Thomas Rhett has serious respect and gratitude for our military.

When asked about Memorial Day and those who serve, Thomas told us, “It’s just complete and utter selflessness to me. A lot of my really good friends in life have served, are serving, and sometimes when I do get to sit down with them, I’m like, ‘How do you do it?’ Especially my buddy Mike, who I’ve known for a long time, who served for a long time. The complete and utter selflessness it takes to put yourself at risk to keep the freedom of this country alive it’s just somethin’ me and Lauren talk about a lot, just like how much respect we have in our hearts for people that sign up to do that.”

He continued, “It’s somethin’ we don’t take lightly too, and we’re in constant prayer for not only the people that are serving overseas but also the families, cause it’s a different kind of leaving. Me and Lauren were talking about that the other day. You know, I get sad when I go leave Thursday through Sunday to go on the road, and I can’t imagine what it would be like to say, I’ll see you in six months. And so, our hearts are so proud but also very heavy for them and their families, and just so much respect.”
