Rhett emphasized that the events is not “unattainable” but requires some “work.”

“Please don’t look at our relationship like it is something that is like unattainable because it completely is,” Rhett said. “It just takes work. Those songs portray the work we put in. As challenging as it may be to like uphold that like ‘we’re perfect couple,’ I think over the last couple years just embraced that we’re just not.”

“Being able to speak openly about the issues we’ve had in our marriage, how hard parenting is and trying to relate to other parents and married couples out there. That’s been very life-giving for us for sure.”

Akins previously shared Rhett’s sentiment while promoting her memoir in 2020.

“It’s so easy to look at our family and our marriage from the outside looking in and just see what looks to be a perfect, happy family, but it’s just not realistic,” she told E! News at the time.

It inspired her to “share the struggles getting there or the struggles we still have now, and just to be real and open with people so that they don’t look at us and be like, ‘Oh they have it all together, they’re so perfect,’ because that couldn’t be further from the truth.”

Akins further explained she feels “pressure” when people refer to her relationship with Rhett as “couple goals.”

“I do feel the pressure when people pin us as that couple because it’s just not true,” she told the outlet. “We don’t have a perfect marriage. I love our marriage and I love being married to him.”

“We have a really, really sweet life together, but we fight just like every other couple does. We have struggles just like every other couple does… It’s almost freeing for me to be able to share that side of things so people can see that having a healthy relationship is extremely attainable, it’s just not going to look just like everybody else’s.”
