The ACM’s brand new Co-Entertainer of the Year (is that how we say it now?) Thomas Rhett took to his socials to share a lengthy post about his win for Entertainer of the Year at last night’s 2020 ACM Awards.
Thomas posted to Instagram in what appeared to be a longer acceptance speech to include everyone, “Still can’t believe last night was real. Would like to spend some time thanking every single person that has had a hand in my journey. From my family- Lauren, Willa, Ada and Lennon this is all for you every single day. My friends that have been there since college- my dad, Rhett Akins, who has been my biggest cheerleader and favorite co-writer since I was old enough to hold a guitar – to my Mom and Stepdad, whose love and unwavering support has made this dream possible – to my publisher, Ben Vaughn, who believed in me first – to Allison Jones and Scott Borchetta for taking a chance on a 19 year old kid in the Big Machine Records conference room.”
He continued, “Virginia, Harry, Nichole, and the whole G Major team- Brian O’Connell and everyone at Live Nation and Joey Lee and everyone at WME and everyone at BMI. Duane Clark and FBMM. George Briner and the entire Valory Music Co team. Jesse, Dann and every single creative who has brought life and love to my music. Tyne and GreenRoom PR Team. Everyone at Country Radio who has ever supported me and played my music. AND My incredible band and crew – and every single band and crew out there struggling to make ends meet right now – my heart is with you and your families.”
Rhett added, “This can not and never will be done alone. What a great privilege it is to share this with so many people that I love. Thank you again to the ACMs and to all of you #acmawards.”
