Thomas Rhett Gives His Dad All The Credit

Pepsi's Rock The South Festival - Day 1

Thomas Rhett is up for four CMA Awards this year: Male Vocalist and two Album of the Year nominations – one as the artist and another as the producer. He’s also in the running for Video of the Year for “Marry Me.”  That’s a lot of hardware to be won and Thomas says he gives all of the credit to his dad. 

"When I think about who taught me to sing in the first place, it was my dad. And to this day I think my dad is one of the best songwriters and performers I’ve ever gotten to witness. I think dad has been the main influence on me vocally and me as a songwriter and a performer. And so I owe dad a lot of credit for being here today."

Not only is Thomas nominated…he’s also performing on the show.  Don’t miss the 52nd Annual CMA Awards LIVE from Nashville Wednesday, November 14th at 8 on ABC.  You can also listen to it on 94.9 The Bull.
