Thomas Rhett is on the road playing shows all year long, so you may be surprised to learn he's got even more travel planned for the upcoming holiday season. Thomas and his wife, Lauren, are planning a European vacation around the New Year since they're young and childless.

Thomas tells ABC News Radio, "We'll probably have a child in the next five years or something, so everybody says to go and do before you have kids."

This trip also marks Lauren's first time out of the country, but she'll have a good tour guide in Thomas. He spent some time in Italy a few years back.

"I think Europe's a really cool place to be and see," Thomas says. "So, we decided to go over there over New Year's and spend 10 or 12 days over there and kind of travel from east to west a little bit and see it. So, it should be fun."

Thomas should be ready for a little rest and relaxation by the time that trip rolls around. He's really busy promoting his debut album, It Goes Like This , due out October 29. The title cut is now climbing towards the top of the country songs chart.
