The inspiring love story of country star Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren Akins, will be revealed in a new book co-written by Akins — along with behind the scenes details of her family’s world and her quest to give back.

Arriving March 5 from Ballantine Books, LIVE IN LOVE: Growing Together Through Life’s Changes sets up as a deeply-personal memoir that “offers inspiring guidance for anyone looking to keep romance alive, balance children and marriage, express true faith, and live a life of purpose.”

Working with writer Mark Dagostino, Akins shares stories from her and Rhett’s childhood friendship, how they reconnected and fell in love as adults and much more, including the challenges of being married to a superstar and how she has found her own identity alongside Rhett’s fame. The book also recounts some of Akins’ charity work for Love One International, including the “life-changing experiences doing mission work in Haiti, and then in Uganda, where she met the precious baby who would become their first daughter.”

To promote the memoir, Akins will also embark on a national 9-city book tour starting May 2, offering readings, book signings and VIP experiences through through May 16. Tickets and VIP packages are on-sale now with each ticket including a copy of the book, and the famous couple just welcomed the birth of their third daughter, Lennon, on February 10.
