As the son of country music singer-songwriter Rhett Akins, you could say that Thomas Rhett was destined for stardom.  

Today, Rhett has achieved success in his own right as a country music artist, with three #1 hits coming off his debut album It Goes Like This, released in 2013.

But long before Rhett's hits climbed the charts, he already demonstrated that he had a knack for country music. 

In the video below, a young Rhett shows off his vocal talent alongside his famous father in a cover of the Joe Diffie classic "Third Rock From The Sun."

"Third Rock From The Sun" was released in 1986 from Diffie's album of the same title. The song went on to become Diffie's third #1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Songs chart.

When Rhett and his dad sit down to sing the hit song, father and son both wear big cowboy hats. Akins plays the acoustic guitar while they sing, and although he chimes in every now and then, he mainly lets his son take the lead.

Rhett's voice is absolutely adorable, but passionate as well. It's that same mix of passion and adorable charm that has made Rhett such a success today.

Watch the throwback duet between Rhett and his famous father in the video below!

LRYCIS BELOW

She walks into Smokey's
one hip at a time
Like a broken field runner
slippin' through the lines
He likes the way she looks
so he calls a little wife
says don't wait up for me,
I'll be workin late tonight.
Wife hangs up the phone bursts into tears
calls her sister up and cries get over here.

Sister tells her boyfriend be back in awhile
boyfriend wants a beer, the store is just a mile.
Leaves the motor runnin' he'll only be a minute,
his car drives away with teenagers in it.
Driver tells his buddies, got one life to live
they scream into the night, lets get it over with.

Cause and effect, chain of events,
All of the chaos makes perfect sense,
When we're spinnin' round,
Things come undone.
Welcome to the earth, third rock from the sun.

The kid guns the gas, car starts to swerve
Heads for a semi-truck, jumps the curb
Truck hits a bigboy in the Shoney's parking lot
Flies through the air, takes out the bank clock
Clock strikes a light pole, transformer sparks
lines go down, town goes dark.

Waitress calls the cops says she saw it all
swears a giant alien has landed at the mall
Cops ring up the mayor says there's panic in the street,
hate to wake you up but we cant find the chief,
mayor says use your head, if he ain't in his car
he's hiding from his wife, down at Smokey's bar

Cause and effect, chain of events,
All of the chaos makes perfect sense,
When we're spinnin' round,
Things come undone.
Welcome to the earth, third rock from the sun.

Cause and effect, chain of events,
All of the chaos makes perfect sense,
When we're spinnin' round,
Things come undone.
Welcome to the earth, third rock from the sun.

Welcome to Earth third rock from the sun.
Welcome to Earth third rock from the sun.
Welcome to Earth third rock from the sun.
