One of the co-writers on THOMAS RHETT’s “Star of the Show” is his dad, singer-songwriter RHETT AKINS. The song’s huge NOW, even though they wrote it five years ago. And when I say “wrote” . . . I mean it.
Thomas said, quote, “He showed me this old notebook that’s been water damaged for five years and he actually has the day we wrote [it.] He might be the only person that still actually physically writes lyrics out and doesn’t keep it on a laptop.”
