Thomas Rhett: What Could Have Been

Thomas Rhett's latest number-one hit, "Marry Me," is a case of art imitating life.

Before they were married, Thomas and his wife Lauren had an on-again, off-again relationship. They were both seriously dating other people, but Thomas still was carrying a torch for Lauren. At the encouragement of her father, Thomas told her how he felt.

"You have these moments when you can either go left or go right. And if you go left you never know what would have been in that right direction. This song was written out of a space if I had never told Lauren how I felt about her, then more than likely I would have been invited to that wedding of her marrying somebody else."

"Marry Me" is Thomas's 10th number-one single.
