The newlyweds – who tied the knot at their Georgia home this summer – stepped out for the BMI Awards in Nashville Tuesday night, where Alicia, a schoolteacher, opened up about the sweetest thing her husband does.
“He leaves me notes a lot, which I love,” she told PEOPLE of her country star husband. “Recently, he sent me a text and asked me to go on a date with him, which was super sweet.”
The “Bottoms Up” singer is getting back to touring, but, “I don’t mind leaving, as long as she’s with me,” Gilbert, 30, says of hitting the road again.
