Music has always been in Rhett Akins' blood. The Valdosta, GA. native grew up in a close-knit family that supported his musical interests and his desire to pursue music as a career. Early in life, he learned to play guitar, began writing songs, and dreamed of being a songwriter and performer.

His musical interests and influences spanned all genres and included everything from George Jones and George Strait to The Rolling Stones and The Allman Brothers Band. In 1992 he decided to follow his dream to seek his fortune as a writer and performer and moved to Nashville where he soon landed a publishing deal.
As a result of that deal one of Rhett's song demo tapes found it's way to the reactivated Decca Records label and impressed by what they heard, they quickly signed Rhett to a recording contract. In 1995 his first album, "A Thousand Memories" was released to critical acclaim and spawned his first # 1 single "That Ain't My Truck". That success was duplicated the following year with his second #1 single, "Don't Get Me Started", from his follow up album "Somebody New".
At the same time Rhett was becoming a polished live performance act, playing as many as 150-200 shows a year and mastering his ability to entertain a crowd. In 1997 he released his third album for Decca, "What Livin's All About", which contained "More Than Everything" and "Better Than It Used To Be".
Rhett's latest album is entitled, "Friday Night In Dixie" on Audium Records. This album contains a variety of songs like "Highway Sunrise", "In Your Love", and the title track "Friday Night In Dixie" which Rhett co-wrote with another one of his musical influences, Charlie Daniels. "Friday Night In Dixie" also features a special Back porch Acoustic Version of Rhett's signature song, "That Ain't My Truck.
With his total involvement in the writing, producing, and recording of this album, Rhett completes the journey from singer, to songwriter, to artist. An artist that knows what he wants to say and how he wants to say it. It's been a long way since those early days in Valdosta but this album shows it was worth it.
