Heads up, country music fans! Your main man Sam Hunt is set to perform this Sunday, May 21 at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.
The semi-newcomer will be performing his song "Body Like A Back Road," his newest single that dropped back in February, which is a really weird song title, but I guess some girls would find it ~romantic~.
Speaking of girls, the 32-year-old singer broke hearts when he married his longterm girlfriend, Hannah Lee Fowler, back in April 2017.
According to TMZ, Hunt and Fowler got married in a really small, intimate ceremony in Cedartown, Georgia and only close friends and family were invited to the affair. They kept it pretty secret up until then, which is pretty impressive as far as celebrity marriages are concerned.
He literally serenaded Fowler at the ACM Awards on May 10, and all of his fans instantly started crying. According to TasteOfCountry.com, Hunt revealed why he decided to incorporate her into the performance. He said,
Involving her with that performance was fun. She was a little uncomfortable about being there and a little overwhelmed. And she may not agree, but I thought that would warm her up a little bit to the whole experience and she may not admit it, but I think it did.
According to People, Hunt's debut album Montevallo was inspired by his and Fowler's painful breakup before they got back together in 2016.
In his song "Drinkin' Too Much," he apologizes directly to Hannah for making an album all about their relationship and breakup because it put their relationship right in the limelight.
The song goes,
I'm sorry I named the album Montevallo I'm sorry people know your name now and strangers hit you up on social media I'm sorry you can't listen to the radio I know you want your privacy You've got nothing to say to me But I wish you'd let me pay off your student loans with these songs you gave to me
Uhhhhh, did he literally offer to pay off her student loans?! And did she say no?!?! BITCH, IF YOU WON'T TAKE THAT OFFER I SURE AS HELL WILL. HIT ME UP, SAM. I'M BROKE AND DESPERATE.
Anyway, the couple is really cute, but Hannah keeps her life on the DL. In reference to their relationship, Hunt told People,
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. I am excited about doing that.
Sorry, Sam Hunt fans, but it seems like these two are gonna be togetha 4 evaaaaa.
Flordia Georgia Line is another country group set to perform at the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday, which is funny, seeing as I was literally thinking about them and how I wish their bro-country style never became a thing as I was writing this article. I'm only learning now that they'll be performing, so karma came and got me for being an asshole.
Other performers include Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Drake, Nicki Minaj, The Chainsmokers, Miley Cyrus and Cher. CHER!!!!!
The Billboard Music Awards will be hosted by Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens this Sunday, May 21, at 8 pm on ABC.
