WYRK Exclusive! A Chat With New Artist Thomas Rhett![VIDEO]

I was invited to a studio on Music Row today to see and meet Valory Music’s new artist Thomas Rhett. He is the son of Rhett Akins (That Ain’t My Truck). What a  thrill. Not only was it great to see a guy before he makes it “big” and before the  world has even seen or heard him officially, but the setting was one I won’t ever forget!

We met at a studio along 16th Avenue. Not just any studio. Where I stood was the exact same spot that Eddie Rabbit recorded songs like “Driving My Life Away” and “I Love A Rainy Night.” You could actually feel this strange sense of being in a magical place! It is not what I would have expected. It is a small house with a room that is enclosed by cement block walls and has a large checkered floor. It reminded me of an old elementary school gym but on a smaller scale.

We were not able to film any of his performance but I was able to grab a quick interview with Thomas! Here is an inside tip…keep looking out for and listening for songs like “A Beer With Jesus” and “Whatcha Got In That Cup!” Some absolutely amazing stuff that is going to make a huge impact on the Country Music world! It was a real treat and I think that you are gonna love this guy! O and by the way, the same guy that discovered Taylor Swift, found Thomas! Scott Borchetta was on hand today and told me “I wasn’t going to sign anyone after Brantley Gilbert. We were going to take a break. When I heard Thomas I said…this guy is (very) good!”
