Country music star Brett Young popped the question to longtime love, Taylor Mills, a few months back and the couple announced their engagement to the public in February. Although they have been through thick and thin together over the last decade, Young is looking to fellow country music entertainer Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins for guidance on successfully blending his red-hot career with marriage.
“We’re learning a lot from them,” Young shared with The Boot about observing Thomas and Lauren’s relationship while on the Georgia native’s 2018 Life Changes Tour. The “Mercy” singer-songwriter hasn’t directly asked for marriage advice from the famous couple, but he sees how Rhett balances his work with the needs of his wife and two young daughters, Willa Gray and Ada James. “[Lauren’s] out there with the kids all the time, so we get to know them and watch them as a family.”
“It’d be really easy to see the way they come across on social media and think that’s a facade, but it’s not. It’s real,” Young added. “Getting to watch it and be around it, not only do [we] have something to learn from, but it’s really motivating and encouraging about what we have in store for our future.”
Brett and Taylor are certainly surrounded by people within the Nashville community who can show them how to make a country music career and a healthy marriage co-exist— Dierks Bentley and Cassidy Black Bentley, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Lee Brice and Sara Reeveley Brice, Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher, Luke Bryan and Caroline Boyer Bryan, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Chris Stapleton and Morgane Stapleton— just to name a few.
We wish this couple the best as they plan their wedding and enjoy celebrating their upcoming nuptials!
