Thomas Rhett Learned A Lot About Songwriting From Dad

While Thomas Rhett has written a lot of great songs for himself, he also writes songs for other people, and he says his dad Rhett Akins taught him a lot about how to do that right.  Thomas says that after awhile you get to learn what certain artists like which teaches you “how to write that song for that person.”

Thomas says his dad has “got it down to a science,” and will even pitch songs to artists, like say Jason Aldean, in the singer’s own voice. He notes, “dad’ll go in there and actually try to sing it like Jason so that when Jason hears the demo it’s already kind of in his head.”
