Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren, have known each other since grade school, and they got married in October of 2012, but thinking back to when he first knew he wanted to marry Lauren, he says, “In my head, I was about 13 – I think I said it at church camp one time and got rejected. But, probably not until I was about 21 or 22 years old did it really sink in, and I knew from that moment that I was going to marry [her]. She didn’t know for a long time, but I did in my head, and it was really cool.”
Thomas has chronicled parts of his and Lauren’s relationship in several of his songs, including his latest #1 song, “Sixteen.” The next song Rhett releases will be brand new music off his fourth studio album, which he will release later this year.
