Thomas Rhett married a girl he'd known since grade school. Lauren Gregory agreed to wed the 'Something to Do With My Hands' singer (real name Thomas Akins) after a very romantic proposal that included an Italian restaurant, Frank Sinatra and a bottle of good wine. They were hitched in October 2012, and walked the red carpet together at the 2013 ACM Awards.

The singer told Taste of Country that the couple dated for six months once when they were 15 -- and it didn't work. They remained friends however, and went through a number of relationships separately. "When I heard that she had ended her other relationship, I moved in for the kill," the singer shares. "We kissed, and that was it. We dated for probably six months, and we got engaged last December, around Christmas time.” His wife is a natural beauty with a vibrant smile and great red carpet style.
