Early life

Rhett was born in Valdosta, Georgia, [1] to Paige Braswell and country singer Rhett Akins, and grew up knowing other singers including Tim McGraw and Brooks & Dunn. [5] After learning to play drums while attending junior high school, Rhett later would go onstage with his father and play. In high school, he was part of a band named The High Heeled Flip Flops. [6] Besides music, he did not have a career choice in mind. After high school, Rhett went to college at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, to study communications, mainly because his friends were going to college and he didn't know what else to do. [7] Rhett's interest in music grew throughout the years and as a result he failed to keep his promise to his mom—he dropped out of college when he was 20 to pursue a career in music. [8] One night while he was playing at a club, an executive from Big Machine Label Group approached him and offered him a publishing deal to write songs. He accepted and wrote many songs for the company. [5]
