Thomas Rhett, Part of Country Music History
Thomas Rhett is following in the musical footsteps of his dad, singer-songwriter Rhett Akins, and the path seems to be working for him.
The father and son recently made country music history, when five of the Top 10 songs on the country singles chart were written, co-written, or sung by one of them. As far as anyone has established, it’s the first time that has ever happened. Included in the five songs is Rhett’s current Top 5 hit, ‘It Goes Like This,’ which he wrote with his famous father. He says he still can’t believe their latest accomplishment. Rhett’s debut album, ‘It Goes Like This,’ will be released on Oct. 29.
