It looks like Thomas Rhett has finally found something to do with his hands -- he put a ring on it. Rhett married his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Gregory, on Friday (Oct. 12) just outside Nashville.

“We’ve known each other since we were in the first grade,” Rhett told Taste of Country as the couple were planning for their wedding. “We dated once when we were 15, and it didn’t work out. We dated for like six months. We remained best friends even after we broke up. We both dated other people for like five years. When I heard that she had ended her other relationship — this was last spring — I moved in for the kill."

The smitten singer-songwriter adds, "We kissed, and that was it. We dated for probably six months, and we got engaged last December, around Christmas time.”

The couple are currently on their honeymoon in Hawaii.
