Thomas Rhett grew up surrounded by music. His father, Rhett Akins, is a well-known country music singer and songwriter, with hit songs such as "Don't Get Me Started." Since his father was an influential figure in the business, it wasn't unusual for Rhett to see country stars such as Tim McGraw and Blake Shelton at his house.
Rhett later went on to pursue a career in music himself, and won the hearts of country fans everywhere with his romantic hit "Die a Happy Man." The song has also helped Rhett win a lot of awards...he recently took home the ACCA Song of the Year Award and the ACM Record of the Year Award for the song.
