Thomas Rhett’s Very Hot Summer Tour lived up to its name when it made a stop at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey on Thursday (August 1). Joining the reigning ACM Awards Male Artist of the Year were Dustin Lynch, Russell Dickerson and Rhett Akins.
Kicking off the show with a short acoustic set was singer/songwriter Rhett Akins, who also happens to be Thomas Rhett’s father. Best known for his 90s hit “That Ain’t My Truck,” Akins is also a famed songwriter, having penned hits for a number of A-list country stars, including Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean.
Dickerson brought the “RD Party” – as he likes to call it – with an energetic set that included fan favorites “Blue Tacoma,” “Yours” and “Billions.”
Proving he could live up to the task of headlining amphitheaters himself one day, Dustin Lynch delivered a solid 50-minute set that was packed with hits. During his time on stage, Lynch was lively and engaging. He closed his set with a performance of “Good Girl” that had the entire sold-out crowd singing along.
Thomas Rhett exploded onto the stage (literally!) for a 90-minute set that had fans singing along from start to finish. With a setlist that included hits ranging from his first chart-topping single, “It Goes Like This,” to his latest No.1, “Look What God Gave Her,” Rhett had fans in the palm of his hand throughout the night. While upbeat numbers like “Vacation” made the show feel like one big party, songs like “Remember You Young” gave the show a more intimate feel.
Rhett truly brought his A-game on this tour and the production was top-notch. The Very Hot Summer Tour runs through October 12. Click HERE to see if it’s coming to a city near you.
