Thomas Rhett Says Winning Award With Carrie Underwood Is ‘Absolutely Nuts’

"I'm literally watching horses graze," Thomas Rhett says as he signs onto Zoom with Elvis Duran and the Morning Show. Thomas Rhett is definitely not in Nashville anymore! "My family's been on a road trip for a couple weeks.... We’re in Zion national park right now just doing hikes and living life.... it’s been awesome out here."

However before traveling on the road Rhett made it to Nashville to do his virtual iHeartRadio Music Festival performance. "I never done a virtual performance like this. It was actually really amazing and I can’t wait for you to watch it tonight."

Most recently, Rhett has been in the news for winning 'Entertainer of the Year,' at the ACM Awards, sharing the big award with star Carrie Underwood. "I’ll take a half for sure, that was unbelievable," Rhett says. "Winning that with Carrie is absolutely nuts and doing it with someone that I have literally looked up to since i was 15 16 years old."

Listen to Thomas Rhett's full interview with Elvis Duran above and make sure to watch what we can only imagine will be an incredible performance at our iHeartRadio Music Festival tonight at 9pm ET on The CW app.
