Sam Hunt won’t be shaving his beard anytime soon, and you can thank his wife.

“I grew it out, and she said she liked it,” Hunt tells Entertainment Tonight. “Her opinion matters most, so I kept it. It gets cold in Nashville, so I like to have a beard in the winter.”

The “Body Like a Back Road” singer marriedHannah Lee Fowler six months ago, and he’s been enjoying being able to spend time with his wife and share their life together. “I am like a lone wolf naturally, and I’ve kinda been taking that approach the past three years,” he confesses. “I’m close with my band, but for the most part, I feel like I’ve been out here kind of solo. And to have somebody with me riding shotgun has been really awesome as I journey through all this craziness.”

Hunt and Fowler tied the knot in a hometown ceremony on April 15. They’d had an on-again, off-again relationship for several years, and Fowler was the source of many of the songs on Hunt’s debut album, Montevallo, including “Cop Car.” They had been broken up, but began dating quietly again, keeping their romance under wraps.

In a previous interview, Hunt admitted that he took several trips to Hawaii in hopes to win his former flame back. “I think last summer I went out [to Hawaii] about seven times in about three months,” he said“Trying to talk to her about coming back. And the seventh trip I convinced her.”

The singer proposed to Fowler in January. He’s prioritized marriage over new music, and it’s not clear when a new album will hit shelves.
