As we near the end of 2016, it’s only fitting that One Country shares a few of those classic, end of the year lists. Like you, we are kind of bored with the typical end of the year lists, so we’re putting our own spin on a few!

Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins have a wonderful relationship.

From social media to Thomas’ music, their marriage is showcased and coveted. If it had only been that Thomas penned “Die a Happy Man” about his bride that would be enough to write this article. (Oh, and their frolicking in this video, too.)

And, of course, there’s his current single, “Star of the Show,” and (again) its subsequent video that showcase how he feels about his Mrs.

“I think it’s just amazing,” he says about how his wife is a role model for young girls. “How that song kind of lines up to our life today just because I may be the singer-songwriter, kind of the guy on the stage in the spotlight, but she is one of those people that continues to drive my career forward, and one of those people that my fans just to continue to love. And you know a lot of girls look up to her and it’s just been amazing to watch Lauren kind of be in this role and use her platform for amazing things and I just couldn’t be more excited to be where we’re at in our career right now.”

In short, they love and respect each other and they are not afraid to show it. Thomas and Lauren are everything we dream of when we think of the perfect couple. Not that perfect couples exist, but the couple of the year does exist.

They’re super precious when they go on vacation.
