Famous country star, Thomas Rhett, is a phenomenal artist. Not only does he write beautiful and fun-filled songs but is praised for another reason, too. Thomas Rhett and his beautiful wife, Lauren are a country-couple that many admire. These two have known each other since the first grade and are undoubtedly relationship goals. Here is just a few reason we envy and adore this relationship all at once.
1. They have beaten the odds.
As I said, these two have known one another since the first grade. These two attended the same church camp as teenagers and briefly dated as 15-year-olds. Thomas Rhett is quotes saying “we remained best friends” although the first attempt of this relationship did not work out. According to Country Living, these two eventually got into serious relationships and almost married other people. Once Lauren Gregory (now Atkins) broke up with her former boyfriend, Rhett “moved in for the kill.” They dated for six months before he popped the question.
2. The proposal was perfect.
Heavy reported on Thomas Rhett’s proposal to Lauren Gregory, and if it doesn’t melt your heart nothing will. He didn’t rent a baseball stadium, fly her to Paris, or kneel down on one knee on a mountain or the beach. Nope, he kept it simply. He took her to her favorite Tennessee restaurant and wrote “Marry me?” in silver sharpie as someone cued “The Way You Look Tonight.” Now, drinking wine and signing the bottles with the date is a tradition in their household. These two married in 2012. HOW CUTE!!!
3. They are both dog people.
These two are both canine lovers and what more could we want? They even take them on the road, throw the birthday parties, even took their two doggies out to potty before the CMT’s.
4. They are both down-to-earth.
Thomas Rhett was quoted saying that “This business can be very consuming for some people, but thank goodness that my wife is there to call me out every time, so my head shrinks a little bit.” Relationships in the music and film industry are broadcasted quite publicly, so I would imagine having a wife outside the industry is quite helpful.
5. Their love for one another is evident.
If Thomas Rhett’s song “Die a Happy Man” is not evidence enough that these two are madly in love, I don’t know what is. Lauren told him when she first heard the song that it was one of the best he has ever written, and she apparently does not always say that. Rhett also sticks to one rule while he is away from his wife: no other women. No women on the tour bus, no women touching him during meet and greets, and refuses to get physical with other women during music videos. According to the Taste of Country, he even went as far to use a body double in the music video for “It Goes Like This.”
Lauren's reaction to Thomas winning the ACM's single of the year last week is another example of their loving relationship.
6. They are too cute not to admire.
Seriously, look that these two.They can pull of both comfy and elegant.
