Thomas Rhett stopped by The Today Show this morning to talk about an amazing year that ended with a Grammy nomination.
Being nominated for a Grammy after this big year that we had was just the most massive cherry on top in the world,” he told Willie. “As a kid I dreamed of being nominated for a Grammy. I’m so pumped to be there and be part of that environment.”
He then offered a pearl of wisdom we can all follow: “You just have to live today. And I think one of my New Year’s resolutions is definitely trying to stop and live in the moment and cherish it.”
Not too shabby for a kid who grew up listening to Will Smith and didn’t even make it through a semester of pre-med classes before giving it all up for music.
“I grew up with, maybe not the best hip-hop in the world, but a lot of hip-hop. Will Smith was like my jam when I was like 9 or 10 years old,” he said.
Thomas will return to Today on Tuesday for a big announcement….What do you think it will be?
