Thomas Rhett may have followed in his father's footsteps, and that helps that he could get constructive criticism. Thomas says his dad's advice, ideas and critiques helped him become the star he is today.
“Dad has always just been such a constant when it comes to me and my live show,” Thomas Rhett said of his dad Rhett Akins, a prominent country singer-songwriter himself. “A lot of that comes from me just growing up watching him play so many shows as an artist.”
“I’ll walk offstage and know that I did not play my best show, and he’s always the first one to be like, ‘Yeah, you know, a couple of things were pretty rough. But overall, it was good,'” he said. “He’s always been that calming presence and has always been the guy that says, ‘Why don’t you try swappin’ these two songs and see what happens,’ or ‘It’s all right … Don’t worry that we don’t have your first single, we will make it happen one way or the other.'”
