"Marry Me": Why Thomas Rhett’s new single is the polar opposite of his smash "Die a Happy Man"

ABC/Image Group LA Thomas Rhett says his new single, “Marry Me,” represents a kind of worst-case scenario for him.

“It’s my big ‘what if’ song,” he says of the third single from Life Changes. “I wrote it from the perspective of if I had never told my wife how I felt about her all those years ago. I probably would have been sitting at her wedding watching her marry someone else."

"Thankfully I DID tell her how I felt -- it makes for a great song concept that so many people can relate to.”

Most country fans know how TR and wife Lauren’s love story worked out. Just this October, they celebrated their fifth anniversary, during a year that saw them adopt their daughter Willa from a Ugandan orphanage and welcome their first biological child, Ada.

Thomas Rhett also wrote his smash “Die a Happy Man” based on his real-life relationship with Lauren.
