Thomas Rhett Returns 11/19-20

| November 14, 2022

This week, Thomas Rhett returns with more stores about his friends in the Top 30.  Thomas explained why he chose Riley Green for his current duet: “Me & Riley had become good buddies. He’s taken me to Arkansas to duck hunt with him.  Every time I listened to this song I thought about Riley. Maybe because every post I see with him is about beer. So I sent him the song, he sang it twice, and it was done.”

Thomas had Parker McCollum with him on the road all year, and recalled this story: “I had Parker join me every night for ‘Beer Can’t Fix.’  The first night, he came out and he literally didn’t sing one right word of the entire second verse.  He got off stage and sent me a text that said, ‘Dude, that’ll never happen again.’  I was dying.  He made up a whole new second verse. I commend his effort.”

Thomas told Lon he heard Hardy’s current hit long before it was released. “Hardy sent me this entire album a while ago.  When I heard Wait In The Truck, I freaked out. It took everything in me not to post it on Instagram and say ‘I’m telling you, you’re about to hear a song that’s gonna change your life.'”

Thomas toured with Cole Swindell in 2021, and told Lon they’ll be back together again next year: “I callled Cole and asked him if he would come out with me one more time, and he agreed.  I’ve never been more hyped up about a tour. It’s me & him with Nate Smith. Gosh I can’t wait to be back with my buddy. Touring with Cole has been one of the highlights of my career.”

Cole with play Country 2 Country in the UK next year, and Lon asked if he’s bringing the family: “We are, it happens to fall on their spring break. So we’ll finally get to see some parts of the UK together. We’ll be able to play those shows and have a little vacation too.”

Thomas also has great stories this week about Luke Bryan, Ingrid Andress, Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Dustin Lynch, and Morgan Wallen.

NEXT WEEK: Luke Bryan
