(October 12, 2012 - Present)
Thomas Rhett met his future wife, Lauren Gregory, all the way back in the first grade when they both lived in Valdosta, Georgia. They were in the same kindergarten class at Goodpasture Christian in Madison and became close friends while in the sixth grade. They both attended church camp together when they were 13-years-old, forming an even closer friendship, and at 15 they briefly dated for six months. But the relationship was short lived and they went back to being best friends. Thomas and Lauren both went on to have several other relationships. “I don’t think she really noticed me ’til we were 16. When I heard that she had ended her other relationship, I moved in for the kill. We kissed, and that was it,” he said.

Thomas popped the question last December inside a private room at Lauren’s favorite Nashville restaurant, Giovanni’s, where he’d enlisted her mom to help stash flowers, candles and one very important prop. “There was a (wine) bottle and with a silver Sharpie I wrote ‘marry me?’ on the bottle, and she wrote ‘Well, duh, yes’ on the bottle,” the singer recalls. “Somebody cued 'The Way You Look Tonight' by Frank Sinatra, and we danced in this little cigar room. It was pretty awesome.”
