This Thanksgiving Dish Is a Hard Pass for Thomas Rhett
Thanksgiving it rapidly approaching and, like many of us, there is one dish that Thomas Rhett will be passing on this year. Nope, it's not the green bean casserole or the candied yams, which most people tend to hate on.
Rhett says he just doesn't understand the hype around cranberry sauce. He doesn't specify it it's the homemade version, made with real, whole cranberries, that he doesn't like, or the gelatinous glop that comes from a can, he's just not into it, period.
“I think my least favorite Thanksgiving dish is like, the cranberry spread," he shares in an interview via his record label. "I’ve never understood that, why that is a part of Thanksgiving tradition. I need to probably go back into the history books to understand why, but that is one item that I skip over every time.”
Rhett will be enjoying another Thanksgiving with his family of six. He and his wife Lauren share four children together, Willa Gray, 7, Ada James, 5, Lennon Love, 2, and Lillie Carolina, 1.
The couple celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary in October. Traditionally the 10th year is the "diamond anniversary" so Rhett got his wife a diamond ring. Lauren, however, went all out creating a book highlighting every year of their marriage. For each year, she also gave him a gift. To mark their 10th year, she gave him a custom horse saddle since they just recently purchased some horses for their farm.
It appears the "Where We Started" singer will be home for the holidays, too, with no shows on the calendar at the moment. His earliest date in 2023 is Feb. 9 in Vancouver.
Things will ramp up just in time for summer as he will be embarking on his Home Team Tour. The 40-date trek will begin May 4 in Des Moines, Iowa and will wrap Sept. 29 in Nashville. Cole Swindell and Nate Smith will join him as direct support.
