Thomas Rhett Planning To Wed This Month
Thomas Rhett will soon be a married man. The singer tells TasteOfCountry.com he and fiancee Lauren Gregory intend to tie the knot sometime this month. Thomas says he and his bride-to-be have known each other most of their lives, and met when they were in the first grade. He admits they dated for several months while in high school, but "it didn't work out." However, Rhett says they've remained "best friends" over the years, and when he learned Lauren's last relationship had come to an end he "moved in for the kill." He says they dated for about six months before he popped the question last December. The couple plans to hold their wedding at a venue in the Nashville area.
Thomas adds that he found a special way to propose -- he did it over dinner with both their families present. He explains that he and Lauren are "big on drinking wine and signing the bottles with a silver sharpie," which they put on display in their home. But Rhett recalls that for this particular occasion instead of signing his name to their wine bottle, he wrote "marry me," and showed Lauren the bottle as her mom hit "play" on Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight." Rhett says the moment "was pretty awesome."
