the album.
