Family is tough. There are the happy moments, the sad moments and everything in between. Country singer-songwriter Thomas Rhett should know. As the father of two daughters, he is all too familiar with everything dads do for their children.
“Things Dads Do”
On Jun. 12, Rhett officially debuted his new single, “Things Dads Do,” live at the Grand Ole Opry. Although he both announced and played the single on his Instagram account last year, this was his first live performance of the song. In what was a truly touching performance, he honored fathers everywhere for everything they do for their children.
Rhett could’ve also sang about how dads help their children write the lyrics to their music. What made this song so much more special for Rhett was that he collaborated with his own dad, Rhett Akins, to write the touching and endearing lyrics about fatherhood.
As a fellow singer-songwriter, Akins also appeared alongside his son at the legendary theater to perform the touching song. On Jun. 13, Rhett posted a short segment of their performance on his Twitter account.
Thanks @opry for having us on to debut “Things Dads Do” last night. Excited for it to be y’all’s on Wednesday.
