ABC/Image Group LAEven though Sam Hunt has one of the hottest songs in any genre of music right now and has lined up one of the most-anticipated tours of the summer, opener Maren Morris can confirm that what he said earlier is true: music is on the back burner until he has a honeymoon under his belt with his bride Hannah Lee Fowler.
“We haven’t talked about any specifics yet,” Maren said just days before Sam tied the knot Saturday in his hometown in Georgia. “I think he’s in the middle of being engaged right now, and probably planning a wedding. So I think we’re all compartmentalizing our lives right now and we’ll probably get into more tour specifics closer to the actual debut of it.”
Maren and Sam still have plenty of time. They don’t hit the road on their 15 in a 30 Tour with Chris Janson until June 1. In the meantime, Maren admits she’s a huge fan of Sam’s new single, “Body Like a Back Road,” which is also a big hit on the pop charts.
“I love that about his music, that you can’t really classify it,” Maren says of her upcoming tourmate. “It’s country and he’s got this southern drawl, but there’s this edge to the whole thing and his writing is so smart… it’s cool to be on a tour with someone that I have really admired the journey of the last couple years,” she adds.
Maren herself has two songs climbing the country chart right now: her own “I Could Use a Love Song” and “Craving You” with Thomas Rhett.
