Thomas Rhett tells Rolling Stone Magazine that he wants to have Kenny Chesney’s career in 10 years. “Hopefully, in 10 years we’re still doing this and hopefully it’s on a stadium level. I think what Kenny Chesney has done so well is not only does he have great music, but he’s created such an atmosphere that even if you only like a couple of Kenny Chesney songs, you’re still going to that show because you’re going to feel like you’ve escaped reality for three or four hours. I think that’s what Chesney and people like Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean have all done so well.”
