HUNTER HAYES has been dating his girlfriend Libby Barnes for at least two years. Maybe more. And that's like a million in showbiz years, so "People" asked him how they keep it going.
He said, quote, "For me, making time . . . and communication. Everyone talks about communication, but like being super clear, super upfront. We just kind of promised to each other that we're gonna make time and commit to being with each other."
They tried to pin him down on the marriage thing, but he wouldn't have it. Quote, "I think everybody kind of has their own schedule. Rush is never a good word for anything, but I know my heart's happy, and I hope she's as happy as I am."
One more thing: Hunter's been doing a lot of work with Warrior Canine Connection. It's an organization that helps match "unique healing quality of dogs" with service members dealing with combat stress. He says, quote, "They deserve our support."
