Thomas Rhett is well on his way to being one of the biggest stars in the Country format with hit songs, sold out shows, and lots of awards and nominations. Thomas is thrilled about his success from a professional standpoint, but he tells us that he and his wife Lauren are grateful for the opportunity to use his success for much bigger things. [“Using my platform for things other than just singing, I think is why I’m here in the first place. I mean obviously, we’ve got to get out there on stage and do what we do, and, and, write songs and entertain people. But I do think there is a way bigger calling and reason that I am in the place that I am, and same with my wife.”] SOUNDCUE (:13 OC: . . . with my wife.)
One example of Thomas and his wife Lauren using their platform for greater good is a recent partnership she formed with DIFF Eyewear. The company that believes in making a difference with their sunglasses allowed Lauren to design a line of sunglasses, which just went on sale and are selling out quickly, and in return, the company is donating $100,000 to one of Thomas and Lauren’s favorite charities, 147 Million Orphans.
