Rhett opened up for the last performers of the weekend, Florida Georgia Line, and was a hard act to follow.
Performing major hits like “It Goes Like This,” “Get Me Some of That” and “Make Me Wanna,” all of which went number 1 on Country Airplay. The crowd went wild. Rhett showed off his dance moves as well!
Rhett is a country music singer and the son of Rhett Akins. Thomas Rhett has written singles for well-known artists like Jason Aldean, Lee Brice and Florida Georgia Line, all of which performed at the 3-day Delaware festival.
Rhett started his music career early when he learned to play drums in junior high and when he was old enough he would go on stage with his father. After putting together a band in high school, he later went onto Lipscomb University where he played for a cowboy show and became a true performer.
Rhett tapped into the country scene when he co-wrote Jason Aldean’s “I Ain’t Ready to Quit” and then signed a contract with Big Machine Records. He later released his debut single “Something to Do with My Hands,” followed by his hit “Beer with Jesus,” which he performed on the main stage just before Florida Georgia Line’s performance.
