Why RaeLynn Is OK with Husband’s Decision

How She Made Peace with It

RaeLynn might be a little bummed that her brand new husband Josh Davis isn’t home. But then she remembers why, and everything is fine.

“How can you get upset at something that’s so honorable? Serving your country is the most selfless, amazing thing you could ever do,” she told CMT.com of Davis’ decision to enlist in the military.

Although RaeLynn said that he didn’t tell her about it until just before the wedding.

“I was like, ‘Well, that’s a great time to drop a bomb like that.’ But anyway, it was right about the time we were about to get married and he was telling me that it was on his heart to do,” she recalled.

After pushing for a specific contract in the military, Davis thought that if he were to get it, he’d know that God wanted him to do it.

But when RaeLynn said her prayers, she wasn’t sure exactly what she was praying for. For him to go, or for him to stay.

“We were praying about it,” she said, “and my selfish part of me was like, ‘I don’t want you to go. I want you to be with me.’

“But I honestly, I had a peace about it. I didn’t want to tell him that I had a peace about it, but I did. And at the end of the day, it’s his dream to do this, and he got the contract that he wanted. It was his dream. And he supports me in everything that I do and lets me go on the road. At the end of the day, I’m doing what I love.

“Knowing that he’s doing what he loves,” she said, “is awesome.”
