‘Like Father Like Son’ is the perfect quote that suits Thomas Rhett. He is the son of Rhett Akins, an award-winning country crooner who rocked the stages during the 1990s. Success is in his blood, as three singles from his debut album alone went on number one over Country Airplay. Not only a singer and performer, he has written a number of songs for himself and for other artists as well, including Lee Brice, Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean.
As a child, Thomas used to follow his father on his singing tours, and played drums for him on the stage. In high school, he created a band named The High Heeled Flip Flops, and had made up his mind to pursue career in music and nothing else. In Lipscomb University, he played in a cowboy show and frat parties, which gave him the much-needed exposure to crowds of people.
