“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

TheSun.co.uk — 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 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 Tallies 10th Country Airplay No. 1 With ‘Marry Me’

Thomas Rhett Tallies 10th Country Airplay No. 1 With ‘Marry Me’

Billboard.com — Thomas Rhett collects his 10th No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, as “Marry Me” rises 2-1, hiking 6 percent to 40.7 million impressions in the week ending March 4, according to Nielsen Music. It ranks at its No. 2 high on the airplay-, streaming- and sales-based Hot Country Songs chart for an eighth week.

“Marry,” which Rhett co-wrote with Shane McAnally, Ashley Gorley and Jesse Frasure, is the third single and third Country Airplay No. 1 from Rhett’s Life Changes LP, which debuted at the summit of Top Country Albums and the all-genre Billboard 200 (Sept. 30, 2017). The ballad follows “Unforgettable,” which topped the Nov. 18, 2017, Country Airplay chart, and “Craving You” (featuring Maren Morris), which led the July 22 list.

Rhett first ruled the Country Airplay chart dated Oct. 26, 2013, with “It Goes Like This.”

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.”

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.
