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."
What an awesome day. Got to spend some time with the folks from HEARTGARD® Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) and @WarriorCanineConnection at VA NY Harbor Healthcare System talking to and thanking our nation's Veterans for their service and talking to them about canine-assisted therapy. Now through June 30, you can nominate a deserving U.S. Service Member or Veteran to win an all-expense-paid trip to Nashville and a year's supply of HEARTGARD Plus for their dog! To make your nomination on Instagram, just use the hashtags #NominateAVeteran and #Sweepstakes. Click the link in my bio to learn more. #ad
