Thomas Rhett Can’t Wait to Teach Daughter Willa Gray All About Thanksgiving

tasteofcountry.com — Thomas Rhett is gearing up to celebrate his first Thanksgiving with his two daughters, both of whom came home in 2017. While both Willa Gray, 2, and Ada James, 3 months, are too young to understand the meaning of Thanksgiving, Rhett says he’s looking forward to teaching them.

 

“You know, Willa’s a little bit too young to understand a lot of things,” Rhett says via his label, Big Machine Label Group, “So, I think once she gets to the age where she starts to ask questions like, ‘Where am I legitimately from? What kind of holidays do they celebrate in Uganda?’ I would love to start incorporating a ton of her culture into our lifestyle because we’re celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas and Fourth of July. And when she starts asking those questions, I would love for her to start knowing and learning about her culture as well.”

In addition to enjoying Thanksgiving with his new family of four, Rhett has been picked to perform during the halftime show for the Dallas Cowboys vs. the Los Angeles Chargers Thanksgiving game, which kicks off the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.

“Watching the Cowboys game is such a tradition on Thanksgiving Day,” Rhett says in a press release. “It’s all about being together with family and friends, but this year is going to be a little different for us. I’m pumped that we get to pack up the whole family to go to Dallas for the halftime show…it’s going to be blast and helping do it for a good cause makes it even better.”

Tune into CBS on Nov. 23 to watch Rhett perform.

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.

Maren Morris and Thomas Rhett Make Forbes’ “30 Under 30: 2018” List

Maren Morris and Thomas Rhett Make Forbes’ “30 Under 30: 2018” List

“What never grows old? The burning desire of youth to reinvent the world” — so says Forbes, who for seven years now has compiled an annual list of impressive, accomplished, and just plain hustlin’ individuals under the age of 30. The list is customized for a variety of different categories, including music, and it’s that very list that two country artists showed up on.

Maren Morris, 27, was noted by Forbes for her 2015 major label debut, which hit the top of Billboard‘s country albums chart and made it at No. 5 on the all-genre Billboard 200. Also lauded was her Grammy nomination for Best New Artist at this year’s ceremony (she lost to Chance the Rapper).

Thomas Rhett, also 27, was duly noted for his money-making skills — a quarter million dollars per night on the road — as well as the performance of his third album, Life Changes, which debuted in September at the top of the Billboard200 (it was the first country album to do so this year).

Morris and Rhett join such standouts as Paramore’s Hayley Williams, Cardi B, Jackie Evancho, Joe Jonas, Bebe Rexha, and Khalid on the outlet’s music class of 2018. Other categories in the feature spanned everything from sports to science to education.

The two artists collaborated on Rhett’s “Craving You,” which hit No. 1 on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts.

Thomas Rhett Announces Life Changes Tour for 2018

billboard.com — Thomas Rhett is currently on the road through Nov. 29 for his Home Team Tour — his first headlining tour — but announced today (Oct. 30) that he will also bring his fans live shows in 2018. Beginning April 5 in Tulsa, Okla., Rhett will be on his Life Changes Tour 2018 through Oct. 27.

Rhett is bringing Brett Young, Russell Dickerson, Jillian Jacqueline and Carly Pearce at various points on the road with him as supporting acts throughout the tour. Life Changes, Rhett’s latest album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, becoming the first country LP to top the chart in 2017.

“Headlining for the first time has been pretty unreal,” Rhett says in a press release. “It’s wild to me that next year we will be launching our second year of headline shows and are bringing out some of my favorite artists in music right now. I think the fans have come to expect that we’re going to be on our feet and having the time of our lives every single night.”

Rhett had a pretty busy 2017, with his first headlining tour, the official adoption of his two-year-old daughter, Willa Gray, and the birth of his daughter, Ada James, and he is showing no signs of slowing down in 2018.

Tickets for Life Changes Tour 2018 will first go on sale this Friday (Nov. 3) at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster. Pre-sale begins Tuesday (Oct. 31) at 10 a.m. local time via Citi’s Private Pass program. For more information, click here.

Thomas Rhett says CMA Awards Are “Nerve-Wracking”

Thomas Rhett says CMA Awards Are “Nerve-Wracking”

Thomas Rhett won his first CMA Awards trophy in 2016, beating out Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Chris Stapleton and Eric Church to take home Single of the Year, for “Die a Happy Man.” The “Unforgettable” singer, who is nominated in three categories at the 2017 CMA Awards, says his anxiety about the annual event starts long before the actual awards ceremony begins.

“It’s nerve-wracking. It’s really nerve-wracking watching those nominations,” Rhett shared with The Boot and other reporters at a recent media event. “And then, when you actually do get nominated, then all you do is sit there, and you’re like, ‘I’m in the category with him, that means I’m automatically going to lose that award’ … And there are just so many talented people in our genre.”

Still, Rhett says whether he adds another trophy to his shelf after the upcoming CMA Awards or not, he’s definitely already a winner.

“Those awards shows are so fun,” he adds. “And when you do win them, they’re great. But honestly, just to be nominated in those categories is very special as well.”

In addition to his 2017 CMA Awards nominations, Rhett also recently earned an American Music Awards nomination for Favorite Male Artist — Country. He shares the category with Keith Urban and Sam Hunt.
The 2017 CMA Awards are scheduled to air on ABC on Nov. 8, at 8PM ET; the ceremony will take place live at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will host the ceremony for the 10th year in a row.

Thomas Rhett Says “Craving You” Video Inspired Him to Push Himself

theboot.com — Thomas Rhett didn’t hold anything back with the music video for “Craving You,” his duet with Maren Morris. The movie trailer-like video was inspired by Rhett’s desire to show his fans a new, even-more-creative side of himself as an artist.

“It would be unfortunate to make a video like that and then go make something average for the next few,” Rhett shared with The Boot and other reporters at a recent media event. “But, I think, with these songs, it’s really all about finding the right idea and then figuring out how to execute it. [With] “Craving You,” I’ve had that idea for a long time, of just wanting to make somewhat of an action-packed movie trailer of a music video — not that it really even related to the song “Craving You” at all. It was just fun to make, and I thought it was a cool visual, that my fans had never really seen me in that environment before.”

“Craving You” was the first single from Rhett’s Life Changes album. With his second single from the record, “Unforgettable,” rapidly climbing the charts, the artist hints that the “Craving You” video is going to inspire his future videos as well.

“I think these next videos off this record, I definitely want to continue to try to push myself, as far as making videos that may take longer or require somewhat of a script, or require me writing some of the story,” shares Rhett. “I’ve been very involved with my videos over the last three or four, and it’s nice to get in there and do something fresh and something that none of my fans have ever really seen before.”

“Craving You,” which was directed by TK McKamy, is nominated for Music Video of the Year at the 2017 a CMA Awards.

Thomas Rhett Is Excited to Celebrate Christmas with Kids: Last Year ‘Was Literally Me, My Wife and 2 Dogs’

Thomas Rhett Is Excited to Celebrate Christmas with Kids: Last Year ‘Was Literally Me, My Wife and 2 Dogs’

Thomas Rhett has belted out a lot of songs in his career, but his newest single “Life Changes” is probably the most apropos.

On Aug. 12, he and his wife Lauren Akins welcomed daughter Ada James. Just a few months prior, the couple adopted their daughter, Willa Gray, now 22 months old.

How’s that for life changes?

“Last Christmas it was literally me and my wife and two dogs, and this Christmas is going to be my wife, two dogs and two kids,” he told PEOPLE at the iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas on Saturday. “I would say that’s the most massive change on the planet.”

“It’s hard,” he said of juggling new fatherhood (times two!) and touring,” but Lauren has been so amazing.”

In fact, his wife flew to Los Angeles on Friday with the children to surprise him during his show at The Greek, which he says “is not an easy flight with two kids under 2.”

Like we said, life changes.

“I meet people in meet and greet and people will say, ‘I know that that story is your story, but I replace things that happen in my life and sing the chorus and it makes sense for all of us,’” Rhett said. “That’s one the things I thrive on as a songwriter is trying to make it as personal as I can and have it relate to as many people as humanly possible.”

Willa Gray can spot Thomas Rhett on the radio, but Bruno Mars is her favorite

abcnewsradioonline.com — Sure, Thomas Rhett has a #1 album on both the all-genre chart and the country ranking, as well as a top-ten song with “Unforgettable.”

But it’s likely the recognition of one single fan that means the most to him: that would be his adopted daughter from Uganda, Willa Gray.

“You can tell she loves music,” TR says, “because anytime there’s a drum beat, she’s dancing, she’s spinning around in circles. But lately, I’ve been pretty impressed, like when we’ll be riding in the car and ‘Unforgettable’ will come on the radio and she’ll go ‘Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy.’ And so I think she knows the sound of my voice enough, even when she hears it in a song, she can pick out that that’s a song that I sing.”

The father of two — Willa also has a newborn sister named Ada — says his oldest definitely gravitates toward one track on his chart-topping Life Changes album.

“She loves this song ‘Leave Right Now’ and it’s probably because it has such an intense beat. Bruno Mars is her favorite,” TR reveals. “She loves dance music in general, so I think that’s her favorite on the record.”

Thomas got to meet Bruno this week, sharing a photo of the two together on his socials. Midland’s Cameron Duddy, a longtime friend of the “Uptown Funk” hitmaker who’s also directed his videos, put the two together.

Thomas Rhett Wants to Do For Country Music Merch What Justin Bieber Did For Pop

Thomas Rhett Wants to Do For Country Music Merch What Justin Bieber Did For Pop

wmagazine.com — “I’ve always hated directions,” said Thomas Rhett, who on Tuesday became the first country singer to top the Billboard 200 this year.
It was last Friday, just days before Rhett’s accomplishment officially marked him as a major crossover artist, and he was between dates on a nationwide stadium tour supporting third album Life Changes. Doing things his own way is clearly working for the 27-year but when we spoke he was referring to his family and his two young daughters, both just under 2.

“We’ve gotten a whole bunch of stuff lately like strollers and cribs and my wife is always, like, ‘Hey, wait, get the directions. But I won’t do it,” he said, laughing. “I would rather sit there for seven hours and figure it out by myself. But I get it done.”

Bucking convention has made Rhett one of country music’s top new stars over the course of three albums, and his latest further tiptoes into mainstream music, mixing pop hooks and guitar rock to create a modern country sound. “Country music is changing so much,” Rhett said. “It’s interesting to see this shift in people who love pop and hip-hop music starting to come to country music concerts and find a blend of everything they love.”

Banking on his new commercial success, Rhett is extending into fashion with a pop-up collaboration alongside the Los Angeles streetwear designer Daniel Patrick, a favorite of other music personalities like Justin Bieber, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean and Teyana Taylor.

“I’ve never seen anyone else in country music do a pop-up store,” Rhett said, adding he doesn’t see any reason why these two worlds can’t fit together. “If you ask anybody how country artists dress, they would think probably a belt buckle and a cowboy hat. And there still are those people,” he said. At his pop-up shop, officially dubbed “Daniel Patrick X Thomas Rhett,” they’ll be able to buy anorak track pullovers, shorts and caps. “But, the people at my concerts, a lot of them are wearing Gucci T-shirts.” (The pop-up opens at L.A.’s Fairfax Melrose district on Friday, the same day as Rhett’s concert at the Greek Theatre, and runs through Sunday.)

As Rhett sees it, country fans want to embrace better merchandise, which in his view has been in a rut. “In country music, all we ever do is sell face-T’s,” he said, “and a lot of them are terrible, things that I would ever wear, ever.” So, he’s following in the footsteps of major pop stars, from Bieber to Kanye West and Rihanna, who are beefing up the quality of their merch by partnering with the likes of Fear of God and Alexander Wang.

Initially, Rhett met with some resistance from designers. “The response is always, our market is not country music, “ he said. But he argues that’s a missed opportunity to reach a huge and eager untapped audience.

“The biggest goal of the pop-up store is to put country music on that map, trying to get kids who want to be into fashion a way to start somewhere,” he said. “People could say, that’s not country. But, what is country? The goal is to change the sense that all we are is cars and dust and trucks.”
