Thomas Rhett still gets nervous on stage:

Thomas Rhett may have some BIG hit songs on the radio…but he says he still gets nervous:

“You know, I get nervous before every show,” Rhett says. “It doesn’t matter if I’m playing for my momma or 20,000 people. I guess it turns into energy though when I get on stage.”

Even though he says he gets nervous, he still puts on one hell of a show:

“We try to put the set together to where we can have transitions that feel right,” Rhett says. “It’s like, you knock ‘em, you knock ‘em, you knock ‘em and then you give them a three-minute chance to breathe and then you knock ‘em out again. It never stops … Our set this year, there’s no time to breathe. I think it took until song nine until I could get a sip of water.”

 

Proceeds from ticket sales for the show will benefit ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the ACM that is dedicated to improving lives through the power of music. ACM Lifting Lives partners with artists to develop and fund music-related therapy and education programs.
