Every father dreams of success for their children and Rhett Akins’ wish came true in a big way. Country star Thomas Rhett followed in his singer-songwriter father’s footsteps when he pursued a musical career, but his dad still can not believe the popularity Thomas Rhett has attained. However, when asked to comment on Thomas’ achievements, Akins replied to the gathered media outlets, “I’m more proud that everybody thinks that he’s such a good person and the love that he and Lauren have. I’m more proud of the way he’s grown up and become a man.”
Thomas Rhett’s hit songs such as “Die A Happy Man,” “Crash and Burn” and “T-Shirt” have placed him into an elite group of country artists, and Rhett Akins is still shocked watching his son perform. In fact, Akins aims to attend as many of his son’s concerts as possible, often joining Thomas on stage. When asked about Thomas’ potential, Rhett Akins said, “It’s just really weird to see him in this position to where he’s not far away, if he keeps going, from being Luke [Bryan] or Jason [Aldean] or Eric Church or any of those guys.” Akins also suggests that he is still learning from his son, both musically and as a father.
The young star also shares an incredible relationship with his wife, Lauren Akins. Thomas and Lauren met years ago as children and celebrated their 4th wedding anniversary in October. They recently shared some exciting news. Not only is the young couple adopting a child, but Lauren is also pregnant with a baby girl!
