June 23, 2014, NASH Magazine – Thomas Rhett: Making His Own Path

Thomas Rhett, the son of hit songwriter Rhett Akins, is beginning to forge his own identity as a rising country star. Thomas recently scored his second straight No. 1 single, “Get Me Some of That,” which he co-wrote with his dad. The young singer/songwriter shares with NASH that, despite his pedigree, he still had to pay the usual dues.

“In the beginning, I really didn't have any idea of what I was doing,” he says. “At that point, Dad was letting me make my own mistakes, which was the best thing for me.”

Also, in the NASH Q&A, Lauren Alaina reveals the song she wishes she'd written and the one item she refuses to share.
