Lauren Akins, wife to country music star, Thomas Rhett, will hit the road this summer for a tour of her own. She'll make her way to nine different cities around the country to promote her new memoir, Live In Love: Growing Together Through Life's Changes.
The deeply personal memoir offers guidance for anyone looking to keep romance alive, balance children and marriage, express true faith, and live a life of purpose. Lauren shares details about her childhood friendship with Rhett, explaining how they reconnected as young adults, even sharing their handwritten wedding vows. She'll open up about the challenges she's faced being married to a country music star who's life is always in the limelight and how she's had to find her own footing through it all.
Additionally, Akins will share life-changing experiences she's had through mission work in Haiti and later Uganda, where she met the baby who would later become their first daughter, Willa Gray. She'll open up about the challenges faced through parenting Willa Gray and her little sisters, Ada James and the new born, Lennon Love.
"I’m excited but of course a little anxious because I think sharing a detailed window into someone’s personal life with people you’ve never met would make anybody a little nervous," Akins previously said. "But I hope y’all enjoy it, or at least laugh a little, or feel more confident in your faith (or find your faith) or feel related to as a mom or a wife or just as a person."
She adds, "No matter who you are: none of us are perfect, we’re all the same at the heart and we all need a little love/help/friend/community as we navigate this life. And I hope this book becomes whatever you need in the moment and I hope you feel loved through it."
The 9-city tour will launch in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, May 2. Tickets to the tour are on sale now. For more information visit LaurenAkins.com.
