“Boots and Hearts has grown into a must-attend festival since its launch in 2012 and we’re thrilled to announce the rest of this year’s artists. Fans come to Burl’s Creek for more than great music – they come for the “Boots Life” that emerges when 40,000 people come together. It’s about a sense of belonging you feel while dancing and singing to your favourite songs with the friends you came with, and the ones you just made,” said Lisa Zechmeister, Director of Booking and Development, Republic Live.

“We’ve worked hard to put together a world class line-up and we are also extremely proud that over half of our talent is comprised of Canadian artists for fans to discover.  We like to be on the cutting edge of those up and coming artists; we know that today’s afternoon slot is tomorrow’s headliner, as we’ve seen with Chris Stapleton who played all four days as well as Sam Hunt (2014),” remarked Eva Dunford, co-founder of Boots and Hearts and Republic Live.

Thomas Rhett Looks Forward to Learning From Kenny Chesney on Trip Around the Sun Tour

Popculture.com — Thomas Rhett will wrap up his headlining Life Changes Tour just in time to serve as the opening act, along with Old Dominion, on Kenny Chesney’s Trip Around the Sun Tour. The 27-year-old says joining Chesney on the road is a dream he’s held on to for most of his adult life.

“Being on a Kenny Chesney tour, I think is a dream that I’ve had since I was 19 years old,” Rhett shared with PopCulture.com at a recent media event. “[Jason] Aldean’s done it, Eric Church has done it, Miranda [Lambert] has done it. Anybody who is somebody has done that tour and there’s a reason for that and it’s because Kenny has perfected the art of learning how to entertain 70,000 people for two hours.”

Rhett joined Chesney for a couple shows at Gillette Stadium last year, which he says was a pivotal moment for his career.

“It really is a terrifying thing to go embark on,” admits Rhett. “Last year playing at Gillette two nights in a row was the first time I’d ever done a stadium, first of all, two nights in a row, and second of all, gotten to even play at dark. I’ve done stadiums before but it’s always been at 5:00, when there’s like 10,000 people in there. It’s really awkward.”

Stil, even in those two days, the “Marry Me” singer says he learned plenty from the country music icon.

“I feel like I got to learn so much even in just those two days of watching how Kenny connects to the person in the front row, and the person in the nose bleeds,” Rhett says. “That’s a very hard thing to do, and so I’m anxious to get out there and obviously do our set, but then just learn so much from Kenny. I think that’s every artist’s dream is to one day headline stadiums.”

In addition to learning about performing, Rhett also learned how to treat people off-stage, a skill Chesney has already mastered.

“He sets up this gigantic space next to his bus where he has a Tiki bar and food trucks and music playing,” Rhett reveals. “Literally, before the show and after the show, I could have walked up to Kenny and said, ‘Hey dude, I have 30 family members here, can [they come in]? Is that cool?’ Yeah, come on. He treats everybody like your their family, and I think that’s what creates such a unique and fun atmosphere with Kenny backstage, and that’s why so many people want to tour with him.

“Just from the camaraderie you get from that tour,” Rhett adds, “and then you also get to learn how to watch somebody play two hours of nothing but the most gigantic songs in the history of Country music. So, it’s pretty awesome.”

Rhett will wrap up his 2018 Life Changes Tour on April 20, and kick off his run with Chesney one day later, on April 21. A list of all of Rhett’s upcoming shows is available on his website.

CMT: Thomas Rhett on His Biggest Fan Ever

CMT: Thomas Rhett on His Biggest Fan Ever

This past Valentine’s Day had CMT feeling nostalgic with all the love in the air and took a moment to look back on some good times.

Like when Thomas Rhett’s high school sweetheart (and yes, his childhood crush) Lauren Gregory told him that he might actually have a career in music, and then she became his wife, Lauren Akins.

CMT.com — “She’s always been my biggest fan,” Rhett said in a recent radio interview, “even I remember going back to high school, just sitting there playing Brad Paisley songs on my acoustic guitar and her being like, ’Man, you kind of have an OK voice. Maybe you should do something with that.’”

Just like the title track from his last album Life Changes says, Rhett had been waiting on Lauren since the 2nd grade. The two married in October 2012. And he’s hopeful that their great ride will last forever.

“It’s crazy how far we’ve come, not only as a married couple but as friends. Our friendship has grown, and she is such a part of my career. My fans love her more than they love me, which is hilarious,” he said. “So it’s just been a great ride with her and hopefully it can continue in this way.”

Russell Dickerson ‘Respects’ Thomas Rhett’s Approach to Touring

Soundslikenashville.com — Russell Dickerson and Thomas Rhett have the kind of bromance that any guy would be jealous of, both on and off the stage.

The two spent a lot of time together last year as they bonded on the road for Rhett’s Home Team Tour. Whenever the pair get together to hang out in Nashville with their wives, it seems like they know how to live it up and make memorable moments with their friend group. But Dickerson also looks up to Rhett in terms of his work ethic, and leans on him for future advice on how to conduct a tour in the right manner.

“I really respect Thomas in a way that he has put a lot of resources into his live show. Like his production, his lighting, his band director, his musical director that he hired, like, he puts it all on the line for his concerts. And so, just to watch and see what little nuances they change here and there, I love watching his show,” Dickerson explained to Sounds Like Nashville during an interview.

Rhett even goes so far to suggest certain companies or businesses to pair with when Dickerson gets to be out there on his own traveling for shows. The recommendations definitely guide the “Yours” singer on the right path, noting how well his pal does in his live performances.

“We talk about it a lot, like what he would do again, what he wouldn’t do again, and just learning from him as he’s spending all of his money to do all that,” the singer joked. “No, I’m just kidding. But, yeah, just to learn from what he loves about this certain company maybe, or like, ‘Don’t use this company because they suck and this or that.’ I’m like, ‘Alright perfect.’ Like that saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars you know. And so, it’s just cool to have that kind of sounding board back and forth.”

Dickerson will hit the road with Rhett for a few shows on the Life Changes Tour during the spring of 2018. More information can be found on Dickerson’s website.

Interview: Thomas Talks with Taylor Magazine

Interview: Thomas Talks with Taylor Magazine

One of the biggest names in country music at the moment, Thomas Rhett is everything: husband, father, country music award-winner and headliner at massive stadiums and arenas around the world. He landed his first No.1 single in 2013 and ever since then, he’s been responsible for the most upbeat, exciting and heartstring-pulling songs for fans to listen to, and fall in love with. Over the years since he first came onto the country music scene, he’s had over eight chart-topping singles, and most recently he’s released his new album, Life Changes.

His newest album captures a whirlwind period of his life, with many new and exciting things happening for him and his family. The album was recorded while Thomas and his wife, Lauren, were in the middle of adopting their daughter Willa Gray from Uganda, and also awaiting the birth of their second child, Ada James. Thomas Rhett’s songwriting skills and soulful vocals showcase a true artist who’s willing to shine a light on his own personal milestones and mistakes through life. We’re big fans of Thomas Rhett’s music and wanted to learn more about his song-writing process, how he handles being on the road and what his proudest career moment is.

Taylor Magazine: To begin with, tell us a little bit about how you got started with music.

Thomas Rhett: Well, I grew up with a dad that sang country music so music has always been a passion and first love of mine since a young age. I’ve always been in bands – I was in a rock band in sixth grade and I did all sorts of bands through high school and college. My dad is a full-time songwriter so I got the opportunity to co-write with him and a bunch of great songwriters so I eventually learnt the craft of doing that. Midway through college, I decided that I didn’t want to do school anymore and instead, I pursued songwriting – I knew I wanted to be a writer forever and as I got going with it, I started going on the road and got addicted to the show life. Looking back, I can’t imagine doing anything different.

Taylor Magazine: When you were younger did you have anything else in mind, in case songwriting didn’t work out?

Thomas Rhett: I don’t remember – I only went to college because all of my friends did. While I was there, I was just searching for a passion studying things like business or communication. Music was all that I had, and paired with a bit of good timing and luck, I started to write songs and that was that!

Taylor Magazine: How old were you when you realised you were going to pursue music and how long did it take from there until you felt like you were on the right path?

Thomas Rhett: I think I was 19 when I first realised I was doing well and then at age 21, I signed a record deal. I don’t really know what my definition of ‘making it’ is, but I think we’re doing ok for ourselves now! I would say after the song ‘Die A Happy Man’, it definitely felt like we were on a path upwards.

Taylor Magazine: What was the most memorable concert you went to where you remember being inspired by the artist?

Thomas Rhett: My dad definitely had a lot to do with my inspiration, but my first concert was The Rolling Stones. To this day, they’re still my favourite band. I think Mick Jagger has had a lot of influence in the way that I move around stage. This is also such a random concert that I got inspired by because I was around seven years old, but it was this band called The Darkness. They were in Nashville and at that time, they were my favourite band (I was such a rock n’ roll kid) and I remember being really inspired by them.

Taylor Magazine: Talk to us a bit about your songwriting process – how do you deal with writer’s block if you ever get it?

Thomas Rhett: I get it… a lot! I’m a big fan of co-writing. I’ve written a few songs by myself, but I don’t trust myself to finish one all the way through. I like validation, which is why I co-write so much because if my brain isn’t fully on then hopefully the other person’s is! If I don’t have an idea, hopefully someone else does. That’s why co-writing is so special – you can sit and hang out for an hour and suddenly someone will say something that becomes the title, or at least the idea.

Taylor Magazine: When you sit down to write a song, where do you draw your inspiration from?

Thomas Rhett: It used to be from watching fans, meeting people and experiencing new cities and towns or I would just refer back to high school. Love in general – I’ve been married for five years – so I try to write about what I know about or what I have experienced myself in the past.
