Thomas Rhett Got Snapchat Lessons From Brett Eldredge
Though more celebrities have adopted Snapchat over the last year or so, some are still a bit hesitant ... until they find out how fun it is. Thomas Rhett was one of the bystanders until Brett Eldredge showed him how it's done.
Rhett says Eldredge explained to him the transient nature of the photo and video sharing app and how it can let fans into your day-to-day life.
"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," Rhett says (quote via Sounds Like Nashville).
Fans can now get a glimpse into the antics of tour, and with these guys, there are sure to be plenty. "It is so random. I don’t think I can plan anything that we have done on Snapchat,” Rhett adds. "I’ve had a blast gettin’ to learn how to use it.”
Add “thomasrhett” on Snapchat to get a look at what Rhett will be up to this summer on tour with Jason Aldean, which he says has been "incredible" so far. The Big Machine artist says they "ramped up" their production this year to take over the middle slot in the show, and he’s loving seeing fans' responses.
"Obviously having one hit and havin’ five that you can play that you know the crowd knows is a whole lot different energy. People show up and the place is packed by the time we go on stage, so it really is just special to get out there,” he says.
Rhett recently took home a Billboard Music Award for his single "Die a Happy Man," which also won Song of the Year at the American Country Countdown Awards.
