In the midst of last week’s CMA Music Fest, Valdosta, GA natives Thomas Rhett and Rhett Akins made time to head home for a special concert at Wild Adventures Theme Park that brought together two generations of talent and compassion. The son and father helped raise $40,000 for Great Strides Valdosta in honor of their cousin Sophie, who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis.
“Cystic Fibrosis is a terrible disease, and when it happens to one of your family members it puts it that much more at the forefront of your mind and makes you want to do anything you can to help out,” said Thomas Rhett.
Fans were treated to Thomas Rhett’s back-to-back #1 smashes “It Goes Like This” and “Get Me Some Of That” from his debut album IT GOES LIKE THIS (The Valory Music Co.) as well as chart-toppers he wrote for Florida Georgia Line (“Round Here”) and Jason Aldean (“1994″). While finding initial success as an artist with “That Ain’t My Truck,” Rhett Akins has become an esteemed songwriter, penning both of his son’s recent hits as well as “Point At You” (Justin Moore), “Honey Bee” and “Boys ‘Round Here” (Blake Shelton), among others.
Thomas Rhett is back out on the road this summer performing at fairs and festivals across the country before joining Miranda Lambert’s PLATINUM TOUR this fall. For dates and more, visit www.thomasrhett.com.
