While most of Sam Hunt‘s debut album, Montevallo, is supposedly about his now wife Hannah Lee Fowler (“Break Up in a Small Town,” “Make You Miss Me”), she wasn’t just sitting around listening to those songs waiting on Sam to come and get her.
In a recent post on Instagram, Sam explained that Hannah has been off trying to save the world while he was in Nashville trying to do the music thing.
“While I was in Nashville trying to get things going with music, Hannah was providing medical care to Hondurans during the 2009 coup. She was working in Syrian refugee camps and delivering Kurd babies in northern Iraq during the 2014 elections. She spent time in Israel where she helped with a feeding program and worked with Holocaust survivors.
This photo was taken by @igotnostringsin the Marshall Islands- where she was a part of a team providing basic health care to people on the island of Lib.
Her heart for humanity is one of the things I admire most about her but she’s put her ambitions on hold to be with me for the past year and a half. This winter, thanks to the people who’ve supported me and my music, I’m able to go with her and be a part of her dreams as they’ve become mine. If you’ve ever bought a record or come to a show, God bless you for giving us this opportunity.”
Yeah, we’ll never listen to “Take Your Time” the same ever again.
We’re not totally sure where Sam and Hannah are right now, we’re guessing it’s somewhere in Central America with plantains and fishing.
You’ll also remember that after Sam and Hannah were married earlier this year, Sam revealed that he flew to Hawaii seven times to win her back, “I think last summer I went out [to Hawaii] about seven times in about three months. Trying to talk to her about coming back. And the seventh trip I convinced her.” It all makes sense now.
But, while Hannah is working, Sam is getting in some fishing.
