Thomas Rhett: From prolific songwriter to star in his own right — Ask Thomas Rhett about how he learned about music, songwriting or performing and you get variations of the answer — from his dad.

That would be his dad and namesake, Thomas Rhett Akins, a veteran country singer and songwriter who’s written hits for Luke Bryan, Brooks & Dunn, LoCash, Lee Brice and a kid whose real name is Thomas Rhett Akins Jr.

But the influence of Akins starts far earlier than when father and son started writing songs together.

“If it wasn’t for him, all I would have listened to when I was a kid would have been *NSYNC, Justin Timberlake and Garth Brooks,” Rhett says. “He introduced me to The Beatles and Southern rock, even Tupac. That’s why my music is so diverse today.”

The same influence holds true for Rhett’s performance. An engaging entertainer, Rhett picked that up around the house as well.

“I keep talking about my dad,” Rhett says. “My dad is the best impersonator, the best storyteller I’ve been around. He’s always been the life of the party guy. Getting to watch him, that kind of rubbed off on me too. Getting up in front of people and performing came really naturally to me.”

“Anytime my dad had a camera, I wanted to get in front of it and do something, does that make any sense?” he says. “It was a really cool way to grow up. Getting to be around Reba (McEntire) and Tim McGraw as a little kid might seem weird to some people. But they were his running buddies. You learn stuff from them you didn’t even know you were getting when you were 10 or 11.”

Rhett now gets to show off his performing skills headlining shows in arenas. But it took awhile for him to get there.

Dropping out of college to pursue a music career at 20, Rhett wrote songs for the likes of Jason Aldean (“I Ain’t Ready to Quit” and “1994”), Florida Georgia Line (“Round Here”) and Brice (“Parking Lot Party”).

By September 2013, the Billboard magazine country airplay chart had five songs in the Top 10 written by Rhett and/or Akins, including “It Goes Like This,” the title cut of Rhett’s debut album and his first No. 1 hit.

That success put Rhett on the road, playing clubs and jumping on bigger tours as a support. While his songs were on the radio, both by him and other artists, he was plugging away, building his career

“It’s the slow climb,” Rhett said. “The more artists I talk to, like Dierks (Bentley), Aldean and (Kenny) Chesney, they had moments where they jumped up. But they were doing it year after year after year. There’s something that might be nice about overnight success. But there’s something rewarding about doing it the way we’ve done it.”

For Rhett, the jump came with “Tangled Up,” his 2015 album, and its song “Die a Happy Man,” which spent two months on top of the country charts starting in December 2015.

“Before we released ‘Die a Happy Man’ as a single, we were playing pretty consistently to 2,000-3,000 people a night,” he said. “Last fall, we filled the Yum Center in Louisville. “How do you go from 2,000 people to 16,000 people in a year? It’s really amazing what a hit song can do for you.”

“Die a Happy Man” changed more than Rhett’s career. It, he said, made him a better, more honest songwriter.

“After ‘Die a Happy Man,” people want to hear the real stuff,’ he said. “That’s freeing. There’s no more getting into a room trying to write a generic hit. If you can have a hit that really touches people, that’s the greatest feeling in the world.”

The success of “Die a Happy Man” and “Tangled Up” put the pressure on Rhett for its follow up, as he was constantly touring. He met the challenge of creating “Life Changes,” the chart-topping album he released last year, by writing on the road, bringing out co-writers to collaborate for a few days at a time to write between shows.

“We’ll sit in the bus, drink coffee and talk, talk about song titles, melodies whatever,” he added. “The next thing you know you’ve written three songs in two days.”

The writing sessions worked. “Life Changes” has so far produced three No. 1 Country Airplay singles — “Craving You,” “Unforgettable” and “Marry Me.”

Rhett’s home life is flourishing as well. He and his wife, and childhood sweetheart, Lauren, now have two little girls, 2-year-old Willa and Ada. So he understandably likes to be home spending time with his family.

The good news is he’ll have some breaks in his schedule this summer.

“If this was last year, it would have been tough,” Rhett said of touring. “This year, I’m doing the Kenny Chesney dates in the summer (opening for that country superstar). But he only plays on Saturdays. The whole summer I’m going to be leaving on Thursday and getting back home on Sunday. I’ll be home from Monday through Thursday. That’s going to be a first in my career.”

Video: Thomas Rhett reveals NEW video for “Leave Right Now” Remix Featuring Martin Jensen

Thomas Rhett has released his brand new music video for Leave Right Now in collaboration with Danish DJ Martin Jensen.

The 28-year-old released the single as part of his 2017 album release Life Changes.

Speaking about working with Jensen he said: “I really love how Martin Jensen added to this track.

“He took it to a place that really made it special, so I wanted the video to reflect that energy and anticipation you feel in the song.”

“It’s been chaos!” US country music star Thomas Rhett reveals life has ‘drastically changed’ since becoming a father and landing a number one album

“It’s been chaos!” US country music star Thomas Rhett reveals life has ‘drastically changed’ since becoming a father and landing a number one album — US Country music star Thomas Rhett admits becoming a father to two girls and scoring a number one album on the Billboard 200 has turned his life on its head.

The singer, 28, described the last two years as “chaos in the best possible way” after adopting Willa, two, from Uganda last May and welcoming the arrival of biological daughter Ada just two months later.

His third album, Life Changes, debuted at number one in the US in September giving Thomas his chart-topping LP.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, Thomas said: “My life could not have changed any more drastically in the last two years.

“My life will probably not change that much ever again. The last year has been chaos in the best way possible, that’s the best way you can describe it.

“My kids have been the influence for a lot of the songs on my next album, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It’s been a very special couple of years.”

Thomas and his wife Lauren decided to adopt Willa after Lauren met her while on a mission trip. Lauren’s parents were adopted and Thomas said it was always a pathway the couple wanted to go down. Continue reading

Thomas Rhett Was Road-tripping When He First Heard Himself on Radio — It’s been a handful of years since Thomas Rhett made his radio debut, but the singer still remembers the career-changing moment like it was yesterday.

Before Rhett hit the big time with his country-pop sound, he relied on his Georgia twang to move him into the format with a strong lead. “Something to Do With My Hands” made its way over to the hands of DJs across the country, in which Rhett got his first taste of the big time when he finally heard the track play in the car during a drive one day.

“The first time I heard my song on the radio was driving from L.A. to Vegas. It was my first single, ‘Something To Do With My Hands,’ feels like ages ago. But me and my radio rep George Briner were driving, and it’s like a four or five-hour drive, and one of the stations we were driving through told us they were going to play it because they knew we were in the car,” Rhett chronicled to Westwood One.

Now, Rhett probably hears his music playing through his speakers more often than not after scoring a plethora of No. 1 hits. Songs such as “Craving You” and “Marry Me” have reached the top position just from his most recent album alone, with previous singles hitting that same top spot in the past. His current single, “Life Changes,” is at country radio.

Fans can catch Rhett out on the road for his headlining Life Changes Tour.

Thomas Rhett A Sucker for a Good, Sad Song

CMT.comBut Then What’s With the Happy Ending?

“Marry Me” is sad enough as a song. But then the video? I can barely get one minute in — when Thomas Rhett reveals that she wants to get married, but just not to him — before the tears kick in.

So when I talked to Thomas Rhett about the video after he rehearsed his performance of the song at the ACM Awards, he told me that that reaction — a gut punch, he called it — was kind of his intention.

“I really just wanted to tell the story of what my life would’ve been like had I not had the confidence to walk up to Lauren and tell her I’ve basically been in love with her since church camp in 7th grade,” he said.

He wrote the song with Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Shane McAnally, and he told me they wrote it as a fantasy of the worst kind. “It’s just about me going to her wedding when she’s marrying somebody else. A pretty morbid thought,” he said, “but I’m a sucker for a good sad song.”

Some of his favorite songwriters of all time, he said, write about what they know, but also about what they pulled from their memories. “And if you can kind of go back — for me that would’ve been all through high school — I got dumped by Lauren a couple times and dated some other girls. So I know the feeling of heart break well. And so when I can write a song like that, I can go back into that part of my brain and deliver it as that person: the saddest person in the world.”

At the very end of the video, he leaves the wedding before the vows are exchanged, and he goes to drown his unrequited sorrows at a diner. And just as he starts to sip his café au whiskey, the bride shows up in the window. Her shrug is half “what have I done?” and half “where the hell were you?”

So her ambiguous appearance left me with a lot of unanswered questions, which Rhett was quick to answer.

“Oh she definitely left her fiance for good. Because if she’d left her wedding just to go say, ‘What’s up’ to him, obviously that marriage probably ain’t gonna work out,” he said. “I think they get back together in the end.”

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