Thomas Rhett Gets a Little Help From His Wife on ‘Saturday Night Live’
When Thomas Rhett made his debut on Saturday Night Live March 2, he not only performed a song written about his wife, Lauren (his new single "Look What God Gave Her"), he also enlisted her to help him out with the performance.
As the singer charmingly alluded on social media, Lauren was right there with him in New York City, and apparently was tasked with the important job of holding his cue card—as evidenced by the photo he shared on Instagram. The young pair are one of country music's most beloved and tight-knit couples, and the photo was met with many adoring comments from fans.
Rhett, who belied any nervousness at taking the famed stage for the first time, was introduced by SNL's host for the evening John Mulaney, and treated the audience to a rendition of both the single and a brand-new song, "Don't Threaten Me With a Good Time."
Rhett's upcoming fourth studio album, Center Point Road, is set for release on May 31. He'll head out on the road that same month for his U.S. 2019 Very Hot Summer Tour, kicking off May 17 and featuring special guests Rhett Akins (aka his dad!), Dustin Lynch and Russell Dickerson. It's probably a safe bet his cue-card-rockin' better half, along with their two young daughters, will be accompanying him on at least some of the dates. The tour will run through October.
