One of the best parts about being a country music fan is the relationship artists have with us as fans. They’re honest, transparent, and give us a peek inside their life. Thomas Rhett’s wife, Lauren, has even branded it “The Real Reel” to show people that they’re just regular folks. The music is great but there is truly a special bond created between artist and fan.
If you don’t follow your favorite artists and especially their spouses on social media, you’re really missing out on getting to know them a bit better. Here’s the best of what we saw from this past week on “The Gram.”
In case you didn’t know, Lauren Akins (Thomas Rhett’s wife), Kailey Dickerson (Russell Dickerson’s wife), and Hayley Hubbard (FGL’s Tyler Hubbard’s wife) are all close friends. They had a pool day with Lauren’s daughter’s Willa Gray and Ada James, as well as Hayley’s daughter Olivia. Talk about adorable.
Kip Moore was playing some shows in Montana and put out a video saying that him and his band were looking for a home cooked meal and they’d even play some songs around the bonfire as a trade. Can you imagine having Kip Moore show up to your door ready for a home cooked meal? So cool.
Jake Owen is the like the rest of us. He couldn’t avoid getting iced by fans at a festival.
