"I put it on to try it on, and decided it felt too good and I didn't want to take it off," Hunt said of his black qalo ring. "It's only a few weeks left before we do get married."

While the "Make You Miss Me" singer wouldn't say exactly when he'll tie the knot, he couldn't help but gush about the "intimate" affiar.

"Intimate and hometown were the two adjectives that [describe the wedding best]," he shared. "Low key, low maintenance. We are both kind of introverted people for the most part, so we don't like celebrating ourselves too much."

"If there ever is a time to do it, it is now, and it is more to celebrate the union of marriage than it is each other," he added. "I am excited about doing that."

Hunt announced in January that he and Fowler, who was the main inspiration behind his album, Montevallo, were engaged, but Sunday's ACMs marks their first red carpet together.

"It means a lot [that she's here with me]," he told ET of Fowler, who he's been dating on and off since 2008. "This change of lifestyle happened when the two of us weren't dating and together, so I've been introducing her to my new life a little bit at a time over the last 6 months.

"This is a big leap compared to some of the small steps we have taken so far, so I hope she enjoys it, it's a radical change for sure, but she is optimistic and I am proud that she is out here with me." he said. "She looks gorgeous and she's feeling good, smiling, so that's a good sign."

As for how Hunt knew it was the right time to propose?

"It's just that feeling you have, that heart radar that guides us in life, it just starts tapping on your shoulder when it's time and just make a move," he explained. "So that's what I did."
