The landscape of Lower Broadway in Music City has steadily been filling up with neon signs featuring bars owned by country artists like Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line and Blake Shelton.
Could Thomas Rhett be adding his name to the downtown Nashville scene?
“Maybe,” says Rhett according to an interview with his record label, Big Machine Label Group. “I think if I was ever gonna do somethin’ like that, it would have to be a place that I would realistically go to.”
He went on to share that since he has become a father his priorities have changed.
“As a dad with four children, my going to Broadway days have come to a pretty bare minimum, if any,” Rhett continues, “So, you know, if I did it I would love to be able to create something super unique and something that’s not already done — really cool vibe, a really neat atmosphere, more of like a singer-songwriter speakeasy place, but also a place that you could watch a football game, but also the food would to be exceptional. So, I don’t know. It’d be fun. It’d be worth the conversation for sure.”
Thomas Rhett Has Four Daughter Under The Age Of Eight
Rhett and his wife, Lauren, have four daughters under the age of eight: Willa Gray (7), Ada James (5), Lennon Love (3) and Lillie Carolina (1).
He recently paid tribute to the women in his life on International Women’s Day with a heartfelt Instagram post of the family of six.
The caption read, “Outnumbered and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Happy International Women’s Day!! Y’all run the world.”
“Angels (Don’t Always Have Wings)”
The couple celebrated their 10-year anniversary and Rhett sings about it in his autobiographical love ballad and latest single, “Angels (Don’t Always Have Wings),” from his album, Where We Started.
In an interview with Billboard, Rhett said he read a book the night before his writing session with multi-genre singer-songwriter Teddy Swims about an angel who presents in the physical world as a human. He applied that concept to his wife and other co-writers Josh Thompson and Julian Bunetta bought in.
The song, while similar to other ballads like “Die a Happy Man,” the current one tests Rhett’s vocal abilities. In that same article, Billboard wrote that Rhett didn’t record the vocals in front of a producer or engineer. He wanted to capture the song’s vulnerability and sang 60 or 70 takes in his home studio that were compiled into one vocal.
“Angels” debuted at No. 51 on the Feb. 11 Country Airplay chart and moved into No. 32 in its second and continues to steadily climb the charts.
Rhett recently finished the Canadian leg of his “Bring the Bar to You Tour.” He toured from coast to coast with Jordan Davis and Kameron Marlowe as openers.
Next up is the “Home Team Tour 23” which is scheduled to kick off on May 4 in Des Moines, Iowa, at Wells Fargo Arena. The tour stops in 27 states and ends at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., on Sept. 29. Cole Swindell and newcomer Nate Smith will be joining as support.
