Thomas Rhett has learned the art of songwriting from one of the best in the business – his father, Rhett Akins. Rhett loves having his father join him on the road, but when Akins is on the tour bus, it is not all about father-son bonding.

“Every time Dad comes to the show you can guarantee that he’ll be at the front of the house at the beginning, and then backstage when we get off stage,” Rhett said. “And the first thing I’ll be is like, ‘What’d you think?’ And he’ll either say it was awesome or got a list of things that I shoulda done better or set list should’ve been different.” Continue Reading

Miranda Lambert kicked off her Platinum Tour earlier this month, and she’s bringing Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett along with her. Both Moore and Rhett are looking forward to touring with Lambert. Moore even rearranged his summer plans to go on the tour.

“She asked us out, and we weren’t really looking for another tour to do, especially since we’ve kinda got our own thing going now,” he said. “But, not unlike Randy [Houser] and Josh [Thompson] and me going out together, it’s really fun to go out and tour with people who you’re actually friends with. The fact that she’s on my album, plus we’re such good friends, I thought it’d be a fun change of pace for us.” Continue Reading

Miranda Lambert is hitting the road this summer. She will kick off her Crystal Light presents Platinum Tour in Ft. Loramie, Ohio, on July 10.

“’Platinum’ represents a lifestyle for me,” Miranda said. “It’s the color of my hair, my wedding ring, my Airstream trailer, so it’s just a natural fit for the name of my new album, and it’s why we decided to name the tour ‘Platinum’, too.” Continue Reading

Thomas Rhett has a confession to make. He likes chick flicks. He’s definitely a “guy’s guy,” but when it comes to making wife Lauren happy, he’ll gladly sit down with her to watch a rom com.

“I don’t mind watchin’ Nicolas Sparks movies like Safe Haven, or The Notebook, or A Walk to Remember,” he said. “It’s kinda crazy I know all these titles, but, you know, I’m a fan of those kinds of movies and so it’s really easy to sit down and watch those with her.” Continue Reading

Thomas Rhett’s tour schedule usually keeps him on the road for Valentine’s Day. That doesn’t keep him from having plans on how to celebrate the holiday with wife Lauren, however. And he’s giving advice to any man looking for a way to make the day special.

“I would really encourage loads of chocolate, maybe a teddy bear if she’s into that kind of thing,” he said. “Just some good ‘ol kissin’ time on the couch, maybe a little romantic movie. That’s my plan for Valentine’s Day.” Continue Reading

Thomas Rhett ended 2013 strong, coming off a three-week No. 1 with “It Goes Like This” and also topping the chart as a songwriter on Florida Georgia Line’s hit “’Round Here.” His latest single, “Get Me Some of That,” is climbing the charts. Thomas can see the momentum shifting in his career.

“We were on the ‘Night Train’ tour with Jason Aldean, it started in February and we’d go out there some nights and it would be 80% full and we’d go out the next night and it’d be 50% full when I walked onstage,” he said. “That was when ‘It Goes Like This’ had just first come out. I noticed that as the song was climbing the chart, it would get in the Top 20, then it’d get in the Top 10 and you could tell that more and more people were showing up.”  Continue Reading

Thomas Rhett is a talented songwriter. While some artists channel their emotions into their lyrics, Thomas says he doesn’t need to write a song to express what he’s feeling in everyday life.

“I’m an open book,” he said. “If I’m in a bad mood, you’re gonna know. If I’m happy, you’re gonna know. And if something’s bothering me I’m gonna tell ya. You can ask my wife Lauren, I’ve always been that way.” Continue Reading
