It is safe to say country music star Thomas Rhett is happy to put 2020 behind him and move on into a new year.
The 30-year-old singer-songwriter is one of the country music industry’s biggest stars. And, not to mention, the son of singer Rhett Akins. Since breaking into the world of country music just about a decade ago, Rhett has put out four studio albums. He has also put 19 singles onto country music playlist charts with 15 of those songs reaching the top spot.
Some of his biggest hits include “It Goes Like This,” “Die a Happy Man” and “Marry Me.” He has also written several hit songs for the likes of Jason Aldean, Lee Brice and Florida Georgia Line.
Thomas Rhett enjoys performing in front of live crowds but hasn’t gotten to do much of that as of late. As it has with most everything, the deadly COVID-19 virus threw a wrench into the singer’s touring plans. He is far from the only musical act affected by the ongoing pandemic but he’s now focusing on getting back on the road.

Rhett took to social media on Tuesday to announce plans for a three-night live show event later this year. He says the mini-tour will kick off on May 6. Rhett proclaims it feels really good to be announcing upcoming live shows for the first time in a while.
“Man it feels good to say this,” he is says in the Instagram post. “The guys and I will be playing three back-to-back nights May 6,7, and 8 at @billybobtexas to help celebrate their 40th birthday.”
