Thomas Rhett married his wife Lauren earlier this month. Despite being told he was crazy for marrying so young – he’s 22 – and especially when his career is just about to take off, he knew Lauren was ‘The One.’
“I’ve known my beautiful wife, Lauren, since I was in first grade,” he said. “I’ve always loved her, we’ve always been great friends, always been able to talk about anything and they always say to marry your best friend and that was her. The whole saying, ‘when you know you know,’ I didn’t really believe for a long time but when I found Lauren that saying made a lot of sense.”
Thomas sought out family pal Luke Bryan for advice before popping the question, since Luke is married with children and balances his family and time on the road. Thomas asked for his opinion and Luke encouraged him to go for it.
“He said ‘You know, buddy, if you want to get married then just do it,’” Thomas said. ‘There ain’t nobody telling you to stop and if they do then just forget about ‘em.’ That comment really set my goal forward in asking Lauren to marry me, so thank you, Luke.”
Now back from his honeymoon, Thomas will hit the road with Chris Young’s Liquid Neon Tour to close out 2012. His current single, “Beer With Jesus,” is at radio now.
