Being married almost a year now there's certain things you have run past your wife or significant other before doing. Thomas Rhett makes sure he runs new songs by his wife first. Quote, "She's the ultimate gauge. If she didn't like a song, it means that 70% of the female population is not going to like it, which is a big percentage, so I'm always playing her songs."
He also goes on to say that Lauren goes by "feeling" when she hears a song, and that feeling is always right. She can tell within 15 seconds if the song is worth his time.
