Thomas Rhett’s Wife Is Real Upset With Him Right Now

Thomas Rhett’s Wife Is Real Upset With Him Right Now

Thomas Rhett may be working his way to the top as a country performer, but he has a great reputation of  being being a talented and successful songwriter. He co-wrote Jason Aldean’s “1994”, Lee Brice’s “ Parking Lot Party”, and one other song that caused   some minor marital discord when he let another artist cut it.

Thomas Rhett also co-wrote Florida Georgia Line’s current smash “ Round Here”.  Thomas told USA Today, “ My wife says ‘Round Here is her favorite song that I’ve ever written,  she always said, I don’t care if that song sits in a pile forever, please don’t let anybody else cut that song.”  Rodney Clawson and Chris Tompkins co-wrote ‘Round Here’ with Rhett, and they decided to let Florida Georgia Line have it. So, he had to call his wife of 10 months and break the news.

“I don’t know if she cried, but she was close to it,” “To this day, she’s like, ‘I can’t believe you gave away that song.” Thomas  is currently on tour with Jason Aldean.

In the USA Today article, he also talks about growing up as country hitmaker Rhett Akins’ son, which meant opportunities to rub elbows with stars like Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton. He even shares a story that Blake once helped him with an English project. No word on what his grade was!

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
