Thomas Rhett Talks About New Single
Based on the title alone, you would think that Thomas Rhett’s latest single, “Marry Me,” is a sweet, romantic love song and it’s anything but. While it doesn’t pertain to his life with wife, Lauren, Thomas tells us it easily could have been his story.
“’Marry Me’ I think is going to be the song on the record that so many people are going to be like, ‘What is this?’ like, ‘Why would he even talk about this?’ But what I think is really cool about this song is that it really does pertain to mine and Lauren’s story because before we got married, I dated a girl for like five years that I thought I was going to marry. She dated a guy like five years that she thought she was going to marry. And that song is basically about me being the narrator and being like, ‘What would my life have been like if I had never gone over to her house and told her how I felt about her?’ So this song is kind of a make-believe story about me basically being invited to her wedding, and never getting the chance to tell her how I felt about her for so long, which I just thought was an interesting way to kind of write a sad song. Because it could have been my life very easily.”
The video for “Marry Me,” which was just released two and a half weeks ago, has already been viewed over 16 million times.
