Thomas Rhett: Dating His Wife In High School Was ‘So Ridiculous’
Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren, have been married for over ten years. The couple, with their four daughters in tow, is the picture of pure happiness. They often post about their love for each other on social media and always share updates on their daughters: Willa Gray, 7; Ada James, 5; Lennon Love, 3; and Lillie Carolina, 1.
It’s well known that Thomas and Lauren have known each other since the second grade and have been dating off and on since they were teenagers. I’ve chatted with Thomas many times about the love of his life, Lauren, and he has told me many things over the years. The couple broke up many times before they were married in 2012, the same year Rhett started to make a name for himself in country music.
A few years back, when Thomas was enjoying the success of his break-up song “Crash and Burn” (written by Chris Stapleton), he told me about the couple’s early ups and downs: “Oh, my wife, we dated in high school a little bit. When we dated in high school, it was so ridiculous. I think she broke up with me like maybe seven times over the course of a year.”
He added, “We were like freshmen in high school, and I was just one of those guys that kept goin’ back, and just kept goin’ back, and really just wanted to date her and me not getting the hint. So, I definitely crashed and burned with my wife, and now we are alive and well, which is good.”
Thomas is busy on the road this summer as his “Home Team Tour” continues to sell out shows across the country, with recent capacity crowds in Peoria, Albany, Buffalo, Wilkes-Barre, Boston, Grand Rapids, Lafayette, Belmont Park, St. Paul, Chicago, and more.
