With a career as hot as Thomas Rhett‘s, the superstar can pretty much hand-pick any songwriter in Nashville to join him for a songwriting session. But, at the end of the day, the father of three says his own dad, singer/songwriter Rhett Akins, is hands-down his favorite co-writer in town.
“My favorite person to write with, as a whole, I think is my dad,” he recently revealed in an interview with his record label. “Even though I write with a bunch of other people, my dad and I do have a pretty special bond. Probably because he’s my dad, but he’s also like a really good friend of mine and a really fun co-writer.”

What do you get your son who just won ACM Song of the Year and Male Vocalist? A 1940 @martinguitar D-18. Many hits to be written on this! I also have a daughter @kasey_akins who is about to graduate college. That's bigger than anything we've ever done. She'll get a lifetime supply of noodles and Netflix
The pair have collaborated on countless songs together, including three tracks on Thomas Rhett’s latest album, Center Point Road. Rhett Akins even joined Thomas Rhett on tour in 2019, opening up his Very Hot Summer Tour with an acoustic set.
