Sam Hunt Reveals Reason He's Keeping His Beard

There’s a simple reason Sam Hunt is keeping his bushy beard: Because wife Hannah Lee Fowler approves of it.

“I grew it out, and she said she liked it,” Hunt told ET this past weekend.

“Her opinion matters most, so I kept it.” Smart guy.

The 32-year-old “Body Like a Back Road” star said there’s also a practical reason for the facial hair – and it’s one Canadian men can relate to.

“It gets cold in Nashville,” he explained, “so I like to have a beard in the winter.”
