Thomas Rhett Remembers Hooking Himself a Big One

Thomas Rhett Remembers Hooking Himself a Big One

This week marks an anniversary from last year that Thomas Rhett would like to forget. Turns out that since he couldn’t be on the road due to quarantine, Thomas took his family to Colorado, and decided to do a little fishing.

Well, things didn’t go as planned…but Thomas did hook himself a big one…just too bad, HE was the big one.

Thomas shared the story, “Well, I’d had three or four Miller Lights, let’s just preface it with that. And I was trying to cast into the wind, and I’m not a super-experienced fly fisherman and so when I casted back and went forward, the wind took it and just whipped it right into the back of my leg. And I started limping over to my wife and I was like, ‘So what do I need to do?’ She’s like, ‘You’re gonna have to push it through the other side.’ And I was like, ‘This is gonna be terrible.’ But thank you for Miller Lite because I think it would have been a lot more painful without it.”

Taking the whole episode in stride, Thomas recalls a time when he was on a fishing trip with his Grandfather, and one of Thomas’ errant casts ended up in his Grandfather’s neck. “There was one time when I was about nine years old that I slung my rod back and I hooked him right in the neck with a treble hook. I watched a doctor pull it out, and so when I hooked myself right in the back of the leg, I looked at the sky and said, ‘God, I deserve every bit of this.'”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
