Sam Hunt was miles away when his named was called as the ACM Single Record of the Year winner for “Body Like A Back Road” on Sunday night in Las Vegas.
It was Hunt’s first ACM win, and when Dustin Lynch and Nancy O’Dell announced the honor, they both looked confused when no one approached the stage.
“I was celebrating the marriage of my longtime friend and tour manager John Worthington,” the superstar shared on Instagram, also thanking the Academy of Country Music for the award.
Hunt has kept a low profile since getting married last April. In fact, Sunday was his one-year wedding anniversary, as well.
