Thomas Rhett Reveals the Most 'Terrifying' Part of His Career So Far

Thomas Rhett will always be country in his soul, but he’s not so country anymore in his soles.

The rising country superstar reveals in a new interview with Billboard why the moment he decided to stop wearing cowboy boots on stage has been scariest moment of his career so far.

“During my live shows, I was wearing nothing but cowboy boots,” Thomas says. “When I started to move around the stage a whole lot more and my show became way more energetic, I was like ‘I have to ditch these cowboy boots because I’m literally going to break my ankle.’ That’s when I started to wear sneakers on stage, which was probably the most terrifying transition as a country artist that I have ever made in my whole life.”

Thomas, who revealed he now collects sneakers, is set to debut his new single “Craving You,” a collaboration with Maren Morris, on Friday (3/31).
