(AUDIO) Thomas Rhett Credits His Dad For Making Him A Thankful Go-Getter

June 9, 2013

Thomas Rhett is fortunate that his dad, Rhett Akins, is an artist and a very successful songwriter who can offer him plenty of great advice for his career, but he says the best life lessons he’s learned from his dad are how to be a go-getter and to always be thankful for what you have in life. “I guess when I was growing up I was more shy about things that I wanted, as far as sports goes,” explains Thomas. “Playing football, I never was that guy that would really try to get into the mix and try to make a name for myself on the football field. But when I got out of high school, dad really taught me how to go after what I wanted and work really hard for what I wanted and not take for granted … and remember where the hard work came from.” That hard work is paying off for Thomas these days with his latest single, “It Goes Like This,” steadily moving up the charts, and he says the other important lesson his dad taught him is, “Whenever something good happens in your life, to immediately thank God for it because it’s not your doing anyways. He has a plan for everybody. So dad’s always taught me to really be thankful to God for everything I’ve been given.”

“Dad has always taught me to be a go-getter. I guess when I was growing up I was more shy about things that I wanted, as far as sports goes. Playing football, I never was that guy that would really try to get into the mix and try to make a name for myself on the football field. But when I got out of high school, dad really taught me how to go after what I wanted and work really hard for what I wanted and not take for granted, but when I did get it, and remember where the hard work came from. He always taught me whenever something good happens in your life, to immediately thank God for it because it’s not your doing anyways. He has a plan for everybody. So dad’s always taught me to really be thankful to God for everything I’ve been given.”
