Fast-rising country star Thomas Rhett had a big year in 2013, scoring his biggest hit to date with "It Goes Like This" -- a song he co-wrote with his father, singer-songwriter Rhett Akins -- and releasing his debut album of the same name. The Georgia native's still-budding career began as a songwriter, but he signed a recording deal with Big Machine Records' Vallory Music Group in 2011 and released two singles -- Something to Do With My Hands" and "Beer with Jesus" -- in 2012. In addition to his own hit songs, Rhett continued to write songs with others, getting co-writing credits on 2013 a diverse range of hits including Jason Aldean's "1994" and Florida Georgia Line's "Round Here." As his songwriting and recording career have blossomed, Rhett is gaining a reputation for putting on high-energy concerts. He's on tour close to 300 days a year, so fans can pick up tickets to see him headlining his own club dates, on the country festival circuit, or supporting major country acts on arena stages.
