Thomas Rhett and his family embraced the winter weather and worked on their ski skills in a recent trip out west. 

The country star took to social media to show off their adventure in a picture featuring him, his wife, Lauren, and their four daughters, Willa Gray, 7, Ada James, 5, Lillie Carolina, 13 months, and Lennon Love, 2½, all huddled together in a pile of snow. 

“Loved this trip out west! Most snow I’ve ever seen in my life. @laur_akins one more kid and we got ourselves a basketball team 😂” he joked in his caption. 

In a previous post, Rhett highlighted Willa’s impressive skills on the slopes. The father and daughter posed for a photo together in their snow gear before effortlessly making their way down the mountain in the following clip. 

“In a year WG is gonna smoke us all down the mountain!” the proud dad wrote.

Life has truly changed over the past few years for Rhett. In 2017, he and Lauren were just starting their family with the adoption of their daughter Willa Gray. Suddenly they blinked, and now they have a full house. Like the “Church Boots” singer said in his post, all they need is one more kid and they’d have themselves just enough players to form a basketball team. 

Fans took to the comment section to speculate if this was Rhett’s way of hinting that he might be ready for another little one, but as of right now, there have been no signs indicating that the couple is adding their family.

Even with his busy artist schedule, Rhett always makes it a point to get in plenty of quality time with his family. Lauren shared a glimpse into their holiday season with a series of adorable photos and videos that included matching family pajamas, plenty of festival Christmas lights, decorating the tree, and a visit with Santa. 

Her caption read, “It’s been the most wonderful time of the year with my sweet little fam 🎄✨💕 Happy Birthday Jesus and Happy New year to everyone 🥰”

2023 Tour

With the new year in full swing, the father of four is gearing up for the Canadian leg of his Bring The Bar To You Tour with special guests Jordan Davis and Kameron Marlowe.

Later, he will embark on the highly anticipated Home Team Tour 23 alongside Cole Swindell and Nate Smith. On Thursday (Nov. 3), Rhett revealed that this trek will include stops in 40 cities and 27 states.

“HOME TEAM, this tour is for YOU! Hitting the road all across the US next year and bringing my buddies @ColeSwindell & @NateSmith with me,” Rhett’s wrote in excitement.

He shared the news through a light-hearted video on social media in which he sported various jerseys that represent the home teams of the many tour destinations during a mock press conference.

“Being on the road is one of my favorite places to be,” he shared. “I can’t wait to see the joy on y’alls faces next year and with my buddies Cole Swindell and Nate Smith. We’re definitely gonna have a good time.”

These US tour dates will be produced by Live Nation, presented by Dos Primos Tequila and Fueled by Marathon. He’ll kick things off on May 4 in Des Moines, IA at Wells Fargo Arena and end at Thomas Rhett’s home team’s Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
