Thomas Rhett Talks ‘Legit Co-Headlining Tour’ With Brett Eldredge
Thomas Rhett is currently out on the road, co-headlining the 2015 CMT on Tour, dubbed the "Suits and Boots Tour," with Brett Eldredge, and the "Die a Happy Man" singer says that he's happy to be spending his time on tour with one of his closest friends.
"Me and Brett have always talked about touring together, so this tour is a legit co-headlining tour," Rhett tells The Boot. "... Our personalities just really mesh, so for us to be on tour, it’s just like a big comedy stand-up act, if you will.
"And then [opening act] Danielle [Bradbery], I think, is one of the most talented female singers in the world," Rhett continues, "and so it’s nice for her to get out there and start creating a fan base on her own."
Rhett and Eldredge's tour comes on the heels of the release of Rhett's sophomore album, Tangled Up, which includes the No. 1 single "Crash and Burn." Although it had been only two years since Rhett's debut album, It Goes Like This, was released, he says that much changed between the two projects.
"It’s not like it was harder work than it’s ever been, it’s just different work," Rhett explains. "Because the record sounds so different, for us to make our live shows sound like the record was much more of a challenge. But it’s been a lot of fun."
With five consecutive chart-topping singles to his credit, including the multi-platinum "It Goes Like This," the 25-year-old admits that success has changed his personal life as well.
"Little things have been different," he maintains. "I go to Chili’s all the time. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. Whereas I used go to Chili’s and just sit down and eat, it’s become somewhat of a, ‘Hey, there’s Thomas Rhett …,’ and for me that’s a little bit weird."
