Sam Hunt and estranged wife Hannah Lee Fowler have reportedly called off their divorce nearly three months after filing.

Fowler initially filed for divorce back in February, citing "inappropriate marital conduct" and "adultery" as the reasons for divorce.

People had previously reported that, according to court documents, Fowler had withdrawn the complaint just hours after filing the original suit on Friday (Feb. 18) and requested that the petition be "voluntarily nonsuited without prejudice," which means she can file again in the future.

In the original filing documents obtained by TMZ, Fowler revealed that she is pregnant with the couple's first child.

At the time of the filing, Fowler asked for primary custody of their child as well as alimony and child support.

The couple married in 2017. They met when the "Body Like a Backroad" singer was a quarterback for the University of Alabama, Birmingham.

Hunt's debut 2014 album Montevallo is named after Fowler's hometown. His song "Drinkin' Too Much," featured on his 2020 album Southside, references their relationship.

"I'm sorry I named the album Montevallo/And I'm sorry people know your name nowAnd strangers hit you up on social mediaI'm sorry you can't listen to the radio," Hunt sings. "And drive out to the place where we used to get peaches down in PelhamI know you want your privacyAnd you've got nothing to say to meBut I wish you'd let me pay of your student loans with these songs you gave to me."

In 2019, Hunt was arrested on DUI and open container charges in Nashville. He pleaded guilty in 2021. According to The Tennessean, Hunt was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail with all time suspended exccept for 48 hours.
