Thomas Rhett tells CMT that he and his wife want more kids. ”I think Lauren and I were really honest with each other and were like, ‘Let’s take a pause for four or five years and kind of get the hang of what this is going to look like’.

Parker McCollum tells Everything Nash that his goal is to be in the Country Music Hall of Fame.  “I hope it takes me until I’m 90 to get there.
