About Thomas Rhett: Hailing from Valdosta, GA, music
has been a part of twenty-two-year-old Thomas Rhett’s life for as long
as he can remember. He grew up in a musical family watching father Rhett
Akins work as an artist and a hit songwriter. In high school, Thomas
Rhett dabbled in songwriting and playing guitar before forming a band
with some friends. In 2010, while still a student at Lipscomb University
in Nashville, Thomas Rhett signed his first publishing deal with EMI.
Shortly thereafter he landed his first cut on Jason Aldean’s
platinum-selling album MY KINDA PARTY with “I Ain’t Ready To Quit.” Just
a year later, he signed a record contract with The Valory Music Co. He
is currently in the studio working on his debut album with famed
producer Jay Joyce, which will feature the Top 15 debut single,
“Something To Do With My Hands,” and current single “Beer With Jesus.”
This summer, Thomas Rhett has been an opener on Toby Keith’s Live In Overdrive Tour, Presented by Ford F-series. Previously, he’s toured with Blake Shelton, Brantley Gilbert, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Pat Green, among others. Visit for tour dates and more.

About Joanna Smith: Joanna Smith’s laser focus as a
country singer/songwriter was born out of one simple fact – music was
engrained in her soul from a young age, and nothing was going to get in
the way of a dream that for hers is more of a destiny. A native of
Crestview (Unincorporated), Georgia, her reverence for tradition, a
healthy respect for the present and a desire to make her mark on the
future have all led to now, to a deal with RCA Records and sitting
side-by-side with acclaimed producer Buddy Cannon (Kenny Chesney, Reba
McEntire) making country music with themes of heartbreak, forgiveness,
and even good ol’ fashioned murder. Her Be What It Wants To Be EP, which hit stores earlier this year, contains her new hit “We Can’t Be Friends.” Visit to learn more.
