Thomas Rhett has proven he isn’t afraid to cross genre lines when it comes to his music. The 27-year-old has released three albums, including his recent Life Changes record. With each project, Rhett fuses country music with blues, R&B, rock and jazz — bold and brave decisions that, for Rhett, simply pay homage to his childhood.
Not that Rhett’s choices have always come easy for him. The “Marry Me” singer admits he struggles with not being a rule-follower in an industry that is often reticent to change, but he is fueled by his love of authentic and honest music.
Sam Hunt has had quite a memorable year, and the singer has a lot to celebrate this holiday season as he spends time with family.
Hunt recently reminisced about holidays past, sharing his favorite Christmas gifts he’d ever received, both of which had a similar theme. “I remember being really excited when, I got into riding horses, and one Christmas I got a Mustang that I named Comanche – a horse – and that was a really exciting time,” the star shared. “I rode all the time after that. Before, I had some friends, a babysitter whose kids had horses, so I’d be able to ride occasionally, but now I was able to ride whenever I wanted to.”
The country star added that his second favorite gift was also of the live variety.
