There’s a lot to love about Thomas Rhett, no doubt. Let me count a few of the ways…

As Thomas gets ready to perform on The Today Show, today, his Instagrams and Tweets reflect what his new life is like now. Take a look at this from early this morning:

That’s the current state of pre-gaming in the Akins (his last name) household. Then there’s this, from the crack of dawn today:

We fell in love with Thomas Rhett, as a bachelor, as he professed his love for Lauren, his childhood sweetheart. Then, in marriage the music started coming…reflecting his deep appreciation and affection for his wife. How can you not love a man, who feels that deeply and expresses it so creatively. He and his songwriter dad, Rhett Akins, are thick as thieves, and often collaborate. Yup, this is a family man, who happens to be super cool. He’s still young, hip and more relevant than ever, having recently taken home Song of the Year honors at the ACM Awards. Of course he credited Lauren for the win!

Gotta say, this one put me over the edge on Mother’s Day:

He has a sense of humor, and that is more endearing than dimples
