It was a night just as magical as one would imagine when superstar Thomas Rhett took the stage on Friday, October 26 at The Forum in Inglewood, California, completely blowing the crowd away.  His intoxicating vocals and infectious laugh made the entire evening one for the books, but of course, support from Midland and Brett Young only felt like extra icing on the cake.

Midland kicked off the night with an electrifying opening set, handling the responsibility of getting the entire crowd amped up for the rest of the night on their shoulders like the pros that they are. Performing some of their hits like “Check Chasin’ Country” and “Drinking Problem,” they really got the crowd moving and grooving. Playing a mix of covers and songs from their previous albums, this trio really proved they’re on the climb to headlining their own large-scale tours soon!  

With lots of cheer and chatter, we all looked forward to watching the SoCal native take the stage. Walking out in a Lakers jersey, the country star brought his A-game. Singing hits like “In Case You Didn’t Know,” “Catch” and “Mercy,” getting the crowd all in the feels.


During his performance of “Mercy,” he just completely stopped the music and let the crowd take over.  I’m pretty sure every single person at the venue was singing their hearts out at that point, it was beautiful. A short but sweet set, Brett Young really left an impression on the crowd.

Finally, it was time for the star of the show, Thomas Rhett was gearing up to take the stage and you could feel the energy of the fans buzzin’ with anticipation. Emerging from a cloud of smoke, Rhett kicked off the 90-minute set with his signature hit, “Leave Right Now.” The way he interacted with his audience, often shaking their hands, and even coming halfway up the bleachers, he managed to make the massive indoor arena feel like an intimate small show. Making every person in attendance feel special at the 17,000+ capacity venue is no small feat, including the one lucky little girl who he actually brought up on stage with him!


Playing chart toppers like “T-Shirt,” “Life Changes,” and “Sixteen,” Rhett surprised his audience with a remix performance of “Suit and Tie” and “You Make Me Wanna.” Switching from the guitar to the piano for “Marry Me,” he truly displayed his artistry for all to witness that evening. And of course, his performance would not be possible without the help of his band who he did not forget to mention. In fact, he brought each member up to center stage letting them be in the lime light for a little.

To wrap up the night, Rhett played some classics off his freshman release, “Die A Happy Man,” and “Crash and Burn,” giving fans a much-deserved taste of his unstoppable catalog that only continues to grow with each new album release.

And so, to sum it all up, the night was as perfect as I could have ever imagined. One could say I can now “die a happy fan,” I think we could use a comedic drum snare right about now.
