There’s another added benefit to the whiskers: “It gets cold in Nashville, so I like to have a beard in the winter,” revealed Hunt, 32.

The happy couple were engaged in early January and wed in an intimate Georgia ceremony in April.

“I am a lone wolf naturally, and I’ve kinda been taking that approach the past three years,” Hunt told ET. “I’m close with my band, but for the most part, I feel like I’ve been out here kind of solo.”

Now, with Fowler by his side, things are even better.

“To have somebody with me riding shotgun has been really awesome as I journey through all this craziness,” said Hunt.
