This country couple’s love story goes way, way back: Thomas and Lauren actually met when they were both first graders growing up in Georgia. In the years that followed, they became close friends, and they did things like attend church camp together. They even dated for a brief period of time in high school, but it didn’t feel right at the time, and they went back to being friends.

Even though he was certain that Akins was the one he was to marry, Rhett certainly didn’t skimp on the engagement. He popped the question inside his love’s favorite restaurant in Nashville, Giovanni’s. In a private room, Akins’ mom helped stash flowers, candles and the main ingredient: wine.

Multi-platinum selling performer Thomas Rhett brings his Very Hot Summer Tour” with special guests Dustin Lynch, Russell Dickerson and Rhett Akins to DTE Energy Music Theatre on Thursday, June 20 at 7 p.m.

Rhett, whose legal last name is Akins, told Taste of Country that the couple dated for six months when they were 15 — and it didn’t work. However, the two remained friends and had several separate relationships.

Dustin Lynch occupies a unique place in today’s country music. Thanks to his classic sensibilities, he’s been heralded as the heir to George Strait’s throne. Yet with one listen to his newest hit, Where It’s At,” it’s obvious the young Tennessean knows how to combine his traditional influences with an edgy intensity that places him at the vanguard of today’s contemporary country scene.

I don’t know if it was the crowd and being in Nashville, or the overall vibe, but I had a lot of fun at your show Thomas. Russell Dickerson really hyped up the crowd with his high energy and running all over and dancing. Dustin Lynch kept the fun going and it was great, would have like him to come down the cat walk more often but still good. During the break between you and Dustin the music you played made the crowd get up and dance and it was the best people watching ever, so many personalities! Your entrance was amazing, I swear you got 8 ft high and then I don’t know how you landed on your feet but you did. You had a great team with you and I’d go see everyone again. One thing I really love about you is your extreme love and devotion to your wife, I wish there were more men like you in the world that truly cherished their women and aren’t afraid to tell everyone how much they love them.

Thomas Rhett scored his first No. 1 hit in 2013 with It Goes Like This,” introducing a sound that mixed the southern swagger of county music with pop hooks, R&B grooves, soulful strut and the anything-goes attitude of rock. During the years since, he’s become a husband. A father, too. And, thanks to eight chart-topping singles, a headliner of massive arenas.



It’s just weird,” Rhett reflected ( via his record label ). “I think looking back at my 19-year-old self, that never in a million years thought that I wanted to be an artist. I wanted to stay in Nashville and just write songs, to where we’re at now is all a God thing to me. Every decision that we made and every tour I said yes to, every tour I said no to, every song I did cut, every song I didn’t cut, I think it was all part of some crazy plan.

Rhett became very outspoken about his faith at the recent CMT Artists of the Year ceremony, where he took his time on stage to pray for Kane Brown , who is mourning the loss of his drummer, Kenny Dixon Brown was also on hand to accept the honor, which moved Rhett to pray publicly for his friend.

It’s a phenomenon familiar to the country star who had the last #1 album before Rhett’s. That’d be the young black country phenom Kane Brown. Like Center Point Road, Brown’s chart-topping Experiment exists along the blurry borderline between boilerplate Nashville tropes and more pop-minded easy listening fare. Good As You” (#36 on the Hot 100) shares some DNA with Ed Sheeran, while Lose It” (#28) more explicitly embraces a country sound with abundant banjo and fiddle in the mix. His biggest exposure outside the country bubble, though, has come through collaborations with two of the most genre-averse hit-makers of this moment.

Rhett Akins has already achieved so much as both an artist and a songwriter, but he’s not done yet. The music video, which was shot in Oahu where the couple honeymooned, also features sweet footage of Thomas and Lauren together.

For instance, the soulfully folksy Irish balladeer Hozier, who has built a solid career for himself but hasn’t enjoyed a proper hit since his 2013 breakthrough Take Me To Church,” hopped on a remix of Maren Morris’ The Bones” this week. This is a travesty because The Bones” is a perfect pop-country song Creatively, the last thing it needs is 100% more Hozier. Yet Hozier clearly sees it as a chance to swoop some country listeners into his fan base, and with The Bones” lingering near the bottom of the Hot 100, Morris likely recognizes the potential for another crossover moment. But in the race to blow up, it’s got nothing on the week’s other country-pop collaboration.

Had a great time, never really listened to Thomas Rhett but loved what I heard, had a great time, look forward to learning more. Venue was great, great acoustics, had a really good time.

Thomas Rhett is quickly becoming one of the reigning superstars in country music, a fact that surprises no one more than the singer. The 29-year-old admits he has worked hard for all of his success, but says most of the credit belongs to his faith in God.

Sometimes the genre-jumping is more overt, and it works both ways. Last year , just as country star Maren Morris was crashing pop radio with an assist from Zedd, pop mainstay Bebe Rexha was bum-rushing the country charts with help from Florida Georgia Line. Rhett himself has toyed with the idea of jumping on a more overt pop song, name-checking pals like the Chainsmokers (who recently teamed up with former Rhett duet partner Kelsea Ballerini) and Diplo (who just conscripted the Jonas Brothers into his own campaign for a country crossover).

Country music star Thomas Rhett , with special guests Dustin Lynch , Russell Dickerson and Rhett Akins , will be making a stop at Saint Paul’s Xcel Energy Center on Saturday, Sept. 7.
