Thomas Rhett & Lauren Akins Now Have 4 Under 6 as Lillie Carolina Arrives

Congrats to Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins as they welcome their daughter Lillie Carolina into the world!

Thomas shared on social media “Lillie Carolina Akins, born November 15th. 7.5 pounds of pure joy. Lauren Akins, you are my hero. Watching a child being born is legit a miracle. 4 under 6 here we go!”

Lillie Carolina joins older sisters Willa Gray, Ada James, and Lennon Love.

It was during a concert back in May of this year, when Thomas shared the news with the crowd that he and Lauren were expecting again.

Thomas recalls “When I was on stage in Fort Worth about to play ‘To The Guys That Date My Girls’ my wife talked to me in my ear monitors and said ‘you can tell them if you want’ so anyways, now you know. We are pumped to be having our 4th girl.”

Thomas also remembers telling his fans, “Feel free to buy all the merch you want, knowing that all the proceeds are going straight to all these weddings I’ll be paying for one day!

Before he had a full house of kids, Thomas shares there was a time when he didn’t think he’d be where he is today, “I remember getting so mad at God when we were trying to have kids and we just couldn’t, and then the Lord blessed us with Willa Gray, and the next thing you know we can’t not get pregnant (laugh)”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
