Country star Thomas Rhett has a lot on his plate career-wise and in his personal life. As reported last month, Rhett and wife Lauren Akins are expecting a baby girl in August and are also adopting a child from Africa. The singer-songwriter also recently embarked on his Home Team tour and is in the process of creating his next album.
Whew, we’re exhausted for him.
“This is the first year that we tried to really compartmentalize our year, rather than trying to go make a record and go write songs and tour all at the same time,” Rhett recently shared with ABC Radio. “That just gets too stressful for everybody. So we went and recorded the entire record in January, rehearsed all of February, and now we’re just in tour season.”
Now that Thomas and his team are out on the road, they are working hard to put the finishing touches on the record.
“The bulk of the record, it’s all been cut. It’s just now it requires me finding time to sing it and get it mixed and get it mastered and then try to whittle it down, because we cut way too many songs,” the Tennessee native disclosed. “So I’m going to have to figure out which ones are gonna stay and which ones are gonna go.”
While he won’t go into details yet, fans can expect some welcome surprises down the line.
“We have a couple of collaborations on this next project, but I would probably get killed if I told you who and what they were,” Rhett joked. “But it’s gonna be really fun. We really stepped it up hugely from the last record…”
Besides his upcoming musical output, the soon-to-be father of two also revealed where he and his wife are looking for baby name inspiration. Watch below!
This year is going to be a huge for Thomas on so many levels. We wish him and Lauren the best!
