We know Thomas Rhett loves writing songs about his wife.. This particular song “Star of the Show” was written a month after Rhett and his wife Lauren got married (Awe). And now he tells us about how his dad was a huge help with the song… “This song is special for a lot of reasons. One, I think I wrote this song about a month after I got married. I wrote it with my dad and a guy named Ben Hayslip. I was actually out with my dad this past weekend writing and he actually showed me this old notebook that has been water damaged for five years and he actually has the day that we wrote the song. I think he might be the only person that still actually physically writes lyrics out (on paper).”
