Thomas Rhett has been on a hot streak lately, winning awards every time he turns around. His friend, country star Brett Eldredge has got him on a new streak — one that’s based in the hottest technology.
While Rhett still Instagrams and tweets with the best of them — usually about his wife and/or his dogs — with the help of Eldridge, he has joined the Snapchat community to give fans an insider view of his day-to-day activities without overloading his other social accounts.
Conveniently for Rhett, the Snapchat newbie was on tour with Eldredge and found out his friend was an expert at using the app. A lesson or two later and Rhett was using all the right filters and geotags.
“It is so random. I don’t think I can plan anything that we have done on Snapchat,” Rhett told Sounds Like Nashville. “I never even wanted to use Snapchat until I was on the road with Brett Eldredge and noticed that he literally did it all day long, and when he got in bed he would…’Hey, I’m goin’ to bed.’. But, it’s such a fun way to just…’cause you can only post so many Instagrams a day, but you can literally Snap a thousand things a day and it only lasts for the day and it’s like seven seconds long. So, I’ve had a blast gettin’ to learn how to use it.”
Since Rhett has gotten schooled in Snapchat he posted from various locatoins, including the Billboard Music Awards, where he won Top Country Song for his hit single “Die a Happy Man.”
Rhett’s current single, “T-Shirt,” has been blowing up the charts as well. To see his posts about that and more, fans can add ‘thomasrhett’ as a Snapchat friend.
