Love has definitely been in the air in 2017. A whole bunch of country music stars surprised fans with engagement or wedding news throughout the year.

Sam Hunt kicked off 2017 with a bang, announcing a new single on Jan. 1 and his engagement on Jan. 2. The country singer then wed his on-then-off-then-on-again girlfriend, Hannah Lee Fowler, in April. Fowler is the inspiration for many of the songs on Hunt's debut album, Montevallo.

Graham Deloach of A Thousand Horses also popped the question in 2017, as did Colton Swon of the Swon Brothers. Swon, in fact, made an entire video reel of highlights from his relationship with girlfriend Caroline Glaser and debuted the sweet clip during a family movie outing before he proposed.

But it may be Frankie Ballard who takes the cake for surprise romance news: In March, the country singer shocked his fans by revealing that he'd gotten married ... when nobody knew he was even engaged!
