Thomas Rhett Named Country Artist of the Year at 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Soundslikenashville.com — Thomas Rhett is no doubt becoming one of country music’s biggest superstars and his status among the elite was confirmed when he was named Country Artist of the Year for the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Beating out Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Sam Hunt, the “Marry Me” singer couldn’t believe he’d been named the winner.

“Wow, Country Artist of the Year. That is… that is insane. Thank you guys so much for voting for that and voting me in there because there was so many great country artists out there that also just deserve this completely. So I’m blown away that you have given this to me,” he said in a video acceptance speech.

After thanking the iHeartRadio team and his Valory label family, Rhett went on to thank some other special supporters in his life.

“Thank you so much to the fans, who come out to the shows and support us day in, day out,” he continued. “To my wife, who helps me pick these songs that go on the records and tells me when I’m doing something dumb in a show and I can fix it on the next one. Thank you to the Lord for allowing me to do this crazy career and this life. It’s been a real honor. Thank you guys so much. This is really cool.”

Rhett is also vying for Country Song of the Year with his smash, “Unforgettable.”

Fans tuning in to the awards show broadcast may not get a performance from the 2018 Country Artist of the Year, but they will get to see Ed Sheeran, Cardi B, Maroon 5, Camila Cabello, Charlie Puth, Eminem, G-Eazy, Kehlani, and N.E.R.D. take the stage. Diddy, Bebe Rexha, Laverne Cox, Method Man, Halsey, and more are expected to present.

The 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards will take place on Sunday, March 11 at the “Fabulous” Forum in Los Angeles. The event will simulcast live across multiple platforms: TBS, TNT and truTV at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT; on iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide; the iHeartRadio app; and on the truTV, TNT & TBS Apps.

Thomas Rhett solves the mystery of the “Marry Me” video

KWBE.com — For his latest smash, Thomas Rhett took a “what if” moment and turned it into “Marry Me,” imagining what could’ve happened if he’d never pursued the woman who eventually became his wife.

“Everybody has those turning points in their life,” he explains, “where you have these moments where you can either go left or go right. And if you go left, then you never know what would’ve been in that right direction.”

“So this song was written out of a space of like, if I had never told Lauren how I’d felt about her, then more than likely I would’ve been invited to that wedding of her marrying somebody else.”

The “Marry Me” video plays out like a mini-movie, with the main character regretting he never made a romantic move toward the woman he loves.

“I probably wouldn’t have been as sad as the guy in the video,” Thomas admits, “but it probably would’ve still wrecked me. I think when you fall in love with somebody at a young age, that kind of thing still sort of lingers with you for a long time.”

The video ends with a cliffhanger, as the potential bride goes to the lovesick protagonist, but it’s unclear whether she’s gone through with her wedding or not. So how does Thomas Rhett believe things turned out?

“At the end, I wanted to really just rein in that Nicholas Sparks moment…” he says, “and really give the viewers a positive ending. So I think she left the wedding and came, and now they’re together, wherever they are — living in the Virgin Islands somewhere.”

Why Thomas Rhett’s new single “Marry Me” is the polar opposite of his smash “Die a Happy Man”

Thomas Rhett says his new single, “Marry Me,” represents a kind of worst-case scenario for him.

“It’s my big ‘what if’ song,” he says of the third single from Life Changes . “I wrote it from the perspective of if I had never told my wife how I felt about her all those years ago. I probably would have been sitting at her wedding watching her marry someone else.”

“Thankfully I DID tell her how I felt — it makes for a great song concept that so many people can relate to.”

Most country fans know how TR and wife Lauren ’s love story worked out. Just this October, they celebrated their fifth anniversary, during a year that saw them adopt their daughter Willa from a Ugandan orphanage and welcome their first biological child, Ada .

Thomas Rhett also wrote his smash “Die a Happy Man” based on his real-life relationship with Lauren.

Thomas Rhett Gushes Over the ‘Sweetest Thing’ Daughter Willa Gray Does When He’s on the Radio

Thomas Rhett isn’t like a regular dad — he’s a cool dad.

The 27-year-old country star and wife Lauren welcomed two baby girls amid a banner year for his career. Rhett’s been busy on his headlining Home Team tour since March and just last week became the first country act this year to top the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.

“I was really surprised,” Rhett tells ET. “I think as an artist, anytime you put a record out, you’re just like, ‘I hope people like it.’ And so when you see your record go No. 1 and stay there for an entire week, that was just a huge feat for me and the team. I’m just so happy for the writers and the people that played on the record because we put a lot of hard work into this record.”

When it comes to picking favorites, Rhett says that wife Lauren is a fan of “Sweetheart,” while 1-year-old Willa Gray gravitates towards the EDM-flavored “Leave Right Now.”

Rhett also couldn’t help but gush over the adorable thing that Willa Gray does when she hears dad’s singles on the radio.

“Whenever she hears ‘Craving You’ or ‘Unforgettable,’ she says ‘Daddy! Daddy!’ It’s the sweetest thing in the world,” Rhett beamed.

ET caught up with Rhett at his fashion pop-up shop in Los Angeles, featuring collaborations with Daniel Patrick, MadeWorn, New Era caps and his personal stylist, Kemal Harris. While he hasn’t yet ventured into baby and toddler fashion — “We should have made a onesie!” he laughed — he did open up about how much fun he’s had teaching his eldest daughter about fashion and how he’s balancing parenthood with a demanding career.

Inside Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins’ Sweet – with ‘Not Too Much Pink’ – Rooms for Daughters Ada and Willa

When country star Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins‘ younger daughter Ada James arrived home from the hospital in August, there was a sweet and sentimental new space ready and waiting for her.

The happy new parents worked hand-in-hand with April Tomlin Interiors to design a “dreamy” nursery for their newborn – and recently gave PEOPLE an exclusive inside look.

“It’s a sweet nursery. Not too much pink – I’m not a pink girl,” Lauren tells PEOPLE, noting that both the carpet and bed in the now-6-week-old’s room include the color blue.

As for 22-month-old daughter Willa Gray‘s room, “[It’s] the same way – I was adamant about not having a giant pink room for my girls,” she adds. “But we love it. She seems to enjoy it so far, so I think it’s working.”

The nursery – photographed by Julie Paisley – includes plenty of special touches, including a framed copy of the photo Lauren and Thomas Rhett used to share their pregnancy news with their families.

In the image, the spouses’ older daughter had a little sign taped to her outfit that read “Big Sister.” Explains Thomas Rhett, 27, “I don’t think Willa Gray knew what was happening!”

“We had limited resources on how we were going to tell our family,” shares Lauren, “so we had this picture framed for everybody and that’s how we told everybody that she was coming into the world. That’s probably the sweetest thing in here, especially to us, because that was such a fun memory – trying to get that picture and then getting to tell everybody.”

Both Ada and Willa’s rooms are packed with reading material (“We’ve got every single Dr. Seuss book on the planet,” jokes Thomas Rhett), while the former also has a closet stocked with newborn-sized dresses, saved over the years by Lauren’s grandmother.

Willa – whom the couple adopted from Uganda in May – also has African animals and beads featured in her room’s artwork. Says Lauren, “Africa, obviously, is a huge part of our lives and my heart and mission, so I think that’s probably heavier in her room.”

The pair can’t keep Willa Gray out of her sister’s room, though – specifically, the infant’s crib.

“She wants to get in the crib all day long,” says Lauren. “She wants to lay down and take naps with Ada, which she’s not really allowed to do. But she tries. She loves getting in the crib.”

Video: Thomas Rhett Dives Into ‘Life Changes’ & Tells Stories Behind the Songs at iHeartRadio Album Release Party

Billboard recounts the biggest takeaways from Rhett’s album release event.

billboard.com — Thomas Rhett held nothing back on his latest LP Life Changes — as indicated by the set’s weighty title. And while it’s hardly the first time he’s approached personal subject matter — “Die A Happy Man,” the country smash from 2015’s Tangled Up, was penned about his wife Lauren — he admits this is the most no-holds-barred he’s been on a record.

“I was really just trying to have hits, you know? Make a name,” Rhett told Billboard of his previous work at his iHeartRadio Album Release Party. “But looking back, never in a million years would I have thought that people would want to hear my personal stories in a song. But I’ve learned that my fans truly love a story, and they love an honest story — and that’s what I tried to do on this record. Every song that I wrote, if it wasn’t personal, I’ve at least experienced it in some form.”

Rhett sings of just about every stage of his life on his third effort, from being a frustrated 18 year old who just wants to be 21, to being a dad to two kids under the age of 2. With so much personal accounting over the course of one 14-track album, Rhett hopes his latest record takes fans on a journey: “I want them to feel like they knew me when they were 16 and we were in high school together.”

After Rhett sat down with Billboard at his album release event, he joined the four producers of Life Changes (Julian Bunetta, Joe London, Jesse Frasure and Dan Huff) on the iHeartRadio Theater stage in New York City to detail how a handful of the songs came together. Take a look at some of the best takeaways below.

He wrote 50-60 songs for this album and had a really tough time narrowing them down. “It’s like having 17 kids and telling five of them you can’t come on the family trip,” Rhett said — to which event host Bobby Bones replied, “What a terrible analogy!”

He was supposed to help co-write “Craving You,” but had a sinus infection — and in fact, didn’t like the song at first. “I told him to listen to it more and more,” Bunetta recalled. “I said, ‘Here’s maybe an angle you’re not seeing that you would really thrive in.'” Once Rhett was on board, “I gave TR a ton of chances to put his mark on the song,” Bunetta said. Rhett responded with a smile, “I’m a stand-up guy so I didn’t take any of the credit.”

The sweetly specific lines about Mang-o-Ritas and the 14th of October in “Unforgettable” were actually made up. “We just randomly picked those,” Rhett explained, adding with a laugh, “I do love Mang-o-Ritas though, they’re great.”

He almost didn’t marry Lauren. Rhett said that after the track listing for Life Changes came out, lots of fans were saying they’d want to use his song “Marry Me” for their wedding. “That’s the song you [definitely don’t] want to play at a wedding,” Rhett laughed. “That was basically my ‘What if’ song — there was a time [Lauren and I] dated and broke up forever and almost married other people… That’s a very morbid thing to write about, but it’s one of my favorite songs on the record, I’m such a sucker for a sad song.” Continue reading
