Words matter. These are the best Thomas Rhett Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
I’m ever-changing and always evolving, always trying new things.
I’m a normal, horrible, screwed up human being like everyone else. I mean, I’m not horrible person, but I’m just as screwed up as anybody.
I’m a huge fan of Drake. Anything he puts out is great to work out to.
My position on Speedos changes depending on the country that I’m in. If you’re in Europe, it’s definitely acceptable.
I wanted to be so many different things in the beginning – I wanted to be a rocker, I wanted to be a great songwriter, I wanted to be a great melodic singer.
I try not to put myself in a box, so I’ll write with anybody who wants to. I don’t put limitations on my co-writes.
You don’t start out getting into the gym and bench pressing 300 pounds. You start out by doing the bar.
If a new artist wants to put out some sort of off-the-wall, crazy deep ballad about the sun or whatever, it might be hard to get traction. It’s so much easier for someone established to put out a really heartfelt, deep song and get it played in radio.
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.
Everybody besides my piano player has been with me since the very first day. We were a four-piece band for a solid two years. It was me playing acoustic and rhythm electric guitar, a bass player, a drummer and a lead guitar player. For a couple of years, we sounded like the Foo Fighters.
There are people who will always want the genre, whatever it is, to stay traditional, to stay what it was like when you were 15 years old, but I just don’t think music does that. Music is always changing and evolving, just like us as people.
I rap on ‘Front Porch Junkies’ and ‘Whatcha Got in that Cup.’ I try to channel my inner Lil Wayne and Drake. It’s fun to be able to freestyle over a country melody and say country words over a rap song.
We’re gone for 280, almost 300 days a year. So 70 to 80 days I’m home every year. Being an artist, you just gotta be ready to miss certain things, like Halloween and all these kind of things that you used to be able to be free for. Birthdays, all this kind of stuff.
At every sound check, I try to practice on the stage that we’re gonna play on that night, ’cause every stage is different. Whether it’s concrete or whether it’s plywood or whether it’s Plexiglas, it all requires different things. You can’t dance on concrete as well as you can dance on Plexiglas.
I love being the dude that does what no else is doing in the genre. It’s exciting and terrifying at the same time.
I’m not just trying to be good at one thing and then call it a day. I want to be like Bruno Mars.
I played in a punk rock band in high school called the High Heel Flip Flops. I was the drummer. I played drums for, like, four years.
You definitely get the answer ‘no’ more times in this business than you do ‘yes.’ It’s what you do with those ‘nos’ that makes your success either great or not.
I realize that I’m not a great dancer. I’ve given up the hip-shaking. I don’t pelvic thrust anymore. Those were the beginning days of T. R. learning how to dance. But I love it, and I’ve taken a few choreography lessons. But other than that, I kinda just feel it, I guess.
My dad is one of my favorite human beings in the world. He’s just a good person, and he could entertain a brick wall.
People tell me I’m like the country version of Justin Timberlake. Actually, the other day someone told me I was an unathletic version of Justin Timberlake, and I was like, ‘I’ll take that.’
I’m obsessed with Bruno Mars’ records. I’d give my right leg to be able to sing like that dude.
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.
Dad told me that before I was born, he would put my mom’s stomach up to the speaker and play Led Zeppelin.
Growing up, as much as country was a big influence in my life, the Rolling Stones and the Beatles and Led Zeppelin were such a close second. My first concert ever was the Rolling Stones in Denver. I snuck a camera backstage and filmed Mick Jagger during sound-check.
I’m a junior, so my dad’s name is Thomas Rhett Akins as well. So literally, from the day I was born, it was Thomas Rhett. It wasn’t Thomas or Rhett, it was Thomas Rhett.
If you’re a good person, that’s all that really matters.
It is completely a God thing that I am here today because for the first 17 years of my life, I never thought I would ever do music professionally. I’d always liked what my dad did, but I never thought that I wanted to do it, just to be different.
Any time you’re nominated for anything, it’s a true blessing and something you should be really excited about, but it’s sort of time to not be considered new anymore because I don’t really feel like I’m new. I’m just glad people still see me as fresh. I wish there was a ‘fresh country artist category’ rather than ‘new.’
Thomas Rhett Akins doesn’t sound like a rock star name. I didn’t leave Akins out to convince people my dad wasn’t my dad. I’ve always been called Thomas Rhett.
