Country Newcomer Thomas Rhett Weds Childhood Crush

Thomas Rhett is officially off the market! The “Beer With Jesus” singer wed Lauren Gregory on Friday (Oct. 12).

The couple has known each other since the first grade, “but I don’t think she really noticed me ’til we were 16,” the groom admits to Pittsburgh radio station Y108.

Rhett popped the question last December inside a private room at Gregory’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.”

The son of acclaimed singer-songwriter Rhett Akins, Rhett released a five-song EP on Aug. 28, hitting No. 1 on iTunes’ country albums chart that very same day. The project’s first single, “Something to Do With My Hands,” reached the Top 15, with its powerful follow-up, “Beer With Jesus,” now climbing the charts. The musician’s first full-length album is expected early next year.

Congrats to the happy couple!
