It was brought to the world’s attention that Sam Hunt and his wife were not at the ACM Awards this year when it was announced that he had won Single Record of the Year with “Body Like A Back Road”  and he wasn’t there to accept his award. He had been traveling to other countries with his wife not too long ago so we weren’t sure if he just wasn’t in the country or what was going on. But in a message posted on Instagram Monday (4/16), Hunt said that he was unable to attend the ceremony in person because he was celebrating the marriage of his longtime friend and tour manager, John Worthington. Sam also sent his gratitude to the Academy of Country Music for giving him the Single Record of the Year honor, saying it made his weekend “extra special.”
