While every country music fan knows "Body Like a Back Road" singer Sam Hunt by now, you may not be as familiar with his wife, Hannah. It's hard not to fall in love with their relationship. I'm personally still swooning from when he serenaded her at the 2017 ACM awards. While you can undoubtedly chronicle the road to their love story through Hunt's music through songs like "Break Up in a Small Town" and "Drinkin' Too Much," we wanted to shed some light on who Fowler is outside her marriage.
Sam Hunt's wife Hannah Lee Fowler grew up in Montevallo, Alabama, inspiring the title of Hunt's 2014 debut album. He met Fowler before he moved to Nashville and wrote the album inspired by their relationship and experiences they shared. If you've listened to the album, you can feel the heartbreak from Hunt. They temporarily broke up, and it took Hunt a lot of pleading to convince Hannah to bring him back. He has claimed that he should have made Fowler a co-writer on that album based on how much she inspired and contributed to the final product.
Over three months, the country star flew back and forth to Hawaii seven times to convince her to move back. The seventh time was a charm, and they were married in Hunt's hometown of Cedartown, Georgia in 2017. While it's challenging to track day to day married life between Hunt and Fowler, who doesn't have social media, her sisters often post pictures of her. She comes from a large family with multiple siblings, and they are all incredibly close. Her father, Scott Fowler, is a pastor where he lives in Hannah's hometown with her mother, Linda Fowler. A big family is putting it mildly since she has six brothers and sisters: Joshua, Rebekah, Sarah, Jonathan, Elizabeth. She's also a nurse, who, as her sister Rebekah puts it, "Saves lives on the reg."
While not many specifics are known about her personal life, it's safe to say that Sam Hunt's wife, Hannah Lee Fowler has way more to offer than just inspiring the album Montevallo.
