Thomas Rhett‘s latest single, “Marry Me,” isn’t the happy wedding song one might expect from the tune’s title. In fact, it’s a story about the heartbreak a person goes through when someone they love chooses to marry someone else.
For a North Carolina pre-schooler the song elicited some strong emotions as he was heartbroken for the song’s singer. A video filmed by 4-year old Ryder’s mom and posted to Facebook shows his compassionate reaction to “Marry Me.”
“I want to be his best friend,” Ryder tells his mom. “Because he’s sad….because the girl’s getting married.”
Be prepared to fall in love with tender-hearted Ryder when you watch the video below.
Perhaps Ryder should watch the official video for “Marry Me” so he can see that the story doesn’t quite end like he might expect! Check it out for yourself below.
