Even the most casual country music fan could tell you that Kenny Chesney or Darius Rucker is likely country music’s biggest college football fan. Or are they? It seems like kind of new kid on the block, Thomas Rhett is poised for a takeover of the coveted title of “Country Music’s Biggest College Fan.”

Rhett grew up in Georgia and his father (legendary songwriter, Thomas Rhett Akins Sr.) attended UGA for a year, before leaving to focus on his music career. To spice things up a bit, Rhett married a Tennessee Vols fan. Most SEC fans would agree– that’s a tough fall for a married couple.

Rhett’s Instagram account boasts photos from college football powerhouses like The Ohio State University, Notre Dame and the blue turf of Boise State. Rhett’s covered a lot of ground in his run to CMA-nominated New Artist of the Year— most of it on some kind of football field.
