We can always count on Thomas Rhett to make us swoon with his live performances, and he was at it once again when he took the stage at the CMT Music Awards on June 7. What did you think of his rendition of ‘Craving You’!?
It has been quite a year for Thomas Rhett, 27, and he kept things going by taking the stage at the CMT Music Awards on June 7. The country singer gave a beautiful performance of his song “Craving You,” and as always, he totally killed it! Thomas kept it pretty simple for the performance, rocking out on his guitar in front of a microphone while girls danced behind him on chairs. The song actual features Maren Morris, but unfortunately, she wasn’t able to make the show to join him this time!
Ever since he released his song “Die A Happy Man” in the fall of 2015, TR’s career has really taken off — he was even honored as Male Vocalist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music awards in April! At this year’s CMT Awards, Thomas is up for Male Video of the Year for “Star of the Show,” Social Superstar and CMT Performance of the Year for his duet with Nick Jonas on CMT Crossroads. Although he’s been nominated for CMT Awards before, he’s never won at this particular show, but this could totally be his year to do it!
Meanwhile, things are going very good in the 27-year-old’s personal life, too. Earlier this year, Thomas and his wife, Lauren Akins, announced that she’s pregnant with their first child together and revealed that they would be adopting a little girl from Uganda. They brought their daughter, Willa Gray, home in May, and Lauren is due with another baby girl in August, so things are about to get super crazy for the country superstar. Plus, he’s getting ready to put out his third album, too, although a release date has not been confirmed just yet. So exciting!
