On 5 March, stars from all music genres took the stage at the I-Heart Radio Music Awards. Justin Timberlake won song of the year, Miley Cyrus forgot her pants and Chris Martin had some cute kids read his acceptance speech.
But, for the world of country music, no moment shined brighter than the sole country performance of the night. That moment belonged to Thomas Rhett, who performed his “Star of the Show” song, which is also his latest number one hit.
His performance started with the country music star seated on a comfy couch while he sang the tune. Eventually, Rhett had a red carpet rolled out for him while dancers performed around him. During the performance, he also took the time to shake hands with fans who were lined up along his route.
All in all, Rhett did the world of country music proud with his performance. While this was just a taste of what the genre has to offer, it’s certain that his performance will draw more fans to country music. He also took home the prize for Country Artist of the Year. Naturally, Rhett was extremely excited about the performance and the win. After the show, he went on to thank his fans on social media and share photos of the event.
While the win was definitely an exciting one, Rhett and his wife are much more excited about the coming addition to their family. The couple is expecting a daughter later this year and will also be adopting a child from Africa.
For a long while, the couple had attempted to hide the news. Rhett’s wife, Lauren, was even able to hide her pregnancy at the Grammy’s earlier this year. However, as you can see from the photos, that is no longer possible. The couple is 18 weeks along and they are both extremely excited about the pregnancy.
