Country Music’s 8 Cutest Bromances
Country artists often refer to their genre as a ‘family’ because it’s so small with few successful mainstream artists, so they all become extremely close knit. Many of the artists end up getting to know one another really well after either touring together, partying at award shows, or even writing songs together. A few of these friendships even started back before they were famous! Turns out Nashville is a small world. These friendships are so close that have most certainly developed into what we deem a “bromance.” These country crooners are constantly pulling pranks on one another, cracking jokes at each other’s expense and just overall getting up to no good. This list takes a look at 8 of the best country music bromances:
8. Randy Houser and Dierks Bentley / Randy Houser and Tyler Hubbard
Randy Houser and Dierks Bentley have both been playing country music for quite a while and as a result have become pretty close friends. But an even newer addition to Randy’s group of friends is Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard. Not many people knew just how close these guys were until a few days ago when pictures emerged of Randy Houser’s wedding in Nashville from back in May when he tied the knot with now-wife, Tatiana Starzynski. Being in someone’s wedding party is the biggest honor for a friendship and true solidification of a bromance and standing by Randy’s side as he exchanged nuptials were Dierks Bentley and Tyler Hubbard! When asked about his wedding and some of the country star sightings, Randy said “They’re all like brothers to me.” Tyler Hubbard was also spotted celebrating at Randy’s bachelor party!
7. Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett
Country artist veteran Luke Bryan took Thomas Rhett under his wing when he started making music — so much so that Thomas Rhett credits Luke Bryan for giving him that extra push to propose to his now wife, Lauren Gregory! Thomas’s father is singer-songerwriter Rhett Atkins; he said everybody was telling Thomas not to get tied down at such a young age, but it was Luke who told him to go for what you want. “Everybody told him no, this is not what he should do — except Luke. He called Luke three or four times and Luke was like, ‘Buddy, if you’re in love and you want to get married, then do it.’ I think Luke was a huge part of Thomas Rhett going, ‘Hey, I can do this.'” Luke Bryan has definitely been Thomas Rhett’s confidant throughout his recent success. Rhett told CMT that he confided in Luke Bryan before he released his album as well, “I was actually talking to Luke on the phone the other day. And Luke was like, ‘Man, did you have a good time in the studio recording it?…Did you have a good time playing them live?…Do most people love it?” When Rhett answered yes to all his questions, Bryan said, “Well, then, what are you worried about?” Sounds like Rhett’s got a good thing going with Luke Bryan as his mentor in the music biz!
