Love Was In The Air This Past Holiday Season

Well it was all about love this past holiday season! Between Christmas and New Years a few of country’s hunks and darlins’ had big announcements to share with their fans. First to break the silence, Kelsea Ballerini was proposed to by her aussie boyfriend and country newcomer, Morgan Evans after a 9 month relationship that blossomed before her adoring fans. Evans and Ballerini met earlier in 2016 while hosting an Australian Music Awards. Evans made sure he called Dibs and the pair have been seen exploring his native homeland.


A few states down and in her childhood bedroom, singer/songwriter Ruston Kelly popped the question to Kacey Musgraves. Musgraves stated in her instagram post of the ring, “I didn’t say yes…I said HELL YESSSS!! Last night, the best man I’ve ever met got down on one knee in my little pink childhood home..in the same room I played with my ponies and barbies and asked me the easiest question I’ve ever been asked. ❤ I finally know what everyone means when they say ‘you just know.'” The pair first displayed their relationship on social media back in July, some may say it was quick but when you know you know!


Country crooner and newcomer William Michael Morgan finally “met a girl” and popped the question to girlfriend and country royalty Jennifer Wayne (granddaughter of the late John Wayne). The couples sweet relationship was displayed all over their social media and we’d agree with the majority that the pair is the sweetest around!


After the release of long awaited new music, it was announced Sam Hunt too was indeed engaged to on again off again girlfriend Hannah Lee Fowler. The woman responsible for the melodic magic, heartfelt emotions and heartbreak in his debut album Montevallo, Hunt took the high road in releasing an “apology” in the lyrics of his “Drinkin’ Too Much“.

“I’m sorry I named the album ‘Montevallo’

And I’m sorry people know you name now

And strangers hit you up on social media

I’m sorry you can’t listen to the radio

And drive out to the place we used to get peaches down in Pelham

I know you want your privacy

And you’ve got nothing to say to me

But I wish you’d let me pay off your student loans

To these songs you gave to me”


I foresee this being Hunt’s next hit..



First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in a baby carriage! Thats right- baby news was announced by Ashley Monroe on Christmas day. Monroe and husband (Atlanta Braves Pitcher) John Danks will welcome their first child later this year. Seems Monroe will be “On To Something Good” this year!


Congrats to our newly engaged and soon to be parents from all of us at Think Country!


Sammy Boots
I am a country music loving asphalt cowgirl with a passion for helping kids with cancer. I was born and raised in Orlando, FL where I currently reside. Although I was born and raised in the city don’t let that fool you. If you run into me, there’s no doubt you will find me wearing one of my many pairs of cowboy boots! There’s really not a time I can recall as a child where I wasn’t jammin’ out to country on the radio with my mom and two sisters in the car. Country music has always been a strong part of my life; recalling when I was 5, I sat on Santa’s lap and all I asked for was an Alan Jackson CD. Who knew a year later I would attend my very first concert to see Mr. Jackson. When not submerged in country music, I am a professional photographer, social media junkie, and most importantly spend my time devoted to my involvement with children with cancer. My passion started when a family friend was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the tender age of 12. What began with putting together some material, making her a blanket and wanting to get involved, turned into making blankets through her organization for her friends and other kids at a local hospital. One day I picked up a crochet book and decided to add crochet hats to the packages. Pairing that decision with my passion to help eventually turned into my own organization, “Unraveled by Samantha Dawn”. Word started to spread about what I was doing and parents began contacting me to crochet hats and wigs for their own child suffering from cancer. From 2012 to 2016, I’ve crocheted almost 200 hats and wigs, and just added dolls in the last year that have shipped to kids all over the United States, England, Holland, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil and Canada. I have been fortunate enough to meet a number of the kids and their families here in Orlando, in Nashville and along road trips to North Carolina. Jesus has blessed me with this opportunity and I am forever thankful for it. I look to Country Music for comfort, joy, and relaxation. It’s cool to be part of the very best fan base ever! I’m so lucky that my passion for these kids has effortlessly paired with my love for this genre and I hope one day to start a program to get these down to earth artists involved in more children’s hospitals around the US.
