Sam Hunt is nothing if not persistent.
The country megastar, who recently married wife Hannah Lee Fowler, told Entertainment Tonight on the CMT Music Awards red carpet that before he tied the knot, he wouldn’t settle for oceans separating him and then ex-girlfriend, who he eventually wooed back to him.
“I think last summer I went out [to Hawaii] about seven times in about three months,” Sam says. “Trying to talk to her about coming back. And the seventh trip I convinced her.”
The couple were on- and off-again for several years. Hannah was even the subject of Sam’s debut album Montevallo, named after the town in which he met his bride.
Mr. and Mrs. Hunt, who matched in black on the CMT Awards carpet, were engaged in early January and said “I do” in an intimate Georgia ceremony in April.
