Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to share how you feel with that special someone. However, it can lead to some awkward moments, as Sam Hunt recalls. He was dating a girl who was headed to Honduras on a mission trip not long after Valentine’s Day and decided to write her a love note acknowledging the trip.
“I had written her a letter in Spanish,” he told Sounds Like Nashville. “It was way too soon to say ‘I love you’ and I accidentally told her that I loved her in Spanish without knowing it. So it created a really awkward moment when she called me out on it. That’s a Valentine’s Day memory that I won’t forget.”
As for getting Hunt a gift, he’s not into material things on the lovey-dovey holiday. “To please your girl and to make her Valentine’s Day wishes come true,” he said. “Selflessness goes a long way on Valentine’s Day.”
Let’s be honest, he’d probably take a Grammy, though. Hunt is up the all-genre Best New Artist and Best Country Album trophies during the ceremony on February 15th.
