Country Artists Who Have Gotten Engaged or Married in 2017 [PICTURES]
We're only a few months into 2017, but love is definitely in the air. So far this year, a bunch of country music stars have surprised fans with engagement or wedding news.
Sam Hunt kicked off 2017 with a bang, announcing a new single on Jan. 1 and his engagement on Jan. 2. There's no official word yet on when the country singer will wed his on-then-off-then-on-again girlfriend Hannah Lee Fowler, but Hunt has hinted that it will be soon. Fowler is the inspiration for many of the songs on Hunt's debut album, Montevallo.
Graham Deloach of A Thousand Horses has also popped the question in 2017, as has Colton Swon of the Swon Brothers. Swon made an entire video reel of highlights from his relationship with girlfriend Caroline Glaser and debuted the sweet clip during a family movie outing before he proposed.
Cassadee Pope got engaged in February and will wed her longtime boyfriend (now fiance!) Rian Dawson later this year, but it may be Frankie Ballard who takes the cake for surprise romance news: In March, the country singer shocked his fans by revealing that he'd gotten married ... when nobody knew he was even engaged!
